Manufacturing clothes can have severe consequences on the environment. As most textile supply chains are spread across continents and fragmented it is difficult to identify where the the damage is being done. One of the easiest and most effective solutions to shorten these supply chains and reduce the environmental footprint of textiles is producing closer to home, also known as nearshoring.
Manufy is a platform that facilitates nearshoring in Europe, which means that as a brand you will connect to a manufacturer in Europe instead of Asia for example. The shorter distance that the products need to travel is obviously better to reduce emissions, however there are several less obvious consequences that make it more beneficial to produce close to home.
It does not stop there. Once you have established the terms of your textile production, some emissions will be inevitable to prevent for the time being. As a platform we want also take responsibility for our part in the value chain.
