Worldwide textile industry
Fashion industry is known for its environmental impact, water pollution, the use of toxic chemicals and increasing levels of textile waste. When these chemical are released into our environment, it will affect the wildlife. For example to make male fish take on female characteristics - and can contaminate our bodies via food, air or water. It can pose risks to humans and children, a group particularly vulnerable to effects, particularly to our immune, reproductive or hormonal systems.
Even more, these chemicals in manufacturing results in water pollution that affects millions of people worldwide. Only in China, 1/3 of the population lacks access to clean drinking water and the textile industry is one of the biggest polluters.
Amazula cares for the Earth and therefore its philosophy is to minimize the global footprint that comes from waste and water.
All our garments and garment labels are produced locally using natural fabrics without the bleach. According to Epson survey, an average garment produced outside of UK travels 40,000km by air and creates CO2 emissions between 2.7-4.3kg. Producing fashion locally allows those numbers to drop tremendously and the carbon footprint would drop to 0.3kg.
We are continuously sourcing eco-friendly fabrics to become 100% organic and ecological. If you are a producer of ecological cotton please get in touch with us.
We believe in re-using and recycling fabrics where possible. We recycle and donate our fabrics as much as possible. Moreover, all our clothing labels and tags are made from recycled paper.
All our packaging is made of recycled paper, leaving it plastic free.
How can YOU help to reduce the environmental costs of fashion and improve your global footprint:
- Wash less: reduces the amount of water and energy used
- Wash cold: reduces the amount of energy used
- Mend when torn: increases the life cycle of your clothes
- Reuse or donate when worn: 90% of clothes in the fashion industry are thrown away before they are even close to being at the end of their usage life cycle so give away, don’t throw away.
Extending the average life of your clothes by just three months per item would lead to a 5-10%reduction of the carbon, water and waste footprints.
