The National : JULY - AUGUST 2016
THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL DRYCLEANER & LAUNDERER JULY AUGUST 2016 27 – in just a single year! Most of all, their garments are designed and developed with longevity in mind, not landfill, and it’s their desire to see their garments last and last. New York society event of the year, the Met Gala, brings together the who’s who of film, fashion, music and art. With a theme this year of Manus X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, actress and Gen-Y trend setter Emma Watson turned heads in a gown made entirely from recycled materials. The stunning creation was a collaboration between herself, Calvin Klein and Eco-Age, a company which helps businesses introduce sustainable solutions into their workflow. And now eco-friendly fashions can be completed with one hundred percent eco- friendly bags. The Earth Bag by Hamilton Perkins is a travel bag created out of nothing but recycled plastic bottles and vinyl repurposed from billboards, guaranteeing that each bag is not only 100% eco, it’s also 100% unique. As well as reducing the production of plastic, Hamilton Perkins claim these bags also cut carbon emissions and water usage. It’s not just dry cleaners who see the benefits of going green. Fashion designers and developers are leading the charge for a more sustainable, environmentally focused fashion industry, reaching consumers at every level of the sartorial ladder. Like minded dry cleaners remain at the forefront of industrial innovation.
