Lane Seven Blasts Off with New Future Fleece Hoodie
Lane Seven, Los Angeles, has debuted its newest offering: Future Fleece, a 100 percent regenerated yarn hoodie.
The hoodie is made from yarn that is composed of post-consumer waste, as well as scraps left over from the cutting stage of the garment manufacturing process. Due to the yarn being repurposed, the material forgoes the dying stage, reducing energy consumption by approximately 80 percent, water consumption by approximately 75 percent, and chemical consumption by approximately 90 percent.
“We all leave an impact on the planet, so we should all play a part in cleaning up our footprint,” says Lane Seven’s CEO, Nabeel Amin. “If each of us did a little better, made things a little more wisely, think of the collective impact that could make. We have an obligation to future generations to do our part in creating manufacturing methods and products that are more responsible towards the future.”
According to the company, Lane Seven has made small but significant strides over the past couple of years and continues to seek more sustainable methods of production. In addition to removing excess waste and reducing water usage, the company also moved most of their manufacturing over to renewable energy. The brand continues to seek more sustainable and ethical alternatives for key materials. Lane Seven also supports the Better Cotton Initiative, the largest cotton sustainability program in the world.
