Page 10 of 53 has launched his sustainable fashion and design brand at Harrods, having already made waves back in the US. He said he was inspired to turn waste into something desirable after seeing a ton of bottles left behind after a Black Eyed Peas gig, so he created EKOCYCLE in collaboration with Coca Cola (eagle-eyed readers will notice that the first part of the name is Coke spelled backwards). The idea behind the project is that "waste is only waste if we waste it", and turning plastic into a commodity will inspire people to recycle more. EKOCYCLE has partnered with brands like Adidas, Ecoalf, Renew Merchandise, Globe- Trotter, H Brothers, Misfit and MCM to create a range of clothing, accessories and homeware made entirely from recycled materials. They've even created a portable bike and a 3D printer, which is particularly fond of, "It's a blank canvas for creators…and a factory for creative folks who see it as a tool." Each item comes with a label detailing how many bottles went into creating it, which is way better than seeing "made by children in some horrid sweatshop in China" on the tag. 7 11 Issue 73 / 2015 FASHION makes crap cool Everyone's favourite robot man has launched his sustainable brand EKOCYCLE in the UK. Dope. Hot mugsHot guy lands modelling contract The super hot convict aka Jeremy Meeks has landed a deal with White Cross Management Jeremy Meeks' mugshot did the rounds on social media after it was posted on Stockton Police Department's Facebook page last year, and rumours of a modelling contract swiftly followed. Then they were shot down. And now they're back, but this time it's actually happening! Meeks is still serving time – he's working his way through a 27-month sentence for illegal possession of a firearm – but agency White Cross Management have nevertheless put his mugshot on their books. The agency, which has offices in LA and New York, and represents Vogue stars and Abercrombie & Fitch models, signed him up because "everybody deserves a second chance". Also, because look at his face. Although he's banged up, Meeks is already preparing for his new job. He revealed that he's spending his time working out and eating clean so that he's ready to hit the catwalk running when he gets out. He also told ABC News, "I never thought that everyone in the world would recognise me for my looks, so I feel extremely blessed and very thankful." The fact that Stockton Police Department called Meeks "one of the most violent criminals in the area" doesn't seem to be an issue for White Cross. Well what does violence matter in the face of beauty? Convict is officially in.
