Silk is a highly renewable resource often with less impact on the environment that many other fabrics. The silk worms feed on mulberry leaves, which don’t require the use of pesticides or fertilizers to grow.
But silk is not a local resource in most places, so processing and transportation lead to pollution. Producing silk uses a lot of resources, and to clean it many harsh and intensive treatments and chemicals are used, which can pollute the ground water.
eco.logic is always looking for ways to reduce the negative impact on the environment throughout the whole garment process. We try to decrease the water usage and the use of toxic chemicals, as well as finding more environmental friendly transportation solutions.
