Organics & More manufacturers sustainable fashion Organic products with the greatest consideration for humans and the environment, minimizing environmental effects whenever possible. The ultimate goal is to create a system that functions without having a negative environmental impact.
NATURAL RESOURCES ARE SAVED BY SUSTAINABLE FASHION.
Fresh resources account for 97% of garment production, according to a 2015 survey, with recycled materials accounting for only 3%. This translates to a yearly resource intake of 98 million tonnes, which includes Synthetic materials made from the oil used in Synthetic fibers, cotton fertilizers, and a variety of chemicals used to color and polish textiles are all examples of chemicals utilized in the textile industry.
Recycled fibers have shown to be a far more environmentally friendly solution because they reduce the need for virgin resources while simultaneously solving the growing waste management problem. In comparison to the production of virgin nylon, every 10,000 tonnes of ECONYL® raw material used for our swimwear saves 70,000 barrels of oil and 57,100 tonnes of CO2.
SUSTAINABLE FASHION CARBON FOOTPRINT IS REDUCED
Every year, the global fashion industry emits a large number of greenhouse gases, contributing to global warming. These materials use significantly more energy during the manufacturing process than natural or recycled fibers.
Most Organic fabrics are biodegradable, including Organic cotton, linen, hemp, and TENCELTM (produced from sustainable wood pulp). These environmentally friendly materials are fantastic long-term solutions.
LESS WATER IS REQUIRED FOR SUSTAINABLE FASHION
The garment industry is significantly reliant on water. It is utilized in practically all of our clothing’s dying and finishing processes Cotton, for example, is extremely water-intensive, yet it is often grown in hot, arid locations where water is already in short supply.
On the other hand, Organic cotton consumes 91 percent less water than conventional cotton. However, Organic cotton accounts for less than 1% of global cotton production. This is largely owing to the higher expense of non-GMO seeds, which are often used and necessitate additional investments in materials and machinery, which farmers only utilize for Organically grown crops.
Linen, hemp, REFIBRATM, and recycled fibers like recycled cotton are examples of sustainable materials that require little to no water during the manufacturing process.
SUSTAINABLE FASHION SUPPORTS FAIRER AND SAFER WORKING CONDITIONS
Eco-ethical brands promote humane working conditions, health care, and fair compensation for their employees, which are often higher than the national average. In general, they demonstrate a greater goal of developing economic opportunities for those who are poor to alleviate poverty. We all want to feel good about our clothes, and part of that is knowing how they were manufactured. Don’t you think the well-being of the humans involved is just as important as the environment and animals?
PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT BENEFIT FROM SUSTAINABLE FASHION
Before they end up on our racks, fast fashion items often go through a lengthy and intensive chemical procedure. Around 8,000 different synthetic chemicals are used to dye, bleach, and wet treat textiles. Farmers are frequently sickened or killed by these poisons, and their children are born with terrible birth abnormalities.
Because our skin absorbs everything we put on it, including toxins from our clothing, some of these chemicals are also harmful to our health.
WE LEARN HOW TO LOVE OUR CLOTHES AGAIN THROUGH SUSTAINABLE FASHION
It’s all too easy to get caught up in the looks of a store-bought finished garment and forget that it has a history and a lifecycle. The truth is that we are separated because the industry encourages it. One that is healthy for the environment, animals, and people. We can choose to be part of the problem or part of the solution at the end of the day.
DIFFERENTIATE YOURSELF FROM THE REST OF THE PEOPLE
Organics & More is dedicated to ensuring the long-term viability of fashion. We aim to lessen resource pressure by using as many upcycled, Organic, and repurposed materials When it comes to fashion, as much as possible to restore the balance between people and the environment.
Clothing is a very accessible way for us all to impact change because it plays such a large role in our daily lives. Even if we can’t directly influence a fashion company’s operations, we can educate ourselves and raise awareness about who manufactured our garments, what they’re made of, and how their manufacturing affects people and the environment. To put it another way, choose to buy sustainably.
