The fascinating story of legendary primatologist Jane Goodall, from a young, strong-willed woman to a globally respected protector of chimpanzees, is a great source of inspiration for us all. The power and the enormous impact she has created with her groundbreaking research, her institute and various programs is overwhelming.
Waste2wear is proud to partner up with the Jane Goodall Institute Netherlands. The foundation of this cooperation is a strong belief that everything is interconnected.
“By connecting different parties with the same values and thoughts about environmental issues, we can use our entrepreneurship as a force for good. We thereby not only encourage donations, but also want to focus on the next step, constructive and sustainable collaborations, ” says Monique Maissan, CEO of Waste2Wear.
Inspiring quotes from Jane Goodall are printed on a variety of shirts made from recycled plastic bottles by Waste2Wear in collaboration with Wehkamp, the biggest online retailer in the Netherlands. Each shirt contains 10 to 14 recycled plastic bottles, and 2.50 euros per shirt sold will be donated to the Jane Goodall Institute Netherlands.
On April 3rd, 2019 during the celebration of the 85th birthday of Dr. Jane Goodall, the collection of shirts has been officially launched, in Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam. You can see a video of the event here.
The Jane Goodall Institute is a global community conservation organization that advances the vision and work of Dr. Jane Goodall. By protecting chimpanzees and inspiring people to preserve nature, we improve the lives of people, animals and the environment.
Being aware of the serious situation our planet is going through. Jane keeps and spreads hope based on 4 points:
1. Young people
2. The human brain
3. The resilience of nature
4. The unbeatable human spirit
Waste2Wear is happy to support Jane and her incredible team with different initiatives, which we will enroll this year. Stay tuned for updates!
