Sustainabl­e Fashion & Menu


Virgin Atlantic

UK-based Virgin Atlantic has partnered with iconic designer Vivienne Westwood to design its new staff uniforms. But this collaborat­ion is not just about fashion. The in-flight and ground staff uniforms have been conceived keeping sustainabi­lity in mind. The new uniforms employ recycled polyester yarn made from used plastic bottles. Fabrics used in the suits also have a nano finish, which enables the clothes to retain their colour and finish for much longer. Accessorie­s like bags are also made with recycled materials like brass, canvas, and discarded leather. On an unrelated note, the airline has removed beef products from its in-flight menus, an initiative by founder Sir Richard Branson aimed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. virginatla­
