How Can Fashion Industry Be More Sustainable?
The fashion industry is often under fire for its constant growth in power consumption and increased wastage of textiles. But the future of fashion doesn’t have to be this dark. Here are actions that the fashion industry can take:
Producing Lesser Clothing Items
The fashion industry produces one too many products that can’t always be sold; this is typically where the problem starts. Fashion houses and designers need to reduce the number of items they produce with each collection. Production houses should also be moved to where brands find their target audience to enhance work quality and save on shipping costs.
Fashion repeats itself. Time and again, styles and garments come back, and they’re almost always inspired by fashion that consumers have already witnessed before. Designers should promote deconstructing, reusing, and recycling material in the form of remnants and offcuts from other fashion houses to incorporate within their own.
Repurposing the older stock and experimenting with newer unconventional materials could indeed lead to the creation of something new.
Practicing Sustainability at Lefty Production Co.
At Lefty Production Co., we make conscious efforts to reduce the environmental footprint of the fashion industry. For this reason, we source organic hemp, bamboo, cotton, and recycled materials. We utilize the virtual 3D sampling technology to reduce waste throughout the manufacturing process. Moreover, using automated laser cutters and cutouts has allowed us to eliminate print paper patterns from the cycle and account for lesser fabric consumption.
Last but not least, the design, development, and production unit for brands and designers in Los Angeles, California, ensure a safe, clean, and ethical work environment for its workers. For example, they only utilize LED lights in their factory, which use 75 percent less energy and last 25 times longer than traditional bulbs.
