Faqs

How can clothing be produced sustainably?

There are many factors that can prompt manufacturers to produce their clothing more sustainably.

For example, the choice of materials. Organic cotton requires far less water than traditional cotton. Recycled polyester reduces plastic waste. Recycling also saves resources, like the petroleum used to manufacture polyester.

Many auxiliary products and chemicals are used to manufacture clothing. The auxiliary products and dyes contained in the clothing are strictly regulated in the production of sustainable fashion.

In addition, manufacturers can also increase the sustainability of their clothing by increasing the processing quality. Clothing that’s better processed is more durable and can be used longer, which also saves resources.
