Moss Bros have released a range of sustainable suits- the eco suits, which is a piece of excellent news for the fashion world and our planet. There is a climate crisis, and sustainability is urgent in this world. It’s no argument that there are more and more people becoming aware of having to have ecological clothing choices. However, it’s not easy to have an ethical wardrobe when there isn’t a lot of options available. Fast fashion, instagram culture, and the idea you can’t rewear clothes have definitely had a big part to blame for the pollution our clothes are causing. However, Moss Bros is not one of them, with their amazing view on the future of fashion and their new range of eco suits, making such a highlight and change to this industry that many should follow.

Why is sustainable fashion so important?

It’s pretty simple, our planet is dying, and we aren’t helping by the clothes we put on our back, and a lot of people aren’t aware of it either. It’s only just being conversed about, and still not enough, so with brands like Moss Bros’ coming out with eco options, and educating us about the crisis, is the way it needs to be done. Did you know that fashion is the second most pollutant industry in the world behind the oil industry? It’s crazy. Or what about the fact that plastic pollution is currently one of our greatest threats, every second, a double-decker busload of plastic waste is dumped in developing countries. Then it takes absolute decades, possibly even centuries to break down, releasing harmful chemicals as it does. It’s not good. So Moss Bros’ solution is to find plastic alternative and recycle what is already in circulation. And they are succeeding brilliantly.

So how are the eco suits sustainable?

From the lining to buttons and packaging they have selected every single element because it’s recycled or made sustainability- also sometimes it’s both, which is a big win. But they promise that sustainability doesn’t compromise on quality, you will still get the same high-quality Moss Bros suit, but with less waste going in the sea, meaning a happy planet, and happy animals, and happy consumers.

Some facts about the suit are-

  • A single eco suit reuses up to 45 plastic bottles.
  • Its fibres will not emit harmful chemicals.
  • They have selected suppliers known for sustainable manufacturing.
  • It has recycled polyester shoulder pads, sleeve head roll and chest foam that are REACH-compliant
  • The thread has been made from 100% recycled polyester yarns.
  • Corozo nut buttons are 100% natural material.

And that’s only a few of the facts out of many, and you can find out all the details on the Moss Bros website.

So let’s hear about the suits.
