Earth Day is a great time to consider the different ways we can all treat our planet a little better. At Voloshin, we’re proud to have several practices in place that minimize our impact, and we continue to make moves toward increasing our sustainability even more.
Natural fibers. We choose to work with natural fibers because they are a renewable resource that can be replenished over time. Natural fibers are also biodegradable, as opposed to synthetically-produced fibers that are difficult to dispose of and often require incineration.
Deadstock fabrics. To increase our focus on sustainability, we chose to use only deadstock fabrics for our upcoming Summer 2020 collection. Deadstock fabric is leftover material from other fashion brands who overproduced, and rather than throwing the fabric away, we've given it a second chance to become beautiful Voloshin dresses.
Small batch production. All of our collections are produced in small batches. This means there is no excess inventory that could later end up in landfills or incinerated. Smaller productions also means we can spend more on higher quality materials and more sustainable practices.
Eco-conscious partnerships. Our production partners in India create our garments by hand, so there is less material waste and pollution. Additionally, one of our facilities is solar powered—another move toward using renewable resources and avoiding fossil fuels.
Recyclable shipping materials. We also strive to make our shipping eco-friendly. We use recyclable paper envelopes, cardboard boxes, and tissue paper so that our customers are able to reduce their waste as well.
For us here at Voloshin, it’s important that our clothes feel as good ethically as they look aesthetically. By supporting slow fashion, you too are reducing the negative impact on our planet, and are aiding in our mission to create a more sustainable industry.
