Polyester has been traditionally made out of Petroleum. Our eco-friendly fabrics (which are all our designed prints) use recycled plastic bottles instead of petroleum. We know plastic also uses petroleum as one of the first raw materials, but second used plastic also reduces plastic waste in our oceans. Thus, less petroleum use means 75% less Co2. 1500 litters of gasoline saved for each ton. As of April 2021 we have given a second use to more than 45.800 PET bottles.
Our fabrics use water-based inks, therefore, not containing Volatile organic compound (VOC), which translates into fabrics that don’t harm the environment.
Are made of 100% Organic cotton. No pesticides and respecting the fields biodiversity. Using traditional techniques, organic techniques.
Made of Sugar Cane Pulp. Making sure they are biodegradable Taking care of our environment.
PROGRAM AND CAUSES
Zoologico Leslie Pantin
Early in 2021 we started an awareness campaign aiming to save and protect our wildlife as well as all our endangered species. We prioritized the consciousness of our actions with regards to endangered species and what we as humans are doing on our daily basis since these species are facing extinction faster than ever.
Save the red siskin
As part of our efforts to preserve our fauna, 20% of the proceeds of our Tucacas print are being donated to the Red Siskin Initiative and to the Flora & Fauna Reserve Leslie Pantin. These two organizations aim to protect and save endangered specie such as the spider monkey and the Red Siskin to name a few.
Autismo en Voz alta
We are PROUD sponsors of the Non Porfit Organization Autismo en Voz Alta. This NGO helps young kids and adults with autism to receive the education they have a right to, regardless of their socio-economic background recognizing special education as the biggest hope for integration and improvement of our societies.
Whenever you visit our stores in Caracas you would be able to donate your change or any amount you wish at all to the NGO Alimenta Venezuela.
This organization fights against child malnutrition in Venezuela, by 2021 they provide monthly lunches to 2,520 boys and girls (between 0 and 12 years old) along with 36 nursing mothers, who are previously diagnosed with some degree of malnutrition.
Along with other Venezuelan designers and artists we had the opportunity to design an apron that was later auctioned in order to raise funds for these kids.
In less than 6 months, RSB has been able to provide more than 510 meals!
