A Sustainable Lifecycle

Congratulations, you've taken that first step to becoming more eco conscious by joining the slow fashion movement. Supporting sustainable brands like Unoa is a great start but what more can we do at home to lower our carbon footprint and be more green? Washing clothes is a tedious chore in our daily lives but what if you could be helping the planet whilst doing the laundry? First up is the actual process of washing, the machine you're using will have an energy rating and the higher the rating the less energy consumed. However not everyone can afford a new washing machine plus replacing a working machine creates unnecessary waste, so there are other ways to reduce your carbon footprint.  Is...

I see right through

When we buy clothes we usually shop online or on the high street with the only thoughts crossing our mind being the fit and cost of the product. But there are more costs to clothing than just money. How many of us stop to think of the impact the said tshirt we are holding in our hands has and will have on the environment, makers and individuals who wear it?  That's why at Unoa we are confident about the transparency of our products and strive to bring you all a guilt free shopping experience. Below is a summary of the various processes involved in carefully creating a Unoa garment, right from the growth of the cotton, to shipping it to...

Revolt and Rebel

The number one issue that the whole of humanity is facing is climate change, people can feel helpless but that is about to change.

The Power of Periods

At Unoa we are all about body positivity and female empowerment, working closely to train women in the workplace and promote gender equality. We are also all about sustainable fashion and sustainable living. Which is why it's so important as females to understand how we can make a difference in the fight against plastic pollution and period poverty. Many women around the world are still shamed for their periods and suffer from period poverty. This could be due to the masculine concept that a woman's bodily functions are seen as monstrous as told by *Barbara Creed*. It’s still somewhat a taboo subject to speak openly about periods in general, when in reality it is a natural occurrence that happens to...

The Revolution is Beautiful ft The Social Society

We love a revolution here at Unoa and having our name rooted in the Greek word, Eunoia, meaning Beautiful Thinking, we want this ethical and sustainable revolution that is sweeping the planet, to be a very beautiful one too. With that said, the title of this blog post and the slogan for our Charity T-Shirts will make perfectly beautiful sense to you. Having spent time in the business and money orientated world, we have all seen horrible quantities of harmful waste in the last few decades, and as things began to hit a monumental crescendo, with landfill sites filled to the brim around the planet, the backlash hit out – organisations everywhere are now fighting hard to prevent useable products...
