What is sustainability?
To sustain something means to support it in a way that is ongoing. To continually renew, regenerate and breathe life into something. We use the term to refer to life-supporting and interconnected relationships between: human beingsthe environment design — which itself an interconnection betweedesign/economics/politics/scale. Sustainability is far more than removing pollutants from the garment supply chain. It is about giving renewed life to the supply chain. Sustainability requires understanding the supply chain as a living circle which includes farmers, workers, artisans, buyers and consumers, our human and natural environment, and is a shared support network of trade, knowledge, helpful relationships and solution sharing.
