Why is important to use sustainable garments

Creating sustainable garments is an important step in protecting the environment and promoting ethical production practices. Here are a few key steps to consider when creating sustainable garments

Sustainable fashion takes into account the entire supply chain and life cycle of a garment, from where and how it is made to when it ends up in our landfills. It is important for consumers to think about how their purchase affects the environment, the lifecycle of their garment, and how to invest in clothes that last longer

Key steps for creating sustainable garments

  1. Use sustainable materials: Look for materials that are grown or produced using sustainable methods. Examples include organic cotton, linen, and hemp. Avoid materials that are known to be harmful to the environment, such as synthetic fibers and leather. You can find out of our sustainable garments here

  2. Choose environmentally friendly production methods: Consider the        entire lifecycle of the garment, from raw materials to disposal. Look for production methods that use less water and energy, generate less waste, and emit fewer pollutants.
  3. Consider the people who make your clothes: Make sure that the workers who produce your garments are paid fair wages and working in safe and healthy conditions. In Lima we make sure we collaborate with Balinese woman tailors to empower them and their businesses. 

  4. Be transparent: Be open and transparent about your production practices and the materials you use.

  5. Use digital marketing: Use digital marketing to reach a wider audience and connect with potential customers.

  6. Continuously improve: Continuously look for ways to improve the sustainability of your garments and production methods.

By following these steps, you can create sustainable garments that are good for the environment, good for the workers who produce them, and good for the people who wear them. It's important to remember that sustainability is a journey, not a destination, and to strive for continuous improvement.
