How and Why Clothing Production Companies Should Be More Sustainable?
Updated: Apr 6
The world as we know it is constantly changing, and that does not mean it’s changing for the better.
Throughout the last couple of decades, various industries have exploited the world in a rather unsustainable manner and today, there is an increasing demand to reverse the trend and hopefully, heal the damage that has been caused.
Fortunately, as the public opinion turned towards demanding more sustainable practices, the fashion industry managed to accommodate these desires and even though there is much to do, we can implement significantly more sustainable measures to assist the healing process - something Jack Angel is heavily invested in.
To this end, we wanted to share how we ensure our products and production methods became as sustainable as they are today, and detail some of the more critical elements of this entire process as we believe that these practices are to yield more favorable results if applied on a broader basis.
3 Tips on How Clothing Production Companies Can Be More Sustainable
From introducing sustainable and rather novel materials into the industry and to revamping how manufacturers produce what they produce, here are three critical tips Jacky Angel follows - and urges all industry stakeholders to follow too.
Use Sustainable Materials: Incorporating sustainable materials into the production process is one of the most effective ways for clothing production companies to become more sustainable - if not the single best way there is. This includes using recycled materials such as organic cotton, bamboo and hemp. Additionally, using natural dyes, such as plant-based dyes, can help reduce the environmental impact of clothing production. As Jacky Angel, we take pride in our production practices and how we merge them with fashion trends. For example, you can check out our article detailing how we are ahead of the game when it comes to linen shirts - one of the most sustainable materials out there!
Reduce Waste: Reducing waste in the production process can also help make clothing production more sustainable. This includes minimizing the use of paper and water in the production process and recycling any materials that can be reused or repurposed. Additionally, working with suppliers who use sustainable practices can help reduce waste and lead to a more sustainable approach to clothing production.
Invest in Innovative Technologies: Finally, investing in innovative technologies can help clothing production companies reduce their environmental footprint and become more sustainable. This could include developing new processes that use less water or fewer chemicals during the production process or calculating daily carbon footprint of everyday practices. Investing in these technologies can help clothing production companies become more efficient and sustainable.
This list is far from being exhaustive, and as the demand for more sustainable practices increase, and as more accepted methods become available, it will be up to industry stakeholders to implement these new developments and ensure the environment can stay as unharmed as possible while producing the goods our communities need.

Q: Why is sustainability important in clothing production?
