Let’s Talk About Sustainability? – Materials and Fibres
Maria Galvão de Sousa talks about sustainability through The Feeting Room
"We have to understand the full scope of the supply chain"
"when we talk about fashion sustainability, it’s still a distant concept because it’s something that we do not experience the impact daily."
It’s good that brands start having this notion and start looking for more sustainable options.
"Let’s take in consideration that organic cotton is not always the best option, as some brands promote since to produce the same amount of organic cotton we need twice the amount of resource (water, land, petrol). Sometimes, recycled plastic and polyester are a more sustainable option, since we’re using an already existing material to create another. Avoiding waste."
"Maria Maleta is one of the best study cases of a brand concerned with sustainability."
