Sustainability is at the core of Tribal Globe. Unlike any other competitor in the fashion industry we actively compensate 500kg of CO2 for every product of clothing sold. Furthermore, all of our clothing is made in an organic way.
The fashion industry has a disastrous impact on the environment. In fact, it is the second largest polluter in the world, just after the oil industry. And the environmental damage is increasing as the industry grows.
Environmental impact of the fashion industry:
In most of the countries in which garments are produced, untreated toxic wastewaters from textiles factories are dumped directly into the rivers.
Wastewater contains toxic substances such as lead, mercury, and arsenic, among others. These are extremely harmful for the aquatic life and the health of the millions people living by those rivers banks. The contamination also reaches the sea and eventually spreads around the globe.
Another major source of water contamination is the use of fertilizers for cotton production, which heavily pollutes runoff waters and evaporation waters.
To counter this we made our clothes in countries with stricter environmental regulations for factories. Furthermore, our clothes are made from organic material which does not require chemicals to be produced. To be sure that you buy a product that doesn’t pollute the earth as much, you can look for a certification label controlling chemical content like GOTS. We also have a GOTS certification on our clothes. After all of these measures there will still be to much pollution, so we compensate 500kg CO2 for every product.
Join our tribe so we can make the globe a better place.
