“Everything is interconnected: by working together for people, animals and nature, we can keep our only home in the world livable”
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.
“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 for example Wehkamp. Each shirt contains 10 to 14 recycled plastic bottles, and a donation per shirt sold is given to the Jane Goodall Institute Netherlands.
We are honoring a supremely special anniversary: Tuesday July 14, 2020 marks the 60th anniversary of Dr. Jane Goodall’s research on wild chimpanzees in Gombe, Tanzania and 60 years of continuous studies through JGI and research partners: Gombe 60!
For this special occasion Waste2Wear donated, together with their partners Repeltec and Logonet brand new ranger uniforms. Uniforms made from an easy care cotton poly twill, made with recycled plastic bottles, treated with Repeltec. Repeltec is a non-toxic insect repellent commonly used in insect repellent lotions that are applied directly to the skin. Repeltec does not kill insects but keeps them at a distance. If a mosquito or other biting insect would come to land on a treated textile its nerve system receives a sort of flash bang, rendering the insect unable to find where to bite. The uniforms are designed by Logonet, an experienced workwear company where comfortability and protection of the workers comes always first.
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 four points, and all four are now more important then ever before:
1. Young people
2. The human brain
3. The resilience of nature
4. The unbeatable human spirit
Waste2Wear is committed to support Jane and her incredible team with different initiatives. Do you want do something as well? Explore the different possibilities now: for Holland go to this page or just google “Jane Goodall” in the country you are in.
