Interesting Facts about Sustainable Fashion, You Should Know!

Fashion Industry and Environment

Do we realize that clothing - fashion - as one of the basic human needs actually contributes to environmental damage? The textile, garment, and related industries require huge amounts of water, generate large amounts of waste water, and result in negligible carbon emissions. The UN European Economic Commission states that the world's fashion industry is responsible for no less than 20% of global water waste and 10% of gas emissions. 

Bandung Regency as one of the textile and garment centers encounter real problems related to the environment effect of the fashion industry. Research at the local level in several areas of Bandung Regency and other textile cities in West Java shows data that supports this fact. Various studies have shown the impact of the textile, garment, and its derivatives industry on the environment around the factory area.

The textile industry requires a large supply of water. Local entrepreneurs choose shortcuts to drill groundwater. Massive exploitation of groundwater also indirectly threatens the supply of clean water for local communities. In the other hand, this industry also produces waste water that is no less worrying.

River water and rice fields around the textile industry contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals in quite high concentrations. Pollution of groundwater is not only hazardous to health, but also creates a high cost effect for local residents who need clean water suitable for consumption. Farmers also need extra effort and costs to care for their plants to keep them productive. For sure, the decline in the quality of plants is one of the effects of groundwater pollution.

Fast Fashion

Styles and models in the world of fashion turn out to push us towards overconsumption patterns. This industry creates what is referred to as fast fashion. The fashion industry creates a fast-changing fashion culture. It makes us feel weird if we wear the same clothes for a long time, feels "out of date". It is said that in the US, a garment is in average only worn 40 times before it is discarded. Imagine the amount of clothes we consume in the name of fashion trend, simply to avoid being called "old fashioned ones". 

Another interesting fact is that we could be contributing in creating the world of fast fashion. The phenomenon of fast fashion arises because of our desire to have the latest fashion, which is faster and at a lower price. Then manufacturers respond by immediately producing new ones to meet our wishes. Clothing is mass-produced in large quantities at breakneck speed. Then sent to packaging. Is it all then purchased by consumers? It's not! As a result, the stock of unsold clothes has piled up.

What a fast and dynamic world of fashion. In fact, the accumulation of the production process and clothing waste has a major impact on the environment. That's why  fast fashion is critically responsible for air and water pollution, deforestation, and greenhouse gas emissions. Fast fashion has also created a culture of over consumption,  and of course the culture of waste. Imagine, it is estimated that 92 million tons of textile waste are produced every year.

Recently, a new movement has emerged. It is called sustainable fashion. The mindset starts to grow towards "a more conscious and eco-friendly way of living". Sustainable fashion is like an answer to how the fashion industry, -especially fast fashion- has attracted us to circumstances that are detrimental to the environment and ultimately to ourselves.

Upcycling Fashion 


I recognised the term "sustainable fashion" for first time was when I was scrolling through my Instagram timeline and came across "Diana Rikasari". I call her a "celebgram", in fact she is a designer, author, and entrepreneur. Fashion upcycling is her branding. It calls my attention to see her colourful feed with such unique style fashion. It's quite a new thing for me to know that there is a trend of upcycling clothes. I used to know that there is a trend of paper upcycling.

“Fashion is an extension of our identity, how we self express ourselves to the world. Fashion can make the world more fun.” ~ Diana Rikasari 

She is interested in fashion since she believes that we can see a person's personality from the clothes they wear. She has been in the fashion world for 12 years. Starting from writing a blog and then starting his own business in 2011. She first built the iwearup brand  that carries social values and environmental values. 

She is concerned about environmental issues, especially related to fashion upcycling. It is a such fact that the world is in a fashion crisis. There is a lot of fashion waste piled up in various countries. It is hard for her to close her eyes and ignore the reality. Since then She utilise used clothes and recycled waste in her fashion creations. 

It amazes me that Diana is then survive in this fashion world and made a difference.  It is not easy at all to get attention especially from Indonesian market. Well, She admitted that it is still difficult to spread awareness of environmental values. Many do not see this as a priority. To some extent, I do agree. It is a long way to go. However, I do learn from her journey and find my self more aware on the sustainable living in particular sustainable fashion things.

I then get a wider perspective on sustainable fashion. Fashion upcycling might be one thing about creating sustainability in fashion.  It has many facts that are incredibly widely open to my mind. Here are some facts about "Sustainable Fashion", you might need to know:

What is Sustainable Fashion?

