Waste Reduction

Updated: Jun 1, 2020

A natural way to create a cycle which in turn feeds us in the future. A decision for choosing natural fibres is not only because they feel comfortable and are breathable to wear, they can be added to compost and brake down naturally.

Even though a significant amount of time is spent choosing a suitable pattern and laying the pieces out, there still will be some waste. There are a few suitable options for disposing the waste.

Some companies turn clothes into other practical items, insulation for housing, rages for cleaning. These are good ways to lengthen the life of the material.

Although, a method closer to home, is composting. Knowing the process is complete in a holistic manner from start to finish. A process which is relatively simple as well.

There are also methods such as hot composting which can decrease the time. From start to finish in an average of eighteen days which is significantly shorter than cold composting.

Composting helps to take control of the process. Allowing a reduction in waste and again a method which keeps the environment in mind.
