Nature is asking that we (need to) change our consumerism. BEVAR is looking specifically into our habits about clothes. Consumption of clothes has increased rapidly in Western societies, resulting in a massive textile material stream which creates environmental problems. The textile industry is the second worst industry when it comes to causing environmental problems, only preceded by oil and gas production. These
problems are in large part due to the habits of the consumer. A piece of clothing is only used for at the very short time and is usually thrown out way before the actual end of its lifetime. BEVAR has been working for at a couple of years trying to expand the time of use. We have been concentrating on the challenge concerning the waste of jeans. They are causing tremendous problems because of the extreme use of water, chemicals, and transportation in producing them.
Out of wasted jeans, BEVAR has been creating new products. E.g. pillows, aprons and potholders. Employed and involved in the upcycling-process has been “fleksjobvisiterede” (fellow citizens that for different reasons are not able to work full time, and will have a contract that e.g. gives them a salary for 4 hours work every week in addition to governmental support). The actual workplace is situated in a socially and economically challenged area in Denmark.
BEVAR is a social enterprise, registered as such in Denmark.
