Eco Threads Young Enterprise company
Eco Threads is an environmentally friendly clothing company created by our students. Their mission is to create eco friendly products using organic and recycled materials.
Students decided that T-shirts were a product that they themselves would be interested in purchasing, and after researching environmental issues surrounding clothes production, the group wanted to make their products environmentally friendly. They chose to use a globe for their logo to represent the world becoming a more eco-friendly place.
500 shares were sold to get the company started so that raw materials could be purchased. To date Eco Threads have sold almost £650 worth of T-shirts. They also recently secured a bulk order of 150 T-shirts to be sold at a local music festival.
They were also successful in securing a trio of Young Enterprise awards in 2017. Read our blog to find out how they did it!
