The Vollebak Plant & Algae T-shirt is available for pre-ordering now and will make you think much more carefully about the sort of clothing you buy into and the after-effects it may well be having on the climate and environment. This cleverly conceived and executed piece of apparel from Vollebak is grown in forests and bio-reactors and if you want to get your hands on this highly unusual creation, the waiting list is now open.
Not Your Average T-Shirt
Vollebak don’t do things in half measures when it comes to creating their clothing and they’re always prepared to push the boat out a little when it comes to the design and crafting of their wares. The Plant & Algae T-Shirt continues this tradition and each one is built from pulped eucalyptus and beech from sustainably managed forests and algae grown in bioreactors. Needless to say, these aren’t materials that you’ll find in the average high street shop and they’ve been chosen for a very specific reason.
The Vollebak Plant & Algae T-Shirt is made from materials as old as time and doesn’t impact the environment in the same manner as most clothing manufacturing today. You can think of algae as a space age material that just happens to be 1.5 billion years old. As the original source of all plant life on the planet it consumes carbon dioxide, produces up to 80% of the oxygen on Earth, and even holds the key to our survival on other planets – so, it’s a pretty big deal and that’s why it’s been chosen as a core material of this innovative tee.
Vollebak typically focus on using, man-made super materials in their apparel creations in the past such as carbon fibre and graphene, this Plant & Algae T-shirt represents somewhat of a departure for the clothing brand. They wanted to start the journey of getting algae into clothing too and as the Plant and Algae T Shirt is made from nature it doesn’t end its life like any other piece of clothing either. When you’ve finished with the t shirt it biodegrades in the earth in 12 weeks and turns into worm food – you can either bury it in your garden or put it out with the compost.
Environmentally Friendly Design

The Plant & Algae T-Shirt is another first class release from the guys at Vollebak who always create a talking point with the clothing that they produce and they’ve done so once again with this stylish and incredibly interesting piece of apparel.
