Apparel and fashion are an important part of our daily lives. However, a WEF report has revealed it is the world’s second largest polluter of water.
Additionally, a Carbon Trust report showed the world’s most worn fabric, cotton, is heavily linked with freshwater depletion. Polyester, another popular fabric, isn’t even biodegradable. It is apparent that the current landscape for apparel is wasteful and taxing on natural resources.
Therefore, it’s easy to understand why millennials have demanded change regarding sustainable apparel. Fortunately, there are viable alternatives on offer. These include fabrics made from unlikely materials such as recycled bottles, hemp, banana and even spoiled milk. It’s clear then, sustainable apparel will become a key industry in the future.
Because of this, businesses may want to align themselves early with quality suppliers or risk being left behind. The Buckner Group is investigating sustainable apparel options for our customers which include the adoption of circular economy principles.
