Fashion manufacturing—more specifically, shoe manufacturing—comes at a huge environmental cost.
- Textile production creates 42 million tons of plastic waste every year, second only to the packaging industry.
- The footwear and garment industries together are responsible for 8% of all greenhouse gases globally.
- Shoes with a lot of small and unique parts are more complex and environmentally intensive to produce because each component must be accounted for from materials (sourcing) as well as a labor assembly perspective.
- Most shoes are made in China in coal-powered factories and then transported across the world on super-polluter cargo ships where they ultimately end up on the feet of consumers; the environmental cost of this transportation is also high.
The answer to reducing the carbon impact of textiles production is three-fold: simple designs, recycled materials, and close-to-home manufacturing:
- The average running shoe has 65 discrete components; the carbon cost of refining, preparing, and assembling that many materials and parts is significant.
- The solution: shoes and clothing of simpler design require less raw materials and labor to produce and assemble, simplifying and streamlining the manufacturing process, and ultimately lightening the carbon load of production.
- Take PSUDOS, for instance: they’re made of three parts (an insole, an outsole, and a fabric wrap), which greatly simplifies the production process.
