Earlier this year, the United Nations released the UN Sustainability Development Goals. It encompasses important standards by which industries and businesses should follow in order to keep our planet and people in a healthy and thriving balance of existence.
Sustainability has slowly started to weave its way into the fabric of the fashion industry, and in recent years, new and innovative materials, products and brands that value and centre around people and the planet have started to emerge in the mainstream. These new brands are tackling a range of issues, from the use of materials and the conditions of workers around the world, too shaping consumption patterns and behaviour here in the UK.
There is a growing social interest in the impact of everything we consume. People are asking about supply chains, they want to be educated about how their clothes – and everything they buy – gets to them. These conditions have meant that many businesses are now able to maintain truly sustainable and ethical practices. This is not without its challenges, though, as the costs of sustainable processes are still high, and there are always advancements and improvements that can be made.
