Sustainable Leap, founded by Thomas Kanze, is an in-the-lead blog where ethics meet aesthetics—a premier slow-fashion source where you get to lay your eyes on ethical and sustainable day-to-day fashion picks. Sustainable Leap is geared towards dealing with the issues that exist in the fashion industry and to offer you peace of mind, we make unsustainable brands step into the light so you could get your head around what you’re spending, and whether or not you’re making the right choice.
sustainability is the Only Way Out!
Let’s come clean—fast fashion is the second most contaminating industry on the planet, though falls behind the oil industry. Being a $2.5 trillion industry, can you imagine how catastrophic it is?
It’s killing our ethics and the source we primarily depend on—air, water, and trees. It’s hard to forget the tragedy that took place in 2013 when a factory collapsed in Bangladesh and killed 1,100 workers, to be exact, and more than 2,500 people were seriously wounded.
Research shows that the fashion industry is accountable for 10% of the carbon emission globally, and each year, up to 85% of the textiles get dumped.
All because of the fast fashion!
How We Are Dealing With the Issue
We, at Sustainable Leap, are aimed at keeping our mother earth as greener as it could get, and to pursue this vision, we suggest environmentally conscious people the most sustainable and ethical brands so not only could they look good but also feel good, hence the ethics.
By living a sustainable life, you could become a helping hand to reduce the amount of carbon footprint that is putting our planet at risk.
For our readers who have embraced to live an ethical and environmental-friendly life, we’ve curated the list of brands that make ethically and sustainably made products, namely denim (jeans), sneakers, activewear, pajamas, leggings, sandals, slippers, and more.
If you’ve got no bucks to invest in sustainable outfits, rest assured—there are other ways to help.
- Buy Less: Of course, you could buy less—or only to an extent that satisfies your need—but not more than that.
- Donate: If you are running a business or have gained the footing in that or you’ve got the financial support, you could always donate some amount to the people in need. Additionally, you can give away your clothes to someone in need.
But again, giving away outfits—to support sustainability—is only feasible if what you’re giving away has been sustainably made, or else textile, material, and other chemicals used in that clothing will impact our environment which we’ve already talked about.
Let’s Do It Together!
If we want to put an end to the eco-unfriendly system caused by cheap, unsustainable material, we have to do it together. If you’re serious about making the environment pollution free, you must think twice before buying a piece of cloth, be it a pair of jeans, sneakers, or other outfits. And, since we’ve reviewed some of the best sustainably-made products, why not give them a shot?
