Sustainable is the New Black

Although 2020 was a dreadful year in so, so many ways, it did force everyone to take a honest look at their lives and think about how we’ll be facing the new world going forward. Although sustainability has always been important to me in my business, the pandemic made me realize that we’ll all have to change our habits if we want a future on this planet.

Because of the complex global supply networks surrounding almost everything, it’s tough to control many negative aspects of a garment’s history. It’s also important to understand that sustainable practices must be ever changing and adapting to new circumstances. So how does The Green Tailor do it?

I realized early on that we can’t have a single strategy, and that sustainable practices need to be part of our regular activities. I also realized that being 100% sustainable is not practical for many small businesses due to the expense in time and resources. My approach has been a waste reduction and re-use strategy, making sure the practice is incorporated into our regular work activities.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!!