Some name it as eco-friendly fashion. Eco-friendly fashion creates garments and accessories designed with longevity in mind. Basically eco-friendly fashion are produced and consumed with consideration for their long-term environmental footprint on the planet.  As a part of sustainable living, it embodies style and sustainability. 

Sustainable fashion is a practice in fashion that holds the values of the various parties involved in it, mainly the environment and humanity. How fashion in any form, - from personal lifestyle to the business realm- should prosper and leave as little loss as possible.

Sustainable fashion is a concept that aims to reduce the negative impact of the clothing industry,  mainly fast fashion. It is a movement toward clothes that respect the environment and the communities in which they are produced. 

That means taking into account not just the production of the raw materials that go into the fabric, but where and how the clothes are made, and who makes them. Here, we can see several determining aspect in sustainable fashion, namely: the material, the process, the place, and the people.

  • Material

Basically sustainable fashion only use eco-friendly materials. Sustainable fashion is based on the use of organic materials that are easily processed by nature, so that there is no risk of waste accumulation. In general, natural fibres are better for the environment than synthetic ones. Eco-friendly ones can significantly reduce carbon emissions. In addition, they are biodegradable and renewable. Viscose rayon for example is made from wood cellulose, a natural fibre that is biodegradable and contains no plastic.

Choosing a natural fibre is certainly a step in the right direction. However, it is important to take a note that just because a fabric is natural does not automatically make it sustainable. It is also important to consider where it came from. It is related to another aspect of sustainability, "the place".

Asia Pacific Rayon (APR) is the first fully integrated viscose rayon producer in Asia from plantation to viscose fibre. APR produces natural and biodegradable viscose rayon used in its textile products. APR sources its sustainable raw materials from sustainably managed forest plantations in Indonesia using fast growing tree species that excel at carbon sequestration and oxygen release. Trees are harvested every five years before being replanted, ensuring a constant supply of renewable raw materials.

APR is a part of the RGE (Royal Golden Eagle) Group, which was founded by Sukanto Tanoto in 1973. RGE manages a group of resource-based manufacturing companies with global operations. Its work ranges from the upstream, comprising sustainable resource development and harvesting, to downstream, where the companies create diverse value-added products for the global market.

  • Production process


As mentioned earlier, Manufacturing raw materials and fabric consume intensive water, energy, and chemical. From the production until colouring process. The concern starts at the very beginning of the production stage itself. Even the simplest fabrics require water to grow and energy to manufacture. But producers can explore renewable energies or manufacture fabrics that require minimal water. Sustainable producers must work to reduce emissions and recycle chemicals and waste, creating a circular production process.


APR fulfils the sustainability in the production process by managing the emissions and chemical usage. It operates a closed loop manufacturing process. It can recover more than 90 per cent of the chemicals used in production. APR using mill that mainly powered with energy generated from renewable biomass and recovery boilers. APR also source the majority of raw material locally to eliminate long distance transportation across oceans and land. 
closed loop manufacturing process/economic circular

Asia Pacific Yarn (APY) is an Indonesian viscose staple fiber yarn manufacturer located in Pangkalan Kerinci, Riau Province, alongside APR. It has 300,000-tonne capacity mill. It is one of the newest and best-designed mills in the world.

Using the latest technologies in yarn spinning and with an annual capacity of 7.56 metric tonnes per year.  The annual output will be 72,000 kilograms of knitted fabrics per year, 432,000 meters of printed fabric, 400,000 meters of dyed fabric and 25,000 pieces of garments to support the Indonesian textile industry and overseas markets.


  • Community (The People and The Place)

Sustainable fashion is a movement that is not only environmentally friendly but also has numerous benefits for society. Sustainability is often defined as people, planet, and profit, meaning treating workers fairly, reducing environmental damage, and making a profit. 

It can promote ethical and fair labor practices and support local communities. You may remember #whomademyclothes. The Global Fashion Revolution campaign was motivated by the collapse of Rana Plaza (a building in Bangladesh where garment workers sew clothes from various fashion brands quickly) in 2013 which claimed more than 1000 lives and 2500 injuries. 

By caring to know who makes our clothes, trains us to be more sensitive to humanitarian issues. Have the workers who make our clothes been paid a decent wage? Safe and comfortable work environment? Have we taken part in their welfare?

