Supporting Sustainable Fashion with Everviolet

At the intersection of Fashion Revolution Week  (April 15-24) and Earth Day (April 22) lies an opportunity for us to reflect on our roles as consumers and advocates for a more sustainable future. At Everviolet, sustainability isn't just a buzzword – it's a guiding principle woven into every aspect of our garment manufacturing and wellness community. As we celebrate a decade of Fashion Revolution and unite in the fight against climate change, let's explore practical steps to support responsible and earth-friendly fashion with Everviolet.

Get Educated about Sustainable Fashion

In 2022, the United Nations named the fashion industry the 2nd most polluting of all industries in the world, resulting in 8% of all carbon emissions and 20% of all global wastewater. That's why it's important to learn about the environmental and social impacts of brands we support. Understand the importance of transparency, ethical manufacturing and responsible sourcing of materials so that we can make informed choices as a conscious consumer.

Choose Quality Over Quantity

The majority of fashion pieces, especially fast fashion, ends up in landfills. When we opt for timeless pieces that are well-made and built to last, we minimize our participation in this pollution. Everviolet's commitment to producing garments in small batches ensures that each item is crafted with care and attention to detail and also reduces waste and our environmental footprint.

Support Responsible Businesses 

It's expensive to be a responsible business. Top notch vendors and manufacturing partners come with a price. But when we purchase from brands like Everviolet that prioritize sustainability and transparency, we're not only investing in quality products but also supporting ethical practices that benefit both people and the planet. Our choices as a consumer have the power to drive positive change within the fashion industry. 

Advocate for Transparency

Demand transparency from fashion brands regarding supply chain, production processes and environmental impact. By holding brands accountable and asking the right questions, we can encourage greater accountability and promote sustainable practices throughout the industry.

Extend the Lifespan of Your Wardrobe

Take care of our clothing to prolong its lifespan. Follow care instructions, mend any damages and consider repurposing or upcycling garments to give them new life. By embracing a mindset of mindful consumption, we reduce the need for constant buying and minimize waste.

Embrace Slow Fashion Principles

Slow fashion emphasizes quality, durability and ethical manufacturing practices. By embracing Everviolet's ethos of producing garments in small quantities with the highest quality materials, we can get more wear out of the pieces we buy and ultimately, contribute to a more sustainable and equitable fashion industry.

Spread Awareness

Use our platforms to raise awareness about the importance of sustainable fashion and the impact of consumer choices. Share information about brands like Everviolet that are leading the way in ethical and eco-friendly practices. Together, we can amplify our impact and inspire others to join the movement for change.

Celebrate Progress

Recognize the progress we've made as a collective over the past decade. By acknowledging our achievements, we inspire continued action and commitment to building a better future for fashion and the planet.
