“Consumers increasingly expect, or even demand, that their products are produced in a sustainable way. The Cookie Company Group in collaboration with Waste2Wear is supporting the licensing industry to take up this challenge.”

– Sabine Hulsman, CEO of the Cookie Company Group,
a group of Dutch companies dedicated to manufacturing licensed apparel and accessories for European retailers.

The collaboration

Sustainable developments for the licensing industry

The partnership between the Cookie Company Group and Waste2Wear® resulted in the introduction of the brand TRASHCODE®. Under the name TRASHCODE we offer a product range using high quality recycled polyester qualities (R-PET) that allows the licensing industry to become part of the solution of the global transition towards sustainable textiles.”

Some people
call it licencing…
we call it
the magic…

“Because a tablecloth around you’re neck might be fun…but a real cape makes you Superman.”

The Cookie Company started way back in 1996, producing licensed apparel and accessories for large international retailers. They don’t just design clothing and accessories. They are creating pieces of magic for everyone to have.

With TRASHCODE®, the first R-PET initiative in the licensing industry we enable retailers to offer innovative sustainable products to their customers: from swimwear and accessories, to t-shirts and nightwear, from toys to bed textile.

Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob T-shirts made from RPET

The merchandising arm of children’s TV producer Nickelodeon has embarked on a first-of-its-kind agreement to create sustainable fashion and accessories as part of its licensing deal. It has teamed up with Trashcode and sustainable textile pioneer, Waste2wear. The first pieces to launch under the deal will include SpongeBob SquarePants T-shirts, made from 5 – 8 discarded plastic bottles.
