Lowering our impact
But, we do consider ourselves an eco friendly clothing company because we reduce our negative impact on the environment every step of the way. One great example of this is that our clothing made in Peru is produced in partnership with factories that have made a commitment to ZERO WASTE. Our fabric scraps from cutting are bundled and then re-purposed into mops, rags, and mattress fillers, or recycled into new fibers, ensuring a circular supply chain that keeps waste out of landfills.
In terms of environmental impact, we feel it’s important to also consider what we can do as individuals. Recycling at home is something everyone should be doing, but it turns out that a lot of us may be doing it wrong. Luckily, once you know what to do, it’s not hard to get it right.
THE NEXT STEPS
And while recycling is a great way to lower your carbon footprint and reduce your household waste, it’s not the only method. Another easy way to curb waste is to avoid using or purchasing single-use items such as plastic bottles or grocery bags. Invest in reusable drinkware and always bring your own bags to the grocery store or farmer’s market. Try shopping at a package free grocery store. If there is one in your town, make the extra effort - you won’t be disappointed. Feel free to search here to find one near you. It’s often more cost effective and creates significantly less waste.
