Nearly three years ago, I made a commitment to buy [url=http://www.jollyhers.com/]kids clothing free shipping[/url] at Jollyhers but nothing new. What started as a practical challenge to stop over-consuming and over-spending became a more philosophical one. I began to ask more questions about where my clothing came from, what it was made of, and who made it. |
I did what I know how to do best: research and analyze data on the issue, and then make decisions and tell stories based on that data. In my research on the global garment industry, supply chains, and sustainability trends, I began hearing more about this curious concept of upcycling.
Upcycling is the process of creating something new and better from old items.
In contrast to reusing or recycling, upcycling uses existing materials to improve upon the original ones. The process requires a considerable amount of creativity and vision, as well as a foundation of thriftiness and environmental consciousness. The end result is typically a product or item that is one-of-a-kind, handmade, and sustainable. For instance, reusing or recycling worn T-shirts could mean that you use them as cleaning rags; upcycling could mean that you recreate the shirts into a handmade, unique braided rug.
Upcycling is one of the most innovative ways to transform the fashion industry for three reasons:
It’s sustainable. Upcycling reduces clothing and textile waste by reusing deadstock or gently used fabric to create new garments and products. Making a single cotton T-shirt requires over 700 gallons of water, whereas using a pre-existing T-shirt to make something new requires nearly no water. In addition, upcycling can divert some of the 85% of textile waste that ends up in landfills.
It’s cost-effective. Similar to reducing waste, upcycling can be less expensive since used or pre-existing materials are typically a fraction of the cost of newly-made materials and textiles.
It’s creative. Upcycling requires creativity to envision the potential of existing materials to create something new and beautiful.
Below are a few innovative, socially- and environmentally-responsible upcycled fashion and accessories companies that are transforming the industry stitch by stitch. By using deadstock or leftover materials and/or employing undeserved workers, they are truly fashioning a better world.
