Sustainability is a hot topic these days, and for good reason. Society is increasingly realizing that actions and choices have a major impact on the environment. One of the industries known for its negative impact on the environment is the clothing industry. Fortunately, these days there are more and more sustainable clothing brands that are committed to making the world a better place. One such example is Circularity from Etten-Leur.
Circularity is a clothing brand that focuses on sustainability and circularity. The brand was established in Etten-Leur in 2021 and has since made great strides in the sustainable clothing industry. Circularity aims to break the linear model of the apparel industry and work towards a circular model. This means they focus not only on producing sustainable clothing, but also on the minimizing waste.
One of the ways Circularity minimizes waste is by using collected clothing. This clothing is recycled and then reused to make new clothing. As a result waste minimized and the lifespan of clothing extended.
In short, Circularity is committed to sustainability and circularity in many areas. Wijngaaarden SafeGoed is a supplier of clothing produced by Circularity. Reactions to Circularity's products from our customers are very positive. In fact, the clothing does not fall short of clothing from traditional manufacturers in terms of quality, but does have a unique sustainable production process.

If you want to buy sustainable clothing, there are a number of things you can look out for to make sure you make a conscious choice. We highlight a few of them:
Look at the materials used. Cotton, for example, is a commonly used material in clothing, but its production can be very environmentally damaging. Organic cotton is a more sustainable alternative. Other sustainable materials include hemp, linen and recycled polyester.
Pay attention to how the garment was produced. Sustainable clothing brands often work with factories that use green energy, water-saving techniques and have good working conditions.
Look for certificates that indicate the garment was sustainably produced, such as the GOTS certificate for organic cotton or the Fair Trade certificate for fair working conditions.
Choose brands that are transparent about their production process and materials. This gives you insight into the choices the brand makes and how sustainable their products are.
Sustainable clothing is often high quality and lasts longer than fast fashion. By choosing good quality clothing, you contribute to a more sustainable wardrobe and reduce waste.
It is important to realize that sustainable clothing is often a bit more expensive than fast fashion. This is because more sustainable materials and production processes are used and more attention is paid to fair working conditions. It is therefore a good idea to invest in quality garments that last a long time and have a positive impact on people and the environment.
