Children grow so rapidly, and parents spend thousands of dollars on new items especially during the first 5 years. Clothing also gets so worn out, as children become more active on they start walking, that it’s impossible to hand them down as compared to infant items. All the worn clothing, unfortunately gets tossed in the trash. Fashion waste hurts our environment, as it ends up in landfills not to mention, chemicals used in toxic dyes, fuels burned due to shipping items and the amount of water used to make cotton items. The fashion industry is the second largest polluter, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Petit Pli, is an innovative children’s wear concept because it’s water-resistant garments actually grows as the child grows! The pleated fabric expands bi-directionally, up to 7 sizes and is light weight. Ryan Mario Yasin, a UK based engineer developed Petite Pli, after searching for outfits for his niece and nephew.
