Die Pläne der EU im Green Deal – und wie können sie umgesetzt werden
Bis 2030 sind die Textilerzeugnisse auf dem EU-Markt langlebig und recyclingfähig, bestehen größtenteils aus Recyclingfasern, enthalten keine gefährlichen Stoffe und werden unter Einhaltung der sozialen Rechte und im Sinne des Umweltschutzes hergestellt.
Closing the loop
The future of sustainable industry lies in the circular economy. This also applies to the textile and clothing industry. It is understood to mean the reuse of resources that have already been used.
And yet we are only at the beginning of a development journey that is far from complete until this concept can actually be implemented.
Technolgization, the stepchild of the apparel industry?
In the production of garments still depends on each individual handle. Especially pants are still handmade. The reason? Cheap wages in countries in the Global South and the convenient excuse that robots can't handle the material. The solution? Automation through technologization of the industry.
It's time to take responsibility
The sustainability scene in our industry is growing every day. That is fundamentally good! It's good that many people and many entrepreneurs recognize that the apparel industry worldwide is in a dead end. And it's good that the number of people thinking about how to make it better is growing every day. It's also good that an increasing number of bloggers, journalists and filmmakers are making the ills of our industry an issue.
Can sustainability also be cheap?
"I'll buy four pieces of clothing for this price," "I'll also get sustainability certificates there," "You and your sustainability are all well and good, but no one can afford that. Not a week goes by that I don't receive such or similar comments in social media. Sustainability has its price, but does it have to be that way?
