When it comes to making sustainable choices, your biggest goal should be keeping
products and trash out of landfills. Finding new ways to reuse products and extending
the life of older goods are both incredible ways to reduce your carbon footprint for the
greater good. Here at Vantage, we’ve committed ourselves to embracing the phrase
“Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” to help support an eco-friendlier future.
As a business, it can be hard to reduce your output when demands are constantly being
made for new product. However, where there’s a will, there’s a way and for us, every
small step counts. One step we’ve taken is the introduction of
Ordering. To eliminate the production of excess inventory, we’ve implemented a
system that only puts items into production once they’ve been ordered. This allows our
customers to avoid creating unnecessary, excess stock that will not be used.
During our design and construction process, the most important aspect we consider is
always quality; we want are products to hold up for years to come. We create Logogevity™
as we say, which is strong, branded apparel that’s built to last. When you opt for and
invest in quality made goods, you’re going to get a product that will encourage reuse
and withstand years of wear.
Our world is saturated and littered with garbage that needs a new life. One polluter
that we’re all familiar with is none other than the dreaded plastic bottle. According to
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, it takes roughly 450 years for a
single-use plastic bottle to decompose. To keep these bottles from sitting in our oceans
for nearly half a millennium, we’ve taken the effort to use them to create clothing
instead. Our Earthwise Collection is constructed using Repreve® Recycled Polyester
fabric, made with recycled plastic bottles. Since introducing this collection, we’ve
been able to keep nearly 500,000 bottles out of landfills. We hope to see this number
grow even more in time, as we aim to encourage a more sustainable future.
Every big change begins with one small step to make a difference. For more information