Sustainable fashion has a goal to improve social situations in the fashion industry. This includes ensuring safe and fair working circumstances for workers throughout the supply chain, in factories and plantations. The goal includes paying fair wages, reasonable working hours, and protecting workers' rights.

We can't ignore the fact that generally speaking, sustainable fashion companies have better treatment for their workers. From complying with independent audits to providing a transparent supply chain. Sustainable brands are often doing more to protect the rights and safety of their workers. Campaigns such as #whomademyclothes have gone a long way in promoting a fairer industry, and to a large extent, sustainable brands are leading this charge.

We also should take a look at the broader impact on the local community.  APR has creating jobs for local people in its operations. In addition, It has purpose to create a positive impact on the area of its operations. APR has partnered with producers of traditional batik cloth, to help them use sustainable viscose and natural dyes in their work.

Batik Seruni is one of Batik community, a small-medium entrepreneur (SME) in Siak District, Riau Province. They regularly get a monthly training including colour, design, digital marketing, and business planing from APR together with API (Indonesia Textile Association). This community showcases the beauty of Batik Wastra, a traditional fabric for its intricate design and motifs inspired by local wisdom. 

APR also work with Indonesian brand TORAJAMELO. APR supports TORAJAMELO to use its locally-produced viscose in their collection creating traditional tenun designs. They also works with women artisans from rural excluded communities.  TORAJAMELO has recognized the potential of viscose as a cost-effective alternative to imported synthetic fabrics, as it’s readily available and better for the environment.

Surprisingly, APR has also worked with BT Batik Trusmi. A local batik brand that is the pride of my hometown -Cirebon- at the 2023 Muslimah Fashion Festival. The viscose rayon used not only offers unparalleled softness and comfort, but it also provides a breathable sensation, making it ideal for layered looks.


As a matter of good compliance to audits process, APR also ensure the sustainability with third party certification. It has multiple standards, which means different parts of the process are certified by different bodies.
  • For natural fabrics, the first step is to show that the raw material was grown on sustainable plantations or farms. In APR’s case 100 per cent of the wood pulp is certified, mainly through international body PEFC
  • Next is to show that the fabric was manufactured responsibly, in a facility that minimises emissions and chemical and energy usage while taking account of the health and safety of workers and nearby communities. As a new mill that started operations in January 2019, APR is working toward achieving key manufacturing certification standards.
  • Lastly at the product level there are certifications that look at specific attributes, such as whether a product is biodegradable, or is free from harmful chemicals. At APR, the product has been awarded Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX, confirming the viscose is free from any harmful substances and is safe for contact with babies and small children.

APR’s operations are guided by the RGE 5Cs founding principles that whatever  they do must be “good for the Community, good for the Country, good for the Climate, good for Customer and only then will it be good for the Company”. To be a world-class responsible and efficient viscose rayon producer, APR creating value for the Community, Country, Climate, Customer, and Company.

How To Be Part of Sustainable Fashion Movement?

As consumers, we play a crucial role in reducing the environmental impact of fashion. If we’ve decided to make more responsible clothing choices, Here are simple tips to get started on eco-friendly fashion journey. We can start from the easiest one, as our needs and abilities. Well,  we can think big, act small, and just start now, right?

🎀 Choose clothes made from organic/eco friendly/natural material.

No need to immediately replace all fashion items with organic/natural materials by choosing to buy from sustainable brands. However, when planning to buy new fashion products, choose organic products that are more environmentally friendly. 

🎀 Upcycling/Repurposing Clothes

Styling, upcycling, or repurposing clothing can be done regularly to get a fresh look from a combination of several old clothes. That way there is no need to buy new clothes to get a different look. Some clothes can be mixed and matched to give a new impression. It's just as cool as a completely new outfit.

🎀 Preloved, Vintage, or Barter? Why not!

Selling and buying used clothes or commonly known as preloved is also a real step towards implementing sustainable fashion. Preloved or thrifting is an effort to extend the life of clothes, by transferring them to other people so they can be combined with more clothes.

Don't be shy about hunting for vintage items at flea markets! you can get good stuff at lower prices. As the same time being more environmentally friendly! If you don't have time to go to the used goods market, preloved items can be obtained easily from various sources - social media, garage sales, or from various online marketplaces in Indonesia.

