Fashion and sustainability in 2020
It’s been a while since I last shared an article here on the blog. After an emotionally intensive 2019 ”, in 2020 I decided to start the year with more calm and serenity. But now I’m back and after my collaboration with the FRAENCK (a sustainable brand), I decided to talk about fashion and sustainability in 2020.
Production is sustainable when it meets social, economic and environmental criteria. Sustainable fashion must fundamentally ensure that it has a low environmental impact, both in production and in disposal; be economically and socially responsible for the entire product cycle: in creation, production, sale, after-sales and disposal.
In 2020 sustainability, conscious consumption, socio-environmental responsibility and minimalism will happily become a global trend. With each passing day, new levels of sustainable development on industrial production in the fashion market have been achieved and more and more brands are adopting this model of production.
FRAENCK is a brand that manufactures bags (like this one) and accessories with sustainable materials (click here to find out more). All material used for the production of FRAENCK’s bags are recyclable: “we give a second life to the remains of candle makers and residual lots of artificial leather, super nice materials that would otherwise end up in the trash”.
FRAENCK’s bags are all manufactured here in Holland, in the city of Arhnem. Where production is done in good condition and workers have a salary according to the market. Notwithstanding, FRAENCK gives employment opportunities to people who have little chance of getting a job in the labor market: “we believe in an inclusive world. Therefore, our sustainable collection is made by people far from the labor market ”.
As a blogger, it is extremely pleasant to work with sustainable brands. In 2020 it is my goal to do it more and more and educate myself in this subject. It is a way of indirectly making a small contribution to a slightly better world, because in fact sustainability should be embraced by everyone.
I hope you enjoyed the article and do not forget to dream and always fight for the realization of your dreams.
