Have you guys heard of the brand Reformation? I am obsessed! Not only because I think their pieces are beautiful, but also because of what they stand for. Reformation is all about sustainability.
Did you know that fashion is the third most polluting industry in the world? Making fabrics takes water, energy, chemicals and other resources that we don’t even think about which results in climate change. To make one pair of denim jeans, it takes 1,000 gallons of water and most of the time, that polluted water is sent right back into our rivers, lakes and oceans.
Americans throw away 14 million tons of textiles per year! So, after we pollute the earth to make the textiles we want, we generally don’t even use them for over a year. Over 99% of the clothing thrown away in the US could be reused, but 85% of it ends up in landfills instead!
Reformation is making it their purpose to be more sustainably responsible to minimize the impact of fashion on our environment. This is why all Reformation apparel is made in their sustainable factory in Los Angeles. They even give daily tours of their facilities for people who are interested in seeing the processes of how Reformation minimizes their waste, water and energy footprint.
