Climate change continues to affect our lives as well as the fate of all other species around the planet. After the industrial revolution, sustainability is an increasingly important issue for many people, especially in the business world. At Artmill, we think sustainability is the approach to creating long-term value; that is by taking into consideration how we operate in the ecological, social and economic environment. We believe that sustainability is built on the assumption that developing sustainable strategies will foster company longevity and provide a positive competitive advantage.
Teams at Artmill have been working on understanding water usage and carbon emissions in the complete life cycle of a textile product. During the research, they discovered how even minimal efforts made by any party involved in the lifecycle of a textile product produced, significant effects and benefits for the environment. Sustainable initiatives can be taken at any stage of the cycle from the farming of raw materials, fiber, fabric, and garment production, to raising awareness about garment use to the end consumer.
The teams at Artmill investigated further exploring sustainability, changes that can be brought by the use of recycled, organic, and synthetic cellulosic fibers. Biodegradable raw materials that complete the cradle-to-cradle life cycle can be used to minimize landfills. Affiliation with governing bodies that set organic standards such as GOTS needs to be made. Overall, we can separate and see each part of the cycle separately and develop a way to do it sustainably.
Artmill believes adapting to sustainable ways is the only way to move forward with the future of textiles and its relationship with the environment. Producing a product is one aspect but making it in a way that does not harm the environment and cause no consequences is another; always choose longevity.
