Fast fashion & sustainability. Match or natch?
Ah, the "we need to talk" section.
Sustainability and fast fashion don't go hand-in-hand. To put it simply: fashion pollutes and fast fashion pollutes, well... faster.
However, Mono B is up to the challenge.
Some of our items were constructed using either 100% recycled polyester or 100% recycled nylon (and woven with an elastic fiber such as spandex or Lycra).
We've sourced our 100% recycled polyester from one of the few companies in the world able to infinitely recycle polyester fiber without causing the loss of quality by using ECO-CIRCLE™ technology.
Our 100% recycled nylon fibers save energy up to 8.5% and water up to 84%, whilst reducing up to 77% of CO2 emission.
But there's more that all of us can do.
Small things grow to bigger things.
Take good care of your clothesYou may not believe it, but even at our price point, each Mono B piece was created to last for years. Make sure you follow the wash instructions so you can wear your favorite Mono B item as long as possible. And remember, air-drying is always best, for both the environment and the apparel.
Donate & resellIf you have a Mono B item you no longer wear but is still in a good condition, don't just let it sit in your closet collecting dust. Give it to a friend, a family member, or donate it.Some thrift stores are affiliated with a cause, find one that you believe in. You can even resell your pre-owned items. A little trivia: some of the biggest fashion brands began selling previously owned clothes.
Reuse & upcycleYou don't need to be supercreative or have a sewing machine to turn a pair of leggings into a cleaning rag, and no, we don't mind! If your favorite Mono B leggings have shown some wear and tear, give them a second life by turning them into something new, like scrunchies or do-rags.
