Adopt A Slow-Fashion Approach

Truthfully, the fashion and clothing industry in general has a lot to answer for regarding waste. Often it seems designed to be purposefully wasteful – always bringing out new clothes four times a year. If you want to run a different kind of clothing company and be more sustainable, you may want to try adopting a slow-fashion approach instead. This is becoming much more the norm now, and it’s something you will certainly want to think about if you are going to try and produce less waste.

Be Careful Who You Partner With

It’s no use trying to do all this if you are not also taking care with who you are working with. In fact, it’s hugely important to make sure that you are partnering up with other businesses only if they are also dedicated to being sustainable. It’s about thoroughly vetting any company that you are considering being close with, to make sure that you are on the same page. If you can do that, you will find that your company is so much more sustainable and that it has a much lower impact in general across the board.

Dispose Of Material Properly

You’ll find it’s also necessary to think about how you are disposing of your material, as this is a major issue when it comes to running a business that makes clothes. You will find you have lots of leftover fabric, and this really needs to be disposed of in as efficient a way as possible. That may be using a fabric shredder before recycling it, for instance. Just make sure you have some method in place that you are going to be able to make use of. That way, you’ll be much better off and so will the world.

Set Yourself Pledges

One way to show people that you are serious about your sustainability is to actually set a number of specific pledges around it. With these in place, you are holding yourself accountable publicly, and this can help to generate a feeling of trust in you and your brand. Of course, you will then need to continue to earn that trust by actually sticking to those pledges as best as you can. So decide on ones that are achievable but which will also make a genuine difference to the world.
