Starting off with this amazing one-liner by Will.I.Am, “Waste isn’t waste, until we waste it”. The fashion industry has a huge negative impact on the environment and social impact around the world. Did you know that it takes 2,700 liters of water to make a single t-shirt? Fashion is one of the biggest contributors to pollution in the world. It produces more harmful gases than the international shipping and aviation industries together. We waste around 2,700 liters of water when we buy a new t-shirt.
Why do we buy a new t-shirt? Because it is torn? Old? or just not in trend anymore. Don’t you think we should save our mother earth and get into action! Or better, inaction. Yes! Efforts by an individual can make a difference! Pledge not to buy fast fashion or even if you buy, don’t just discard it. Remember the 3R’s? Reduce, Recycle, Reuse. So, get creative - find your old pair of clothing, start DIYing or get your favorite pair of jeans repaired with digitized embroidery because slow is the new cool! Indeed, a great opportunity to get creative with 80% of clothes that you never wear and you save the environment too. What a creative and a conscious approach! Let’s see how can an individual work upon this conscious approach with digitized embroidery.
Technology As A Key Factor For A Sustainable Fashion Future
Technology on a more personal scale has been able to advance sustainable fashion as well. Vintage and secondhand clothes play such an important role in the future of sustainable fashion because the more we are able to reuse and recycle, the less product is made. The Internet makes a sustainable life so easily accessible. With new websites and online brands and service providers on the rise, there are constantly new developments in consumer tech for eco-friendly living.
Overconsumption and the unavoidable disposal of unwanted clothing and accessories have become a global concern – and in many cases, these goods are unnecessarily thrown away, instead of being repaired or recycled. There are many ways to repair and recycle your old, torn or out of trend garments and revamp it the way you want. One of the ways to revamp your old garments is digitized embroidery. Digitized embroidery is the most convenient yet affordable option to refurbish yours out of trend clothing. Customization in digitized embroidery is also an option.
