Sharing fashion’s sustainable stories
Sustainability has hit an inflection point in the global fashion market, with brand commitments and consumer interest towards sustainable fashion on the rise. How can fashion brands share stories of their sustainable efforts with consumers in ways that draw them into the journey?
Naia™ filament fulfills a demand for sustainable fashion
Where do you find inspiration? In nature or in natural elegance? Forests or urban jungles? Gin and tonics or gym aerobics?
You don’t have to pick a side. Today, mills are creating eco-conscious materials for every environment and every possibility with Naia™ from Eastman.
After all, fashion has always been about making a statement. Our clothes don’t just reflect what we believe but what we want to believe. And today’s fashion-conscience consumers want to believe in sustainable choices.
A sustainable revolution for fashion
As global apparel consumption continues to rise—an expected increase of 60% by 2030—that growth could have a dangerous impact on the environment. Currently, 87% of textiles are landfilled or incinerated and 10% of GHG emissions come from fashion industry. As Earth’s resources become more and more constrained, the global fashion industry is stepping up to reduce its carbon footprint. But bringing consumers along on the sustainability journey can be a challenge.
