Ungalli Clothing Co. + Local Collective

 Image result for divider for blog 


When we started Ungalli in 2014, it was simply a pipe dream. We wanted to save the world by making clothing from recycled water bottles. We got some weird looks about our idea to say the least. 

Fast forward 5 years later: our pipe dream is our full time job, we've won awards for Ungalli's sustainable initiatives, we ship worldwide, and have recycled almost 500 000 water bottles into clothing!

The only reason our pipe dream came to life was because of the support we received from our community in Thunder Bay. For every nonbeliever we met along the way, there were 5 of you ready and waiting to support us. You know who you are, and we thank you for ALWAYS having our backs. It means the world. 

With great excitement we are proud to introduce the logo for our new Thunder Bay Retail Store, opening March 1st, 2019.

Inspired by the support we've received while starting Ungalli, our store has been designed with space for other local entrepreneurs + creatives to sell their products. A one stop shop for the best of Thunder Bay.

1. Ungalli Clothing Co. 

2. Wild Badger

Here's to chasing your pipe dream!

Thank you for growing with us Thunder Bay,

  • How can you tell people that you’ve recycled all these bottles to make these clothes, when your company does not… The company you order your shirts from is the one who collects, recycles and manufactures them into clothing. Your a distributor of THEIR product. A middle man. All you do is sew your tags in and get them printed In Thunder Bay. On your web site you state “ WE ship world wide and have recycled almost 500,000 bottle into clothing” and “ WE recycle plastic bottles to manufacture our clothing, which otherwise would have been dumped into landfills. Maybe, by buying x amount of clothing from that company, you’ve helped to recycle 500,000 bottles. But, it wasn’t your company that did the work…and if your company recycles these bottles like you say..why, is there nowhere to donate them? I’m sure your companies employees or you two pretty ladies didn’t walk the streets of Thunder Bay to collect those 500,000 bottles. Anyone can buy shirts in bulk and put their tag and logo on it. You don’t do any of the work and claim all the fame. I won’t be buying your clothing.
