Streetwear 4.0: A sustainable revolution

13 March 2019 By 6 Comments

The world of fashion is becoming faster and faster.  People often wear a certain dress for an occasion, for throwing away after only one use.  Prices become lower and companies are always looking for the most convenient factories for their business.

However the last decade has been characterized by an unprecedented increase in pollution and in garbage production. Are many those who are trying to face this problem but what clothing companies are doing in order to limit the damage?

Here is a list of streetwear brands that are promoting better working condition and sustainable productions. 


This new brand from US, founded by Jacob Castaldi, has in the name itself a solid statement. The brand builds its reputation trough tree essential elements: sustainability, transparency and philanthropy. With fashion being one of the world’s 5 most polluting industries, at CHNGE they use sustainable materials in the products that they create. They always show where their lines are being produced, choosing places that have ethical politics. Finally, they give the 50% of their net profit to carefully vetted NGO. Jacob Castaldi has the goal to create a sustainable clothing company able to reach a younger target, in a market more oriented to older people.

    I have to show some appreciation to you just for bailing me out of such a setting. Because of looking out throughout the internet and obtaining ways which were not beneficial, I figured my life was well over. Living minus the strategies to the difficulties you've resolved through your entire post is a critical case, and those that would have negatively affected my career if I hadn't noticed your web page. The talents and kindness in taking care of every aspect was tremendous. I don't know what I would have done if I had not come across such a solution like this. It's possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this high quality and results-oriented guide. I won't hesitate to endorse your web page to anyone who needs and wants care about this subject matter.
