My Earth My Denim – 4th Edition Of Denimsandjeans Vietnam
Sustainability is the need of the hour and companies have been hugely investing to create a pool of sustainable assets to save the environment and promote sustainability in the denim industry. Leading retailers including C&A, H&M, and PVH have been keeping very high standards for sustainability enabling and forcing the suppliers to take adequate measures to ensure absolute sustainability at different stages of production.
Vietnam is showing great promise because of its increasing importance due to various pacts and there are several trade agreements and treaties lined up in Vietnam with countries and group of countries and implementation of which will surely lead to a massive growth in the apparel productions and exports and that is why the entire narrative of SUSTAINABILITY becomes very relevant for Vietnam.
With an objective to take this entire discussion of SUSTAINABILITY one step ahead, Denimsandjeans has themed its Vietnam edition MY EARTH MY DENIM. Vietnam is fortunate to have started its denim industry in a very balanced way where sustainable production has been ensured in many ways due to local govt laws. This also helped and pushed the industry to invest in machines and equipment which could help make a minimum impact on the environment. With a little more push and knowledge, the industry is expected to be one of the most sustainable globally.
