Sustainable Clothing: Creating an Environmentally Friendly Wardrobe
In an era where fast fashion dominates the industry, it's more important than ever to consider the environmental impact of our clothing choices. At The 138 Way, we believe in the power of sustainable clothing and its potential to create a kinder, more sustainable future. In this blog post, we'll guide you through understanding sustainable materials, finding sustainable clothing sources, and reducing waste through sustainable clothing.
Understanding Sustainable Materials
Sustainable materials are the cornerstone of environmentally friendly clothing. These materials are produced with minimal impact on the environment, often using organic or recycled fibers. At The 138 Way, we primarily use GOTS-Certified Organic Cotton and PETA-Approved Vegan Cotton. We also utilize recycled polyester (rPet) for the inner fleece of our hoodies and sweatshirts, and our tote bags are made from Recycled Post-Consumer Cotton and Regenerated Cotton from our partners' fabric excess.
Finding Sustainable Clothing Sources
Not all clothing brands prioritize sustainability, but it's becoming easier to find those that do. Brands like The 138 Way are committed to sustainable practices, from the materials we use to our manufacturing processes. We work only with partners who share our commitment to sustainability and fair trade policies. When looking for sustainable clothing sources, look for brands that are transparent about their materials and manufacturing processes.
Finding Affordable Sustainable Clothing
Sustainable clothing doesn't have to break the bank. While it's true that sustainable materials can be more expensive due to the cost of ethical labor and eco-friendly practices, there are affordable options available. At The 138 Way, we offer sustainable clothing options under AED 120, making it easier for everyone to make environmentally friendly choices.
Sustainable Materials for Clothing
When it comes to sustainable materials for clothing, organic cotton is a popular choice. It's grown without harmful chemicals, making it better for the environment and the people who work in the fields. Recycled materials are another great option. For example, recycled polyester uses less water and energy to produce than virgin polyester and helps keep plastic bottles out of landfills.
Reducing Waste Through Sustainable Clothing
Sustainable clothing can significantly reduce waste. By choosing high-quality, durable pieces, you can reduce the need for fast fashion that often ends up in landfills. At The 138 Way, we produce in limited batches to avoid overstocking and reduce waste. We also offset carbon emissions from every order, ensuring all deliveries are carbon-neutral.
