In a world where 2.5 billion disposable cups are thrown away yearly, and documentaries like Netflix’s “The True Cost” remind us that fashion is the second dirtiest industry in the world, eco brand ArmedAngels have made it their mission to change that by making fashion eco and fair at every point of production.
Globally, we are asking more questions about sustainable products and exactly where what we wear was made. More and more brands are listening to these questions and taking part in the fashion revolution by starting ecological diffusion lines of their brands or introducing sustainable processes to their manufacturing.
These guys aren’t sheepish about their progress, and with the stamp of approval from three independent organisations: the Global Organic Textile Standard, Fair Wear Foundation and Fairtrade, it’s clear they mean business. Armed Angels are true heroes in the sustainable and ethical market and employ sustainability managers to ensure that ethical standards are kept on top of in each warehouse. This means no child labour, honest wages and the use of only organic substances in each warehouse.
They also work to help farmers go organic. The soil on a farm has to be turned for 3 years to be certified as organic, so for many, it can be too costly to make the change and would often be overlooked without this assistance. ArmedAngels are making waves not only when it comes to their own place in the fashion eco-sphere, but are paving the way for others too.
The Chapar is honoured to be working alongside ArmedAngels adding to our roster of Eco-Friendly Brands which include Knowledge Cotton, AMOV Apparel, 40 Colori and Swims.
