Revolt and Rebel

It can be very overwhelming hearing all the doom and gloom of environmental issues we are facing today. The number one issue that the whole of humanity is facing is climate change, people can feel helpless but that is about to change. There has been so much scientific research into climate change over the past 2 decades but now we need to fight. The fashion industry is up there, with fossil fuels as a main polluter in the consuming world we live in. Which is why Unoa only uses organic cotton to stop the use of harmful pesticides causing global damage. You may have seen our latest collaboration pieces with the Social Society.

The Power of Periods

Quality over Quantity – Clothes that Last

We have been living through insane levels of buying and throwing away, fashion being one of the guiltiest culprits; the more, more, more rhythm has literally started to make us sea sick as global warming causes extreme weather and rising sea levels. Sometimes it feels like we are a generation of profit driven millennials, yet there is no overall profit, in fact only a small minority benefit from mass consumption in the short run.  It is no simple task when looking at the impacts that we as humans and our spending and consumption habits have had on the planet, to wonder how we are going to move forward effectively. Thankfully our conscience is growing in all the right places, thanks...
