"For The Future is all about clothes you can #doyourthing in as well as doing your bit for the environment," reads the statement on the website.

Each piece in the clothing range is made from recycled materials without compromising on the trends you love

The 34 piece collection includes a range floral summer dresses, bodysuits, culottes and tops in sizes 6-24 and prices range from €10–€30.

Speaking about the new range, group founder Carol Kane said: “We are consistently listening to our customers and have been working on developing a recycled offering for some time.

“Boohoo acknowledges its responsibility to be a sustainable business and [the] ‘For the Future’ fashion range is the next step in that journey.”
