When’s the last time you learned of something created for crew by crew? Or something created by crew that’s further caught the attention of megayacht owners and yachting-industry firms? Lauren Wardley has accomplished this with her company Ethical Yacht Wear.
Wardley was working as a full-time second stewardess when she started thinking about traditional crew uniforms. Some entirely incorporate newly manufactured manmade materials, so she began researching alternatives. For a lot of its clothing, from polos to T shirts, Ethical Yacht Wear uses sustainably made cotton. Additionally, for a new line bottoms like shorts and skirts, the company uses recycled polyester performance material. Notably, this fabric includes plastic salvaged from the ocean. Regardless of the uniforms using cotton or the recycled material, Ethical Yacht Wear verifies the credentials of all suppliers in the production chain. Among other things, the suppliers must provide fair wages to their own employees.
