Prada have found a way to engineer their iconic nylon bag fabric from trash plastic scooped out of the oceans. This is the latest eco-initiative from the luxury fashion brands. The fashion industry is a major contributor to global warming and it's good to see Prada setting the trends.

Saving the world is an expensive business in the luxury fashion industry. Prada's eco-bags are eye-wateringly expensive. For most folk, the greenest thing we can do is stop buying so much stuff. Let's hope that new sustainable fashion initiatives can be offered at a democratic price point, making it available to all.
