Other Ways to Shop Sustainably
Biodegradable, or compostable, fabrics allow for decomposition to happen naturally via microorganisms, such as bacteria or fungi. By engaging in these natural processes, biodegradable fabrics do not contribute to landfill waste or methane emissions, while allowing valuable nutrients to return to the environment.
Deadstock Fabric is surplus fabric from a fabric mill’s production run that is unwanted or not needed by the designer or brand that commissioned it. Purchasing deadstock fabric prevents usable fabric from being sent to landfills, making it a more sustainable option than purchasing newly produced fabric.
