US silk brand LilySilk launches a new Zero Waste Movement

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2022-04-04 03:01:27 – USA

Lilysilk, the world's leading silk brand based in the US, has launched its zero waste movement to raise awareness of textile waste and encourage the fashion industry to look for greener alternatives. Lilysilk is giving away a free surprise zero waste product with every purchase as part of their waste-reduction efforts. The goal of the initiative is to reduce the amount of surplus fabric on the market.

Lilysilk workers use sophisticated gear to calculate every inch of silk used in clothes, allowing them to maximize fabric utilization and avoid wastage. According to a press release, this allows the brand to create a variety of zero-waste products from the remaining fabric, including sleep caps, scrunchies, pillowcases, eye masks, and face masks.

David Wang, CEO of Lilysilk, said that Lilysilk has been looking for ways to get to zero waste for a long time, and these initiatives are a big step forward. With their zero-waste product choices, they hope to improve environmental consciousness and engage more customers. They can make a meaningful difference if they work together.

The fashion industry is responsible for 2-8 percent of worldwide carbon emissions, according to the United Nations Environment Programme. Textile dyeing is the second-largest cause of pollution in the world. Apart from the creation of clothing, its disposal is also hazardous to the environment. Textiles are tossed into landfills or burned at a rate of one garbage truck per second, with textiles accounting for nearly 9% of microplastics entering the ocean each year, according to the release.

Furthermore, the business continues to work with TerraCycle to improve its recycling program, reducing the amount of clothing that ends up in landfills. TerraCycle is a social enterprise that focuses on reducing trash, and Lilysilk items are collected and recycled as part of the relationship.
