Right now the fashion industry is responsible for 10% of the world’s carbon emissions and nearly 20% of the world’s water waste, making it the second most polluting industry on the planet. It’s not just the production process that is polluting: inefficient and globe crossing transportation also adds up to the devastating mix. Did you know that a regular t-shirt travels through 5 countries before landing in your hands?
The covid-19 pandemic has given new value to digital sourcing. With cancelled exhibition fairs, manufacturers are having a difficult time being visible for new clients. At the same time, brands still need their production runs, but don’t know where to start their search for new manufacturers. With rising demand for sustainable products, finding manufacturers that work according to these standards can prove to be a challenge.As an opportunity for both ends, (sustainable) sourcing in the digital space is on the rise. According to the yearly report from Mckinsey, The State of Fashion 2020 Coronavirus update, social distancing has highlighted the importance of digital channels more than ever and lockdowns have elevated digital as an urgent priority across the entire value chain.
Manufy aims to connect EU buyers, manufacturers and freelancers in an efficient, transparent and - most importantly - sustainable way. By doing this we hope to strengthen the European economy, create more support for local sourcing, provide in quality over quantity, help manufacturers to become more conscious about sustainability and help businesses of all sizes grow while reducing their ecological footprint.
Sustainability is at the heart of Manufy. We envision a platform where conscious buyers, certified manufacturers and future-proof freelancers come together to work on projects that change the world for the better. We work together with the finest partners to reach our goals and would be happy to have you on board as well.Πάρε μέρος τώρα!
