Student's Sustainable Clothing Brand Celebrates First Anniversary

Posted by SJV - Wednesday 3 November 2021

Year 12 student Tom Evans has been featured in the business magazine, Punchline Gloucester, as he celebrates the first year of his micro-business, Gymdolfin. Tom sells ethically sourced gym and leisurewear, and he was inspired to start his business after watching Blue Planet 2 on the BBC a year ago.

Tom, speaking to Punchline’s reporter Sarah Wood, said: “Gymdolfin supports efforts to get to net zero, not only by minimising our sportswear’s carbon footprint through using local suppliers and recyclable materials, but also by helping conserve the ocean around us.

“The world’s oceans are estimated to absorb around a third of the carbon emitted by humans. However, the ocean can only continue to reduce the carbon in our atmosphere if it remains unpolluted and the life within it is protected.

“By raising money for ocean conservation charities like the WWFUK, Gymdolfin is helping fund efforts to protect marine habitats and help further our progress towards becoming net zero.”
