Why is sustainability important when shopping
The textile industry causes 4 billion tons of CO2 every year and thus causes more greenhouse gas emissions than all aviation and shipping combined. And as if that weren't the worst, around 35% of the microplastics in the oceans come from textiles and toxic chemicals are used in the manufacture of the textiles. The fashion industry must finally focus on sustainability and we at BAREEN want to do our part.
3 tips for sustainable shopping
1. Quality not quantity
Extend the life of your clothes by investing in good quality. You will quickly notice that you will enjoy one high-quality t-shirt more than 10 “cheap” t-shirts.
2. Timeless classics
Simplify your style and your wardrobe by enriching flashy clothing with timeless, high-quality basics and pimping them up with second-hand items.
3. Get to know the materials
In principle, it is a good idea to avoid so-called polyester, as this is produced from petroleum and cannot be sustainably degraded. It is important to know that organic cotton uses far less water than conventional cotton.
We hope these simple tips have given you a little clue as to what to look out for. It is very important to us at BAREEN that we take care of the environment. That's why all our t-shirts are made from organic (GOTS-certified) cotton. Our classic fit in white is perfect as a timeless staple in your wardrobe and we can assure you that if you take good care of it, you can love it for years to come.
