NRDC “Clean by Design Initiative”
Sustain Fashion: Drake Natural Feature #2
It takes as much as 200 tons of water to produce 1 ton of fabric. Less that 1% of the world’s water is drinkable and our demand is on track to double over the next 40 years. How can we as designers, manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, celebrities, media personnel, and consumers of fashion continue to ignore these facts??? Water waste, energy waste and insurmountable amounts of pollution continue to plague the industry and the people who love it.
My favorite thing about being an advocate for change and a sustainable fashion PR enthusiast is that I’m passionate about seeing improvements. My line of work focuses on ‘business to consumer’: telling the stories of ethical fashion brands and creating a paradigm shift of consumer choices in the market place. However when I see change starting to happen on a global scale, a ‘business to business’ model, I can’t help but to become overwhelming elated! The entire industry needs to change and that requires everyone … BIG and small to do their part in popularizing this voice of change.
The National Resource Defense Council has put in place this program called “Clean by Design”. Industry professionals such as Anna Wintour (Editor in Chief Vogue) and Stella McCartney (apparel designer) and the NRDC team briefly discuss the need for this program and value it will add to the future of fashion. What I love about this initiative is that it is very SIMPLE highlighting four major areas that designers, retailers and brands need to focus on: 1) Fibers/Dyes 2) Manufactures 3) Transportation 4) Consumer Care. The guidelines give step by step recommendations on how to commensurate with best practices.
But the question always is … How will we get people inspired to commit? The answer is and will continue to be … find creative ways to show that the industry is inefficient. We can’t expect everyone to have a moral compass but this is undoubtedly the future of fashion and we have to continue to educate about preventative and restorative practices. Inform designers about the “Clean by Design” program AND encourage consumers to shop locally. The interesting thing is that there are myriad ways in which to be more conscious. Different folks will find their starting intersection point and work from their. There is an option for everyone to shop and design more consciously no matter your ethnic background or your social economic status.
At the start of the day and in the closure of the evening … It’s about ACCOUNTABILITY!!!
