The global fashion industry is unsustainable
and we are here to change it
The apparel industry alone accounts for 6.7% of global greenhouse gas emissions, equivalent to about 3.3 billion metric tons of CO2-eq.
If a business-as-usual scenario prevails, the apparel industry’s impact will steadily rise over the next 15 years, reaching a projected 49% increase in climate change impact by 2030.
A contributor to the climate change problem
More than 50% of the greenhouse gas emissions come from 3 stages - Fibre Production, Yarn Preparation and Dyeing & Finishing.
The climate change impact estimates over time across the three main life cycle stages show an upward trend.
Carefully selected materials and partners with their environmental impact in mind
At merchandise.blue, we make merchandise for you using a blend of sustainable fabrics. Here are a few examples of some of the environmentally progressive fabrics that we use in our products. Whether it is organic cotton, recycled polyester, or seaweed; you can feel good about how your product is made, and what it is made with!
Recycled polyester is made from recycled materials (PET and polyester fabrics). By choosing recycled polyester, we’re able to deliver the same technical performance in fibers with a smaller environmental footprint.
Recycled cotton fabrics can be made from old garment or textile leftovers. It reduces the use of virgin cotton and thus leads to significant reduction in water, carbon dioxide and other impacts from cotton farming.
RECYCLED FISHING NETS
Fishing nets recovered from the seas can be recycled into nylon yarn. Recycled nylon also reduces energy and water consumption as it requires half of the industrial processes compared to conventional chemical processes.
Sustainably harvested seaweed and wood are used to create a completely biodegradable fibre. The antioxidants and other beneficial elements in the fibre interacts with the skin to provide a greater sense of wellbeing.
Organic cotton is grown using responsible methods and materials with low impact on the environment. It saves water and does not use pesticides, insecticides or herbicides that are harmful to the farmers and us the consumers.
Lyocell is one of the greatest fibres. It is 100% biodegradable and comes from eucalyptus trees, which are fast-growing, require no pesticides or insecticides, and need one-fifth of the land to make the same amount of fabric as cotton.
And, here are some of the official quality and ecological responsibility certifications that awarded to the fabrics and the partner facilities that merchandise.blue works with.
