Why everyone should do their bit to make the fashion industry more sustainable

As awareness of the human impact on the environment continues to grow globally, at Crowdcube, we are happy to be able to support a wide variety of cleantech companies that are trying to make a difference.

As of June 2018, we were named the leading facilitator of cleantech investments in Britain’s startups and scaleups, and we haven’t stopped there. We’ve continued to see cleantech companies flock to Crowdcube, such as Sunstone IP Systems, who provide surveillance and wireless telecommunications to the most remote locations while helping global organisations reduce their carbon footprint.

Another cleantech pioneer Clothes Doctor, which is currently raising £200k on Crowdcube, is taking a different approach to help the environment. It aims to shake up a dated industry and reduce fashion waste by providing tailoring and repairs through its digital portal and in-store services.

Here are the company’s thoughts on why everyone should do their bit to make the fashion industry more sustainable:

We’re bombarded with data and news around pollution and environmental damage from various sectors. At Clothes Doctor, we support sustainable consumption, particularly around the fashion industry. We have selected five essential stats that showcase just why we should do our bit towards making fashion consumption more sustainable.

Reworking and repairing garments through Clothes Doctor’s service is almost 100% carbon neutral and directly tackles the problem of fashion pollution. Supporting this industry and raising awareness of alternative fashion consumption could have a significant contribution to tackling the environmental impact of fashion waste. The funds raised from our current crowdfunding campaign will enable us to scale our services further, so we can handle more orders and continue to drive awareness of our ‘rework, repair, rewear’ ethos.