Moreover, barter with fellow fashion lovers! Before there was a universal medium of exchange, namely money, humans bartered. Join a community of sustainable fashion lovers and organize mass bartering events. Add friends, save expenses, love the environment. Cool, right?

🎀 Choose Quality Clothing

Quality clothing will have a longer service life. It means investing in high-quality and long-lasting pieces. Good quality clothes last longer.  It may seem to be more pricey. However while you hand over more money in the short term creating a sustainable wardrobe, you save money in the long run because your clothes will last longer. This can reduce the consumption of fashion and the rate of fast fashion.

🎀 Take Good Care of Things 

Take good care of your clothes. Wash your clothes and shoes carefully. Repair them if they are damaged. This helps make the item last longer. Whenever possible, always use the right type of detergent, wash gently by hand, and always dry clothes out of direct sunlight.

🎀 Every small step counts

Always look for the latest updates on "Sustainable Fashion" news through various eco-friendly groups on the internet. Apart from keeping you motivated to support this love of the earth movement, you can also get various inspirations.

It is hoped that more and more people will realize the negative impact of the fast fashion industry and switch to sustainable fashion. Every small step counts, because if taken together it will bring about a huge wave of change.

Hopefully sustainable fashion is not just a trend, but a way of life. As we continue to prioritize sustainability in our fashion choices, sustainable fashion will become the norm. It will create a better future for ourselves, the fashion industry, and the planet.

  1. Untung aku bukan tipe yg sangat memperhatikan fashion terkini dari pakaian. Buatku, pakaian yg hrs dibeli yg terpenting nyaman dan berkualitas. Mungkin jadinya mahal, tapi akan lebih awet dan ga harus sering2 beli .

    Beli baju preloved buatku juga ga masalah mba. Trutama kayak winter coat, aku LBH suka preloved. Krn negara kita toh bukan 4 musim, jadi membeli barang2 winter selalunya mahal kalo yg baru..makanya aku memilih beli yg preloved asalkan masih kondisi bagus.

    Kalopun ada baju yg sudah tidak terpakai tp masih sangat bagus kondisinya, selalunya aku donasikan. Semua baju yg aku donasiin, pasti dlm good condition, Krn aku memang ga suka beli outfit yg tidak berkualitas. Selain buang2 duit, biasanya bahannya juga jelek, panas dan cepat rusak. Malah menambah sampah.

    1. Aku malah jadi kepikiran, bener juga ya winter coat mending beli preloved, biasanya juga masih bagus2, toh gak sering dipakai juga.

      Anw, sama nih, aku kalau mau donasikan baju juga dipilih yang masih bagus. Kadang donasi baju bukan karena bajunya udah jelek soalnya, ya karena lemarinya udah kepenuhan aja.

    2. Sepakat banget sama Mak Fanny, akunpun membeli baju yg penting nyaman dan long lasting hahhaaa. Suka beli preloved juga kalo emang cocok.

  2. Keren, Teeeh. Ga kepikiran kalau soal baju yang ramah lingkungan ini apakah mempertimbangkan juga kesejahteraan karyawannya. Ngomong² soal baju second, asik juga ya konsep barteran. Jadinya dapat baju yang beneran aos di badan. Secara orang kayak aku tuh agak gede effortnya nyari yang pas dengan opostur tubuh. Banyakan harus dirombak lagi biar fit in

  3. Terakhir belakangan trend Sustainable fashion sedang banyak di 'galakan' dgn tujuan untuk mengurangi dampak negatif industri pakaian. Harapannya pun agar ada pengurangan limbah, penggunaan energi yang lebih efisien. Semoga semakin banyak masyarakat yg lebih menyadari yg cukup mempengaruhi lingkungan juga

  4. Masyaallah keren sekali baju ramah lingkungan yang juga sangat memikirkan kesejahteraan karyawannya, aku sih setuju banget soal preloved, tapi tidak semua preloved kubeli lebih ke baju baju yang aku jarang pake tapi perlu, seperti coat atau blazer, karena aku bukan tipe orang yang mengikuti perkembangan fashion.

  5. Wuih keren. Di masa kayak sekarang, di mana kerusakan bumi udah semakin parah, berbagai bidang kehidupan sudah harus mulai menerapkan sistem sustainable ya. Walopun harusnya sejak dari awal. Tapi ya, better late than never. Semoga nih, akan makin banyak brand dan juga influencer yang menerapkan sistem sustainable ini. Supaya masyarakat seperti kita bisa terinspirasi. Demi bumi yang lebih baik, dan demi hidup kita yang lebih berkualitas.

