Clothing: Sustainability is the avoidance of excess use of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance. But these days fulfilling our own needs has resulted to strike a balance between necessary and unnecessary needs for future generations.
Depriving them with what will be crucial in upcoming years. Our haphazard approach is destroying non renewable resources and we don’t have much time to come up with a plan.
Use of natural resources vary from minuscule to gigantic expanse such as from soil to grow food to extraction of metals. All of this is done in an unrestricted manner and excessive extent.
All nations are coming forward to limit their consumption of natural resources while trying to find a balance in global environment. Many agreements and treaties have been signed by diplomats of several nations to save natural global heritage of flora and fauna.
But to us ground communities what is the true definition of sustainability? How do we restrain excess use of natural resources? How do we plan on making our surroundings ecologically sustainable?
Well, certainly there are lot of ways to prevent waste of resources. Promoting use of renewable energy, using less plastic, recycling and improving recycling terms being few of them.
Nowadays few clothing brands have stepped forward to curb consumption of natural resources by promoting idea of sustainability.
Bolstering the objective of sustainable clothing is a step forward to assist in avoidance of depletion of regional and global resources. Well known brands like Clothing Zara, Mango, H&M are many of such brands to endorse sustainable clothing.
A Mediterranean brand, MANGO has never failed to keep with the sustainability motto which it has been carrying for couple of years now and made huge audiences acquainted with it.
Presenting upcycled collection of garments carried out regionally to global routes. MANGO presents a whole process where discarded and often used textiles and plastic waste are collected and grinded. From this grinded material new yarn is produced and thus the upcycled garments are made.
Every Mango store has a committed box in which shoppers are supposed to give away the used, discarded remnants of clothes from which new upcycled clothes are manufactured. The environmentally conscious collection is called as MANGO Committed. 79% of the garments and accessories are produced from environmental friendly fibres and processes.
The Womenswear collection has committed to make 100% cotton and 50% recycled polyester garment by 2050. The newly released sustainable denim collection is supposed to be green and this is a huge change to bring in about people. The denim collections are bad for the environment but mango made it possible to have eco friendly jeans in reasonable price.
