Definition of Sustainability
Sustainability is a way of operating that focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future. Sustainability is measured along three principles: the economy, society, and the environment. Sustainable apparel is made in a way that does no further damage to the environment or the communities responsible for manufacturing that apparel. This could include organic or recycled materials, local sourcing, or health, safety, and wage protections for workers.
