Why?

The garment industry is the 2nd most polluting industry in the world. This is causing severe damage to the earth and negatively impacting millions of people. We are here to help change that.

What exactly makes a garment sustainable?

Quality over quantity.
Fair paid work over sweat shops.
Natural fibres over synthetic/toxic fibres. 
Slow fashion is part of a brighter future.

When creating a sustainable garment one needs to consider many elements to create a truly sustainable and ethical product. You can ask yourself these questions to make a conscious purchase:

Who made this garment?
What were the working conditions like? 
How much water was used in the process?
Are the workers making fair wages?
What chemicals and toxins are being used?
What is the fabric content?
What happens to this product when it is discarded?
Does the brand support social or environmental programs?
Is it a locally made product?
 

We choose to carry and encourage brands that are taking care in how each product is made. Some considerations are: The fabric content (using biodegradable and natural fibres), the water used in the textile treating and dying process, employee compensation and working conditions, just to name a few. With these factors in mind we can begin to make more educated decisions when purchasing clothing. Ultimately, we as consumers have a duty to other people and our earth, to take care in how we source our clothing and what happens to it when it is discarded. We care so much about where our food comes from and what is in our cosmetic products; it is vital we begin to make conscious choices when it comes to clothing. We at good+wild are bridging the gap between the many amazing eco brands and their present and potential supporters.