  6. Wuih keren. Di masa kayak sekarang, di mana kerusakan bumi udah semakin parah, berbagai bidang kehidupan sudah harus mulai menerapkan sistem sustainable ya. Walopun harusnya sejak dari awal. Tapi ya, better late than never. Semoga nih, akan makin banyak brand dan juga influencer yang menerapkan sistem sustainable ini. Supaya masyarakat seperti kita bisa terinspirasi. Demi bumi yang lebih baik, dan demi hidup kita yang lebih berkualitas.

  7. Aku repair kaos kaki kan ya mba Ophiii, jahit tangan eh diprotes si kaka, katanya terasa gerinjil2 haha. Dasar aku yg nggak rapih jahitnya. Baju aku secukupnya tapi yg bikin banyak adalah dikasih ibu, mamah, teman dan sepupu. Jadi aja banyak lagi 😅
    Anak2 juga gitu, baju secukupnya karena mereka kan kalau suka ya itu2 aja yg dipake 😆

  8. Iya nih aku mulai mengurangi membeli pakaian yang ngak penting karena baru sadar pakaian sudah menumpuk di lemari, biasanya kalau sudah ngak muat lagi dan masih bagus, aku tawarin ke orang yang mau. Limbah pakaian bener-bener harus dicarikan solusinya dan aku rasa memang sudah saatnya memilih fashion yang sustainable karena tentunya lebih ramah lingkungan.

  9. Mulai tahun 2016 saya mengurangi belanja baju. Bahkan, 2 x lebaran saya memilih untuk tidak beli baju lagi.

    Saya sudah merasa miris akibat lingkungan yang tercemar dari berbagai aspek, terutama dari industri fashion ini.

    Mencoba msnguranginya, baju-baju lama saya beberapa kali juga saya kasih ke yang membutuhkan. Selain ifu, biar lemari enggak numluk banget, jadi mudah dirapikan.

  10. According to the research, the 10 countries most interested in sustainable fashion are: United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Iceland, Australia, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Norway, Denmark and Canada. Hopefully Indonesia will soon to be one of those country

  11. Naahh, aku termasuk yang membeli baju trend sepanjang massa, jadi bisa dipake lamaaaa, ga terllau banyak numpuk di rumah. Udah belajar memakai secukupnya, kalo pun beli pasti ada yang keluar untuk didonasikan agar lebih bermanfaat.
    Semoga hal2 kecil bisa membantu lingkungan kita tetep nyaman dan lestari.

  12. Memang idealnya begini ya..
    Dengan menerapkan sustainable fashion, kita semua bisa lebih bijak dalam membeli fashion item. Bukan hanya karena seneng dan punya uang untuk beli, tapi deep thinkingnya lagi memikirkan fashion item kita sudah termasuk terbuat dari bahan ramah lingkungan, tidak?

    Dan kini mulai menerapkan Repurpose pakaian, Thrifting, atau cari ide pakaian preloved atau vintage style.

  13. For long time, it happened when we get flood in 2019. We lose so many clothes. Since that our family start to be minimalis person, especially buy clothes and so like mix and match our fashion

  14. Lewat artikel ini jadi ada gambaran ternyata industri fashion butuh supply air dan rawan mencemari lingkungan. Aku sendiri alhamdulillah jarang beli baju. Biasa dapat warisan baju yang kondisinya memang masih sangat layak pakai. Trus yaa harga memang ga bohong. Kualitas bagus, harga lebih tinggi, tapi juga awet. Jadinya malah ga perlu sering beli baju, kan.

  15. Aku udah jarang ngikutin tren busana atau pakaian. Sekarang beli itu kalau butuh. Belinya juga kalau bisa yang long lasting, bisa dipakai sampai kapanpun. Beli preloved juga gak masalah sih, gak harus semua baru

    1. nah, iya sama Jiah aku juga udah gak ikutaa, malah banyakan baju kerja, jadi kadang ngikutin aturan seragam kerja atau baju kerja yang pantas aja, hehehe

  16. Ada untungnya juga, aku tipikal orang yang nggak suka belanja pakaian. bisa dihitung deh pakaiankua ahaha, kalau sudah nggak muat atau sobek diaman-mana wkwkwk...baru deh beli. Biasanya baju bekas yang rusak aku olah jahit tangan, biasanya jadi lap dapur,keset dan aku bagi-bagiin ke adik-adikku..

