SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability means living life to the fullest without compromising future generations' ability to do so. It respects the interconnectedness of all life and acknowledges the responsibility that each person has to consider the effects that his actions have on other life forms, both living and to be born.

All the major manufacturers of waxed cotton garments are

all guilty of following the same principle,

"all wax cotton garments have a limited lifespan".

The above care labels means that the garments have a limited lifespan.

 

But here at Wax Jackets Cleaned, we have the solution!

Typically, the fashion industry is not considered

to be one that causes a lot of pollution.

 

However, this is far from the truth!

 

 

Studies show that waste from fashion is the second

largest polluting industry worldwide (behind coal). 

 

The clips below are from a very recent documentary (released on the 8th of October, 2018) to show how much

pollution fashion actually causes. 

This video really shows the amount of people unaware about how environmentally damaging the fashion industry can be...

As proved by the video on the above, a very high

quantity of water is needed to grow the cotton required

to produce our cotton based clothing.

For example, did you know that it takes 2,700 litres of water to

grow enough cotton for one T-Shirt?

 

ONE. T-SHIRT.

 

Imagine how much water would need to be used to produce enough cotton for one waxed jacket...

This short video, from the same documentary mentioned above, highlights how much water is necessary to

maintain our vast demand for cotton.

 

Due to irrigation over the past few decades to supply the unquenchable cotton with the much needed water, the once flourishing ocean is now nothing but an arid wasteland...

AS BRIEFLY MENTIONED ABOVE

 

Manufacturers of waxed cotton garments are not willing to properly clean & repair the aforementioned garments, as they will make more

money from their consumers throwing away &

replacing the old items with new ones.

 

For example, if you have a jacket which needs to be cleaned, as it has been stored incorrectly, picked up moisture and now has a musty smell which renders it unwearable, to straight up replace it you could

be paying from £100 - £1,000 to replace it!

 

So not only are you throwing away an item which can be restored to it's former glory (in the right hands), but you are doing two additional things.

 

Spending extra money when it is not necessarily required, plus sapping more and more water to feed the cotton needed

to actually manufactuer the jacket! 

 

Instead why not just get it

professionally cleaned / repaired / re-waxed!?

 

By using this service, you are helping to save the environment as these garments cannot be

recycled and only go into landfill!

 

The planet is drowning in waste!
