Waste not, want not: scraps-to-caps company Offcut turns its eye to tackling plastic

Offcut is a New Zealand company that makes caps from textile scraps destined for landfill, while dabbling in others initiatives to tackle environmental issues, like planting a tree for every hat sold. But its co-CEOs are now turning their eye to plastic following a recent sourcing trip to Bali, where they were alarmed at just how much of it was clogging up the oceans. Here, Adrien Taylor explains Offcuts’ brand ethos, the mini-documentary they’ve made about their Bali experience and how in the future, the company will be incorporating recycled waste plastic into its hats.