  17. Sejak belajar gaya hidup minimalis jadi kebuka mindset-nya untuk merasa cukup dan pakai yang ada, termasuk urusan fashion. Kalau pun harus beli sekarang lebih mempertimbangkan untuk thrift atau kalau beli baru harus lihat bahannya, aku biasanya beli bahan linen sih, Mbak.

    Btw, Diana Rikasari favorit aku dari dulu awal-awal nge-blog. Aku pikir dia bakalan terus-terusan menerapkan fast fashion, karena you know lah branding dia unik dan colorful pasti fashionnya harus gonta ganti terus yaa kaan hehe. Nggak taunya sekarang aku makin nge-fans karena dia selalu upcycling clothes.

  18. Semoga lebih bijak lagi ya dalam belanja fashion nih, kadang beli cuman karena lucu aja huhuhu

  19. Such a long way to have a habit to wear sustainable fashion. Not only for users, but also for producers, it will take so many steps to get sustainable certificate.

  20. Saya termasuk jarang yg beli baju selain hemat ternyata mengurangi sampah ya. Pake baju seken udah biasa tp biasanya bekas adik sendiri heheh. Beli pakaian seken sekarang trend tp sy ga setuju kalau baju sekennya impor, krn sebenarnya jd nambah sampah . Dulu pas sma pas jaman baju bekas cimol di Bandung pernah ngobrol sm pedagangnya katanya dlm 1 kontainer itu campir bajua layak pakai/jual dan nggak, jdnya sampah kalau baju ga layak

  21. There are many advantages to supporting sustainable fashion projects, including more durable items of clothing leading to fewer resources needed to produce requisite lines. Also, smaller-scale, greater-sustainable brands need custom to compete with larger, unsustainable operators.

  22. Mode pakaian memang sanga cepat sekali pergantiannya ya mbak, kalau dituruti bisa tiap bulan beli baju, bahkan bisa jadi dalam sebulan bisa lebih dari sekali beli baju baru.

    Kalau saya sendiri sih, termasuk orang yang biasa aja pakai baju yang itu lagi itu lagi, selama dipakai masih nyaman, nggak bakal ganti beli yang baru. Kalau ngikuti trend mode, capek sendiri

  23. Duh tapi memang benar deh kalau industri fashion itu penyumbang terbanyak di dunia. Apalagi kalau pengikut fast fashion, kebayang deh tumpukan sampah tekstilnya. Salah satu yang aku suka tuh Diana Rikasari, karena dia bisa menciptakan upcycle fashion yang bisa dicontoh juga nih.

  24. Fast fashion has big impact for longer time of period. Cheap clothes made of polyester are hardly decompose material. Better to choose cotton fabric even though the price will be higher but the quality is better.

  25. Sustainable Fashion sebenarnya bisa menjadi solusi mengatasi masalah sampah pakaian apalagi sebagian pakaian tersebut susah untuk di daur ulang, meskipun ada aktivitas untuk daur ulang pakaian bekas tapi masih terbatas dan persentase-nya kecil sekali. Di tambah lagi keberadaan bahan tekstil yang tidak ramah lingkungan lebih banyak dan murah berimbas pada murahnya harga pakaian. Meskipun hanya satu langkah kecil, tapi yang bisa saya lakukan hanya mengurangi membeli baju jika tidak perlu.

  26. Disanalah kita harus menguatkan diri, bahwa membeli baju itu berdasarkan kebutuhan, bukan keinginan. Ya daripada ujungnya tidak dipakai, kan emang lebih baik mix and match yang ada aja dulu ya

    1. Iyes. Lagi aku alami nih. Tahun ini butuh baju karena yang lama udah gak muat. Habis itu malah kaya ketagihan beli. Jadi nguatin diri dulu dan mikir ini bisa jadi sampah fashion

    2. Iyes. Lagi aku alami nih. Tahun ini butuh baju karena yang lama udah gak muat. Habis itu malah kaya ketagihan beli. Jadi nguatin diri dulu dan mikir ini bisa jadi sampah fashion

  27. Nah iya, saya pernah dengar ada yang sharing kalau di laut itu udah banyak sampah kain. Dan untuk mengurangi tumpukan sampah sebaiknya kita bijak dalam hal fashion, termasuk menerapkan sustainable fashion

  28. Paling pas memang kembali ke gaya hidup minimalist ya ka, beli oakaian yang aedikit mahal tapi awet, hingga kita nggak perlu sering ganti dan menumpuk limbah pakaian aerta produk fashion lainnya.

