When we think of clothing, we often consider style, comfort, and fit. But how often do we think about the footprint our fashion choices leave on our planet? At Vustra, we believe that the fabrics you wear should not just elevate your style but also your conscience.
Why Sustainable Fashion is The Need of The Hour
Did you know that the fashion industry consumes about 93 billion cubic metres of water yearly, sufficient to sustain five million people? Moreover, it releases around half a million tons of microfibre into the oceans annually, equal to 3 million barrels of oil. Fast fashion has taken a toll on our environment, making sustainable choices more crucial than ever. When you choose sustainable fashion:
- You Reduce Carbon Footprint: Atypical t-shirt has an average carbon footprint of 7 kg CO2 equivalent? An eco-friendly version, made from recycled cotton in Vietnam, has a footprint of 5 kgCO2e, while a cotton t-shirt made in India records as much as 10 kgCO2e. Organic cotton produces 46% less greenhouse gas than non-organic.
- You Save Water: Conventionally grown cotton uses more pesticides and takes more water to grow. Switching to organic cotton farming uses 91% fresh water less than the conventional method.
