There is no denying that more and more of us have a growing concern for the planet and the damage we are causing to it. When it comes to purchasing customised clothing there are many options available that help to minimise the contribution to global warming. Let’s take a look at some of them . . .
Garments go on a long journey from the cotton fields right through to the finished customised product. Many of the stages a product goes through will have some environmental impact, you can minimise that impact by carefully choosing the products and services you purchase.
Across the industry, there are a number of accreditations that many suppliers are awarded. These include Fairtrade, WRAP, Sedex, Fair Wear, Peta Vegan Approved and many others.
Organic Customised Garments
If you’d looked only a couple of years ago you’d hard been hard pushed to find a good choice of organic clothing. But now more and more producers are starting to offer organic options and for some of them, this has become their primary focus.
Brands such as STANLEY/STELLA, écologie by AWDis and Babybugz now have complete sustainable ranges, in some cases using 100% organic cotton.
Recycled Customised Clothing
Another recent trend is the introduction of clothing made from recycled materials. Several suppliers are using items such as plastic bottles which have been collected from recycling centres and made into a thread. This is then used to manufacture lots of different garments including headwear and bags.
Carbon Neutral Garment Decorations
When it comes to customisation, some of our processes utilise accredited methods. Our DTG printer for example uses a waterless NeoPigmentTM print process that is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified and Global Organic Textiles (GOTS-3V) certified.
The roof of our factory in Ludlow is adorned with solar panels, meaning that some of our processes are powered by green energy.
It’s a simple fact that no manufacturing process comes without issues, whether it be power consumption, water usage, transportation etc. Because of this, in addition to making continuous sustainability improvements, we offset our companies carbon emissions each year by the planting of trees.
