Greater circularity is the goal. Polestar is loud and proud when it comes to our environmental ambitions, circularity our ultimate aim. The components of used products becoming raw material for new products is, after all, a natural progression.
Not only are we striving for that ourselves, we’re teaming up with those who share the same ambitions. Swedish outdoor brand Houdini, an inspiration and a collaborator of ours for some time, is making huge strides towards complete circularity. Such as the world’s first clothing compost, run by Houdini together with Stockholm’s Rosendals Trädgård. The ecologically sourced garments are first created in the southwestern Swedish ski town of Ulricehamn. These same fabrics end their life cycle in the clothing compost test lab of Rosendals. And in keeping with our loud-and-proud approach, we want to (digitally) shout it from the rooftops. So, we made a video about it. See above.
Accelerating the change to a more sustainable future is like assembling a jigsaw puzzle. And as such, the challenge, can be approached from multiple angles while still working towards the same picture of sustainability. Putting electric performance cars on the road is certainly a corner stone, but many other pieces remain. Allowing the grid, our homes, and more to rely on more and more renewable energy being one of them.
Sometimes, it’s okay to judge a book by its cover. It is winning design awards, after all.
