How Our Ethical Business Standards Support a Sustainable Future
A sustainable future is the best legacy a company can leave for the next generation. The only way to achieve this goal is by staying true to ethical business standards that support a sustainable future. Taylor Jay Collection is committed to the responsibility and accountability in supporting and giving a sustainable future.
Our Taylor Jay Collection Approach
Taylor Jay Collection understands how the fashion industry has been negatively impacting the planet. It’s time for a change in the fashion industry and to bring a positive impact to the planet. Here are a few ways Taylor Jay Collection is helping bring positive change:
- Using a slow-fashion standard and not a fast-fashion approach.
- Using eco-friendly textiles and not man-made materials.
- Implementing recycle & upcycle processes to the supply chain.
According to Forbes, slow-fashion is an approach to producing clothing that considers all aspects of the supply chain and aims to respect people, the environment, and animals. Fast fashion is purely profit-driven and doesn’t take into account the impact that the supply chain may have on the environment and its inhabitants. At Taylor Jay Collection, every piece of clothing is made from a fair labor factory that uses natural fibers.
Naturally made fibers, such as cotton, wool, and silk are much better for the environment. Synthetic materials often use a form of polyester. All forms of polyester are made from petroleum. The extraction of petroleum is detrimental to the environment. Although petroleum is mainly known as the main ingredient in making gasoline and diesel, it has been used in the fashion industry for decades. You may find that many of your pieces of clothing are made from polyester. While the fashion industry uses polyester, Taylor Jay Collection uses natural fibers.
Recycled & Upcycled Clothing
Upcycled clothing is old or worn-out clothing that is recycled and used to make new pieces of clothing. Upcycling is to repurpose the materials from old clothes (cotton, wool, or silk) and give the materials a longer life. This reduces the need to gather new clothing materials, helping to reduce the impact on the environment by not needing to make as much of these materials and also keeping old clothes out of dumps.
At Taylor Jay Collection, we want our consumers to know that our commitment to sustainable fashion is at the core of our company. You can rest knowing that every piece of clothing from Taylor Jay Collection is specifically made through processes that are safe to the environment and promote a healthier planet.
