Truth & All
Founder Gemma started eco-friendly eye-wear brand because she is passionate about solving plastic pollution and over-consumption of it. While recycling plastic is one of the solutions, she believes in getting to the root of the problem - to reduce plastic consumption – hence, the creation of 100% biodegradable and 100% recyclable eyewear. Truth & All also gives part of the profits to projects that look to create a more sustainable world, changing the planet, one eyewear at a time.
Self-confessed eco-junkie Jennifer’s motto in life is “to live with less and make changes for good”. After moving to Singapore from Australia in 2017, the excessive plastic waste and other litter and witnessing the devastating impacts on the oceans and coastal areas prompted her to do something about the situation. A chance meeting with the founder and CEO of Indosole, thrusted Jennifer into the sustainability business and brought the brand to Singapore. The slippers made from repurposed tyres has since been introduced to Singapore and reduced the burden on the landfills in Indonesia.
