As we all know, the fashion industry has had a disastrous impact on the environment, from contributing mass amounts of waste to landfill and unsustainable production practices, to human rights injustices and being the 2nd largest CO2 emitting industry in the world. There’s no hiding from the facts and when it comes to garment manufacturing, the denim industry is putting the most strain on the environment.
Let's break it down
Producing one pair of jeans requires up to 6000 litres of water and emits around 11kg of CO2. As well as this, air, water and soil pollution is caused during the whole process from production to distribution causing even further unmeasurable damage that we don’t yet know the scale of.
How to make impact, even if it's small steps
By replacing only one regular pair of jeans with a sustainable pair on SCOON, you will not only save 5381 litres of water, but also 7.29kg of CO2 emissions. This means 92% of water and 69% of C02 emission are saved during the production process. Visit SCOON’s denim section to find a range of brands who care about the environment and are reducing their footprint through sustainable production methods for a better future.
