The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world and as the industry grows, the situation is only getting worse. Keen to play our part in minimising the environmental impact of the clothing industry, PnP are actively working to source and produce clothing using recycled materials. In favouring recycled materials over virgin clothing items we’re saving energy, minimising carbon emissions, decreasing water consumption and reducing waste.
Did you know?
It takes around 7 000 litres of water to produce a single pair of jeans. And the wastewater from production contains toxic dyes that are released into the world’s waterways. At PnP, we’re committed to making clothing that is more sustainable, which is why we’re championing water wise production using recycled water. Not only does this reduce the amount of water used to create a pair of jeans but it also ensures that the water leaving the plant doesn’t have a negative impact on the environment.
At PnP, we’re backing local businesses. And we think you should too. To help you do so, we’ve put ‘Pick Local’ stickers on some of your favourite products. Show your support for South African farmers, business owners and entrepreneurs by picking local, today.
