Clothing Made For Life, Not Landfill
A staggering 85 percent of our collective apparel ends up in a landfill -- that's over 10.5 million tons of clothing, according to the popular second-hand store Value Village (source Huffington Post).
Mills can use up to 200 tons of water per ton of dyed fabric, which in turn only produces about 1400 pieces of clothing. Roughly 17% to 20% of industrial water pollution is owed to fabric dyes and treatments. An estimated 8,000 synthetic chemicals are used to bleach, treat, and brighten our clothes.
On-demand manufacturing significantly reduced the amount of fabric used (estimated to be around half).
