It’s nearly Global Recycling Day. As a fashion brand we understand that the garment manufacturing sector is a highly polluting industry. We are always looking for ways to improve our processes and by recycling fabrics, we can reduce the amount of waste going to landfills and reduce our carbon footprint.
We established the Anaya With Love brand with this in mind. The tulle and lining used on all Anaya products is made from 100% certified plastic bottles which are transformed into soft, comfortable and beautiful dresses. All of our recycled fabrics are sourced from certified suppliers who provide Scope certificates and Transaction Certificates for each batch of fabric we order.
Our aim is to have a positive influence on this area of environmental concern by reducing the amount of plastic bottles we are sending to landfill. Did you know, that using polyester uses less energy, has a lower water consumption and creates fewer greenhouse gas emissions than virgin polyester.
We are currently exploring other more ’sustainable’ fabrics and trying to introduce these to our other brands, not just Anaya With Love. We believe that fashion can be both stylish and sustainable, and we're proud to be part of the movement towards a more eco-friendly future.
It’s not just fabrics we are looking into, we have also been working hard alongside our suppliers to explore more sustainable sequins. Whist we have a way to go before recycled sequins can replace regular conventional sequins, we are excited that this is an option we are now able to explore.
If you're looking for a new dress, consider choosing one made from recycled materials – you'll look great and be doing something great for the planet.
