Each of our meditative stitches is grateful for your contribution to making the earth an equitable, inclusive, and sustainable place to live in.
With this time-honored, trend-less piece,
- You are bringing access to clean drinking water to a family in a developing country by not contributing to contamination by dyes or waste in the bleaching process. Currently, 1/5th of water pollution comes from textile treatment and dying.
- You are empowering a woman maker with fair and meaningful employment. Bringing economic independence, and agency to her life, with wholesome sustainability to the family.
- You are helping in reducing the burden on landfills from overflowing textile wastes. About 3/5th of the clothing produced every year ends up in landfills within a year of being made.
- You are reducing your carbon footprint, using the timeless, trendless piece as a part of your style. 400% of the carbon emissions can be reduced by wearing a garment 50 times, instead of just 5.
- You are saving the lives of marine animals. It has been estimated that around 100,000 of those are killed every year with wastes from microfibers.
