What is the meaning of sustainability and what does it have to do with fashion?
Being sustainable simply means you are fulfilling your needs in an ethically responsible way that won't negatively affect the earth and future generations. Now being sustainable in the fashion industry means as a producer it is our responsibility to make products from sustainable materials, meaning it is ethically made and environmentally friendly. With 85% of ALL textiles end up in landfills every year, STARSTITCH is dedicated to reducing this number by only using secondhand and biodegradable products down from the bag to the packaging.
Let's hear from officials about Sustainability in Fashion
"Sustainability refers to creating and consuming clothes in a “sustained” way that protects the environment and those producing the clothes"
"With secondhand and vintage now increasingly accessible consider buying pre-loved items when looking to add to your wardrobe. Not only will you extend the life of these garments and reduce the environmental impact of your wardrobe as a result, you can also find one-of-a-kind pieces that no one else will own"
"53 million metric tons of discarded clothing are incinerated or go to landfills each year. If sent to a landfill, clothes made from natural fabrics like cotton and linen may degrade in weeks to months, but synthetic fabrics can take up to 200 years to break down. And as they do, they produce methane, a powerful global warming greenhouse gas."
STARSTITCH encourages consumers like you to shop ethically from brands that uphold and support our goal for sustainability in the fashion industry.
