Is the average amount of clothing waste in North America, per year. A large portion of this number is the result of excessive inventory (mass produced) that is then discarded.
We take care to purchase our blank products and garments in reasonable amounts. Also, we donate any excess garments or defective shipments second hand to clothing drives and initiatives that benefit members of the Indigenous community in Toronto and surrounding communities.
Our company ONLY works with sustainable suppliers that actively strive to dramatically reduce the amount of water waste produced by their garment manufacturing process.
By using newer, more efficient machines, our suppliers use 7x less water than the average for clothing manufacturers, saving *approximately 109,000,000 L (109M Liters) per week. Also, any water they do use goes through a filtration system that allows it to be recycled.
*approximations: any reference made on this page/website (indicated by the * asterisk) to waste statistics and national averages are not produced by our company (Resist Clothing Company). These statistics and national averages are aggregated data, pooled from multiple online sources and/or sourced directly from our partners'/suppliers' research.
