With the continuous development of global economy, people can make all kinds of goods. However, many goods will become garbage after having no use value. According to statistics, the world produces about 10 billion tons of garbage each year where there are about 92 million tons of garment waste. It takes about 200 years for most of the raw materials of garment waste to be degraded naturally. The garment industry has various styles and quality of clothes made into the market every day. So people will buy new clothes and then discard the old ones, which can produce more and more garment waste and threaten the earth’s environment increasely.
Fortunately, people are gradually realizing the importance of sustainable clothing. Now many clothing manufacturers are taking sustainable fabrics as their first choice when choosing fabrics. Sustainable fabrics are the fabrics which can be recyclable,durable and biogradable after being used, and have less pressure on the environment during the process of production. The clothing with such kind of fabrics having no original values can be made into new products to the market after being recycled and discomposition processed, which can bring about less pollution on the environment.

To know if a manufacturer is a sustainable manufacturer, we need to look at the following aspects.
1. Check what certificates the company has. A manufacturer with a GRS certificate (Global Recycled Standard) is more authoritative. What’s more,the manufactureres with ISO and BSCI certificates are also reliable.
2. Check the company’s website for descriptions of the use of sustainable fabrics, not only that, but their entire production process must be transparent and visible.
3. Support on-site factory visits. Every garment manufacturer has their own factories and allows customers to visit. They also can offer video factory inspections even in the current epidemic situation, which will allow you to make sure they are a real and large-scale garment factory.
