Harmonica Sustainable Approach
Our vision is to shift the way people think about fashion. To recognize the ethical and environmental benefits of acquiring higher-quality goods at a reasonable price developing sustainable models of production through a multicultural partnership is crucial for communities and our planet.
- Team Work
Fast fashion is damaging not only the environment but the people who produce it. We consider slow fashion as the only sustainable future for the industry and the planet. Of the one hundred billion clothing items produced annually, 20 billion textiles end up in landfills every year. Some soles may last up to 1,000 years in a landfill and about 90% of shoes still end up in landfills. One way to prevent this would be to recycle them. We are committed to creating hand-crafted, high-quality products that are non-polluting and sustainably sourced.
WE USE SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS
Although Harmonica is focused on sustainability, we are aware we are far from perfect. We can do better together.
We understand that a Sustainable business must meet “the needs of present generations without compromising the needs of future generations.” However, it is impossible to be a sole source of sustainability without the support of other businesses, organizations and our society.
People and organizations consume resources and create waste, so in a perfect world, we all should work towards building businesses and communities based on a “circular economy” which allows minimal waste (or even zero waste) and cost-effective benefits. It is a vision and proposal that involves a lot of effort, connections and resources.
However, we recognize the benefits and impact that conceives and we are committed to not only dreaming about it but accomplishing it.
