How To Be A Sustainable Clothing Brand

There are a few ways and reasons to start thinking how you can make your brand sustainable. 

First of all, it's just a good idea, right? Making clothing that won't end up in a landfill in the next year just seems like a good idea. Secondly, it's good marketing! Everyone likes another reason to buy your brand so give them one. Lastly, let's stop the clothing industry from being the #2 polluter of the earth,  right behind the oil industry. 

We use many sustainable fabrics at Clothier Design Source. But what does this mean? There are so many different categories that sustainability can fall into, here is our quick breakdown of what it means and how we utilize sustainable fabrics in all our designs.
