What is the first thing that enters your mind when you hear the term ‘sustainability’ in reference to clothing? Most likely your first thought is about fabric- those textiles that are made from natural or recyclable fibres.

Did you know that over 70% of the stuff in landfills today are composed of textile and garment waste? This means that the fashion industry is essentially the second largest polluter in the world… second only to oil derivative pollutants such as plastics! So one critical aspect of garment sustainability is about textiles. The more we use natural fibres such as cotton or rayon… the better- because their recycling characteristics are easier on the environment and, in comparison, produce less of those polluting gases.

Frederic (Rick) Bergman's career is in the Fashion Industry, including design, manufacturing, business, and teaching. He is a producer of unique products and bamboo farming.
