Now that people all over the world understand that further deterioration of the Earth’s environment can have catastrophic consequences, conscious efforts are being made to sustain the Earth’s environment.
Right from individuals to communities and businesses, all are proactively doing their bit to save the planet and switching to a more sustainable lifestyle. Businesses too are contributing to this effort and adopting sustainable processes to reduce their carbon foot print. In the garments’ industry too many manufacturers have adopted sustainable practices in their process flow and are offering customers sustainably made products of the highest quality. Right from their labels to the packaging material, everything these brands use is biodegradable as well as made from re-cycled products.
Xpresa Labels is one such business entity that has helped many garment manufacturers in their efforts of making their brand sustainable by offering a host of options in eco-friendly labels. Xpresa Labels makes the best quality custom woven labels, adhesive labels, printed labels and more, which brands can proudly showcase with their products.
While Xpresa Labels is there to help you with eco-friendly labels, here are the other things that you can do to make a sustainable fashion brand.
Build an environment friendly facility:
For a sustainable fashion brand it is important to ensure that everything, right from the facility to the process has the least impact on the environment. To ensure this you must try to restore and build your manufacturing unit on some damaged land which is also free from critical species. Alongside, the manufacturing facilities should also meet the highest standards in terms of emissions as well as energy consumption so as to minimize wastage in any form. Moreover, you should also try to ensure that drainage channels have a proper catchment system so that the microfibers do not mix with and pollute the waterways.
Be careful with the dyes and detergents:
In the garment industry, dyes, bleaching agents and cleaning agents have an important role to play as they are used in large quantities. And it is extremely important to select them with great care so they do not pollute the surrounding water bodies. Use of natural vegetable based dyes and other mild cleansing agents is as such a must if you want to build a sustainable fashion brand.
Source raw materials very carefully:
In the garments’ industry fabrics of various kinds make up a chunk of the raw materials and sourcing the right kind of raw materials is often the biggest challenge to address. You must try to source fabrics locally in order to cut down on the burning of fossil fuels that goes in the transportation. Additionally, you must avoid the use of fabrics, the manufacturing of which takes a toll on the environment. Also, the raw materials you source should be consciously sourced to avoid wastage and the goods you produce should be of the highest quality so they last long and can be recycled at the end of their life-cycle.
Have a robust waste management system in place:
For a fashion brand to be truly sustainable it is also very important to ensure that the manufacturing unit does not add on to the already burgeoning problem of waste management. To ensure this, you must have measures in place to reduce mistakes and prevent wastage of fabric, use sustainable materials for packaging as well as have a repair and upcycling program in place to close the loop of the garment’s lifecycle.
Xpresa Labels, which is highly trusted by clients for their sustainably made adhesive labels, woven labels, printed labels and other such bespoke labels, is always willing to work with and share their knowledge of fabrics with fashion brands to create such environment friendly products.