  29. Soal fashion di negara kita kudu ada kampanye yang gencar terus nih. Pasalnya makin ke sini makin banyak juga lho yang konsumtif beli baju baru.

    Ibarat kata, mau keluar rumah sehari 5x ya, ganti baju 5x dengan baju yg berbeda.

  30. Sudah lama aku sangat tertarik dengan isu sustainable fashion ini ketika lagi beres-beres lemari stress sendiri dengan banyaknya baju yang bahkan aku baru sadar ada baju tersebut di lemari. Dari situ aku tobat bener, nggak mau beli-beli baju dulu sebelum yang ada sudah usang dan nggak bisa dipakai lagi. Alhamdulillah, ringan di beberesnya, ringan pula hisabnya nanti insyaallah.

  31. Keren nih tulisannya. Aku baru tahu loh istilah sustainable fashion. Aku juga beberapakali memakai baju preloved, oke kok dan nyaman

  32. Ulasan yang lengkap dan menarik tentang Sustainable Fashion. Beberapa sudah aku lakukan, meski terlihat sepele tapi smeoga bisa ikut ambil bagian dalam misi mulia untuk planet kita tercinta. Termasuk Preloved, Vintage, or Barter: aku tuh sering hunting preloved lewat marketplace khusus yang jual ini, atau beli di tokonya langsung. terus vintage kadang kalau bongkar barang lama tinggal diperbarui terus dipakai lagi, sementara barter, aku bersaudara 6 perempuan semua. Tiap mudik kami tukeran baju, tas dll. Jadi terlihat punya baru padahal lama...:)

  33. Bahkan sekrang juga banyak seniman atau pengrajin asesoris yg memanfaakan bahan bekas dan dari sampah untuk didaur ulang. Patut diberikan pengharagana meksipun sekecil apapun cara yang dilakukan dalam sustanable fashion. Aku ada kok mbak beberapa preloved, kalau masih bagus kenapa gak dibeli apalagi harganya juga lebih murah

  34. Kebayang banget untuk menghentikan pembelian fast fashion yang memang harganya sangat terjangkau dan modelnya macem-macem.
    Jadi kudu bersaing antara fast fashion dan sustainable fashion di dunia mode agar bangga digunakan anak muda zaman sekarang.

  35. Aku tuh masih moody sih untuk persoalan fashion ini, karena pernah ada di tahun2 yg aku bener2 cuma pakai itu2 aja dan lemari jadi ramping banget tapi tiba-tiba pengen punya referensi baju yg berbeda, jadi gembung lagi deh lemarinya

  36. From this article I know that everything could be thought
    We need good support system to make them realistic
    Everyone must know that sustainable from fashion make some many advantages not only for one person but overall population

  37. Ada masanya aku pernah keranjingan belanja fashion, padahal sudah punya baju dengan model yang sama, cuma rasa ingin punya yg model itu sangat kuat. Padahal akhirnya baju-baju itu ya cuma numpuk aja di lemari. Jadi pengen aku kasih2in aja ke keluarga dekat biar bermanfaat. Sekarang, kalo nggak butuh ya nggak beli

  38. love the earth by using natural materials for the garment industry, for example, those that do not use synthetic materials

  39. Baru dengar nama desainer ini, Diana Rikasari. Dia bertahan dengan idealismenya dengan peduli pada lingkungan melalui usaha daur ulang mode. Pensaran jadinya, mau kepoin instagramnya ah.

  40. Aku suka fashion dari muda, tapi aku ga mau menumpuk barang ga bermanfaat. Makanya kalau beliin anak yang branded sampai lintang usia 17 tahun bisa kukasih ke Binar yang usia 4 tahun, begitu juga baju mas Pijar ke Pendar. Kesannya branded mahal, tapi aweeet sampai lama dan ga jadi sampah. Bisa dikasihkan ke orang dalam kondisi bagus, bahkan bisa disale lagi loh
