(No. 1), in high quality and timeless design (No. 2), in an environmentally friendly manner (No. 3) and with consideration to various ethical aspects (No. 4). Thereafter, it should be used long and well through good care, repair and perhaps redesign (No. 5). When the product is no longer desired, it should be handed in to a secondhand shop, donated to charity or handed over to friends, relatives or perhaps a swap-shop, to prolong its active life (No. 6 and 7). When the garment is completely worn out, it should be returned to a collection point for recycling of the textile material, which can hence be reused in the manufacturing of new clothes or other textile products. Ideally, instead of buying newly produced clothes, one should consider renting, borrowing or swapping clothes (No. 6), or to buy secondhand or vintage (No. 7).
We spoke on this past show about water and denim, we want to share with you this very useful article from Good On You, it provides a great explanation and a list of brands to trust.
In this program we talk about what we consider are the Sustainable Development Goals most directly related to consumption and the importance of water in our existence. In our first program we speak very generally of the SDGs, in this fourth edition we deepen a little more.
These numbers and all statistics are incredibly relevant to understand the relationship between our consumption habits and the global water crisis.
Here is the show so you can listen to all the data and issues of importance that we talked about, the studies carried out by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, a study conducted by Levi's and part of the initiative that they have taken specifically talking about water, which is the main theme of this show.
The radio show is in Spanish but now you can listen to this and all of our show in voice over.
If you find this information useful, please share.
