The textiles industry is one of the largest polluting industries in the world contributing to 10% of all global carbon emissions and twenty-one billion tonnes of industrial waste. The dyeing and finishing processes used in textiles mills account for almost 20% of the global industrial water pollutants found in water supplies.
Now more than ever, we are aware of our environmental impact and the devastating effects of climate change for generations to follow.
ILIV are committed to minimising the impact of their business on the environment. Their operational focus areas are recycling and waste management, energy consumption and carbon emissions.
Our priority is to minimise our environmental impacts by reducing both the carbon intensity of our activities and the natural resources we use, through the development and operation of good business practices.
Through working with suppliers, ILIV are able to reduce the environmental impact of the products sold, identify opportunities to further improve the sustainability of packaging and reduce its use, and aim to increase the amount of waste diverted for recycling and identify opportunities to minimise the waste produced.
The Sustainable Plains collection spans three hundred thoughtfully developed, textured fabrics across sixteen varying bases from corduroy to herringbone weaves using a variety of sustainable yarns including recycled polyester, bamboo viscose, BCI cotton and organic cotton and linen content.
