Sustainability — a buzz word that, over the past few years, has increasingly gained attention in the fashion industry. It’s estimated that 13 million tons of textile waste ends up in landfills or is burned. (Burned!) On average, Americans throw away around 82 pounds of clothing each year. At Everyday Sabbatical, we believe in educating our customers, transparency, and walking the talk with what we’re actually doing – not greenwashing.
As Mini mentioned, over the past few months, we’ve been working to improve our impact on the environment by keeping our fabric waste and trying to figure out how to use the excess material effectively. We’ve also worked to improve our mailers because we know changes can be made to minimize our environmental impact. That’s why this summer we assessed the ecological impact of Everyday Sabbatical’s 2020 summer clothing order. Our goal? Address and explore solutions to reduce our fabric and plastic waste problem.
