As a result of this year's events, we have decided to step up on the comfort front. An important aspect in the creation of the COMFORT collection was to serve the needs of the new situation in the best possible way, both in terms of materials and cutting lines. We have reached out to our 100% plush and recycled knitwear, which was a great success last year. Actress Bata Kt has added a face to our new collection, in whose life sustainability and environmental protection play a prominent role.
Bata Kata has been a member of the Comedy Company since 2015. Among other things, we can meet him as the main character of the performance entitled Anna Karenina or in the performance entitled The Father, presented in October 2020, on the side of András Kern. You can be familiar with the film screen as Éva Tinta, who, as a BKV inspector, twisted Áron's head in Gábor Reisz's Something Strange and Inexplicable film. Her husband, József Wunderlich, who is also the artist of the Comedy Theater, was born in the summer of 2018. Kata are passionate about animals, their adopted dog is called Prince.
When did environmental awareness become important to you? Is this related to motherhood?
Yes, before my baby girl was born, I started looking for environmentally conscious alternatives. I imagined the baby floating in a warm, clean amniotic fluid, then in the twilight, then coming into the world and being the first to come across the rubber glove, neon light, and crisp hospital sheet. I took a soft burgundy material with me to the hospital and it was screwed into it first. This was the first step that started a long process in me.
Being environmentally conscious is often difficult, how can you reconcile this with your hectic acting career? Can you give some tips to busy people?
Everything is just a habit. Smoking is also difficult. Many bad habits are just as tricky, yet we do. First of all, I think you need to find out what is being fed to you, how fast fashion clothes are made, or anything that is quick to consume, disposable, disposable, and when you’re pretty disgusted with all of this, and through yourself, you need to replace it. bad habits for good.
Where do you buy your clothes? What does conscious dressing mean to you?
Since I am an actor, my relationship with dressing is completely different, for example, I change clothes fifteen times during Anna Karenina's performance. Many times I put on a dress for as long as I go into the theater. I am very picky, I have pieces of clothes inherited from vintage shops, friends, or my mom. If I fall in love with something, I can wear it indefinitely. So I don't have a lot of clothes, I read recently about the term “capsule wardrobe”, the essence of which is that you have few clothes that can be combined well with each other, it developed on my own. I often buy my costumes, from the performances that are taken from the repertoire, as they are tailored for me, so I have a faux fur coat made by an applied artist, for example. These are preferred for special occasions, my wedding dress was also a costume piece adorned with hand-sewn beads from head to toe.
What do you do to avoid increasing your organic footprint with your meals? Where do you shop, what can you recommend if someone is starting a sustainable lifestyle now?
I buy dry food at a non-packaging store. There are also plenty of snacks in these stores, such as unpackaged chips or chocolate.I come with my own bottles and bags so I know in advance how much I want. I’m glad I found these stores so I can buy everything else, vegetables, fruits, dairy products, meat in the market where I also use my own bags and boxes. I don’t have to go to the unpacked stores often, as everything I buy there for a long time stops to be marketed more often, and I’m glad the markets are kid-friendly. It is often combined with a dog walk, making it a more cozy family program than rushing through a mall.
Do you have a sustainable routine for beauty care?
I try to avoid plastic packaging, preferring products packaged in glass or metal. For example, I can take shampoo and conditioner home without packaging. Anyway, you can refill your own branded products in the store further west, for example, in DM, I look forward to it coming to us.
What does a green home mean to you, how do you try to do it?
It means cleanliness. Order, lots of plants, few old but well-kept objects and furniture, few but well-chosen multifunctional modern gadgets. A loving family who depend not on their objects but on each other.
