In a generation that is aware of its carbon footprint more than ever before, it is unsurprising that in the last few years we have seen the rise of sustainable clothing, or as it has been dubbed, eco fashion. From high end, luxury brands to budget brands, more and more are getting involved.
The aim is simple:
- To use as many sustainable materials as possible, that may be by using organic or recycled materials.
- To keep the process of making the clothing friendly on the environment, for example by minimising water use or using fewer/no chemicals.
Eco fashion doesn’t only concern the end product either. It also ensures safe working environments, fair wages and investment into local communities along the whole process of not only the making, but the sourcing of the product too.
AWDis, one of the top brands at Workwear Express, have recently launched their own range of sustainable clothing. And we are delighted to say that you can find the Ecologie range at Workwear Express! The range will be expanding too in the coming months so make sure you keep an eye out on our social media channels for updates.
“Style with a conscience”, AWDis are aiming to build a better future for our planet by combining fashion with sustainability. The new Ecologie range includes t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies which are all created from ecologically friendly cotton.
Simple yet revolutionary, AWDis gather cotton waste from their cutting rooms and instead of sending it to a landfill site, it is sorted by colour, shredded down and mixed with polyester. It is then spun into yarn, ready to become part of the Ecologie range.
Not only does this process use less materials and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill sites thanks to recycling, it is also a completely dry process as the use of water or chemicals is not necessary. It also reduces CO2 emissions as there won’t be the need to grow and process as much new cotton.
Ecologie by AWDis really is an incredible range that is designed to not only make you look good, but also make you feel good about how the products are made and the positive changes you are influencing and encouraging.
