Why sustainable clothing?
The fashion industry is responsible for major environmental damage, from water pollution to excessive waste. Fast fashion is a major contributor to these problems. Clothing is produced quickly and cheaply to meet consumer demand.
The clothing industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. According to the United Nations, the fashion industry is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than aviation and shipping industries combined. The massive production, use and disposal of clothes leads to CO2 emissions, plastics pollution and land and water pollution.
For instance, to dye fabrics, clothing factories use chemicals that pollute ambient water. Synthetic clothing causes microplastic pollution. And the landfill of unusable discarded clothes is growing. Everyone knows something has to change. By consciously choosing healthier clothes, you can contribute.
How our scarves can be a sustainable choice
Scarves can easily transform your outfit. So you don’t have to buy new clothes as often. They also last a long time and garments are less likely to need replacing. And when they are also made in a responsible way, you are doubly well off.
That way, small changes in your wardrobe can contribute to a better environment. So consciously choose authentic scarves like those from statjebeeldig. Because each piece is unique and tells a story, making you stand out from the crowd.
