Sustainable LabelsLucinda Winston
The issue on everyone’s mind lately is going green, and, as global warming becomes a larger issue, it’s important to try to cut down your waste and carbon footprint as much as possible. One of the ways you can do this is through buying sustainable clothing labels and making sure you use them in a manner that isn’t wasteful.
On the manufacturing side, we focus on managing out waste in a more effective manner, consuming less energy throughout our processes and disposing of chemicals in environmentally-friendly ways. We’ve invested time and money to make our side of the bargain greener, through using thinner material, streamlining our processes so that we use less energy, and focusing on internal recycling instead of disposing of our scraps in the garbage.
Here are a few things you can do to make sure you are reducing your carbon footprint, as well:
- If you remove old tags or name labels, toss them in with your textile recycling, instead of tossing them in the trash. Textile items are some of the most recyclable items, but also tend to be discarded in the trash the most often.
- Find creative uses for your extra custom clothing labels and name labels, or save them for future use. Often people will throw away the extras, and then order new ones when they need them the next year or in a few years.
- Order labels that are made from more natural fabrics, like woven labels or silk labels. This way, if they do get thrown out by accident, they will biodegrade naturally, instead of clogging landfills for decades to come.
