In this second post about sustainable clothing, I want to concentrate on the importance of water pollution and how the products we use affect the environment. I also want to talk about the importance of minority women being empowered through the use of social enterprises.
According to the World Bank, 17-20% of industrial water pollution comes from textile dyeing and treatment. Imagine how much we can achieve by using low impact and natural dyes. Not only can we significantly decrease water pollution but also our carbon footprint, allowing for a healthier planet.
The modern consumer is one that seeks to be more informed about the ways in which the products he/she consumes are manufactured, and how these affect the environment both in the long and the short run. This is why more and more brands are being more environmentally conscious.
During my research for this post, I came across Synergy. Synergy Organic Clothing creates fashion-forward clothing for women, by the use of social enterprises and by adhering to international anti-pollution regulations.
