With fashion being one of the world’s most wasteful industries, it’s time to start thinking about replacing polluting, resource-heavy processes with energy-efficient alternatives. From shipping garments overseas to conducting numerous sample iterations, as the industry grows, the environmental damage increases. By taking the necessary steps to minimize the number of physical samples throughout the product development process, apparel organizations can significantly cut back on their carbon footprint and reduce water use.
“When we speak with existing and prospective customers, they all have one thing in common: improving their sustainability. However, this can be difficult to quantify. The calculator exhibits the impact of 3D and encourages them to double down on their digital efforts as they can see the benefits and the tangible value of 3D as opposed to creating real-life samples,” says Katie-Ann Allabarton, Business Development Manager, Browzwear.
To help you get started, we’ve built an environmental impact calculator that enables you to determine the amount of carbon dioxide you can reduce and water you can save by developing styles in 3D as opposed to physical prototyping.
Simply fill out the number of styles created per season for each category, followed by the number of styles developed in 3D, then let the calculator do the work for you.
