2021 sees the start of the sustainability and upcycling project with Levi's Spain, which aims to raise awareness of the possibilities of circular fashion. Circular fashion that reduces the impact of fashion on our planet.
As our main activity, Back To Eco sorts Levi's jeans and other unmarketable garments to give them a second life. One part goes to our workshop to be converted into new circular products and another part will be donated to NGOs as clothing.
Back To Eco also collaborates with other activities, such as workshops, joint conferences and/or other activities that you will be able to find out about soon. to find out more about soon.

Fundació Arrels accompanies and assists homeless people who are in the most consolidated stages of exclusion towards a situation that is as autonomous as possible. Among its activities, it has a workshop that seeks to offer people who live or have lived on the street a space where they can occupy their time and feel useful again.
Back To Eco has been commissioning them for years to make the denim notebooks for back to eco and also part of the furniture for our shop-workshop. The furniture is made with old furniture that the Arrels team transforms and creates new designs.
Jeans for weather
A collective campaign promoted by Fundació Solidança, la Taca d'Oli and Back To Eco aimed at increasing the collection of jeans in the Sant Martí district of Barcelona.
The project consists of placing small containers of jeans in entities, schools, shops and all kinds of physical spaces located within the territory. The jeans are sorted and destined for: remanufacturing in the Back To Eco workshop, for second-hand sale in the Solidança / Ropa Amiga shops, for industrial recycling or for some internal activity developed during the project.
