The Green Gypsy: Waste Not, Want Not

Did You Know?:  

$1 out of every $10 we spend pays for packaging. 

Packaging makes up 1/3 of our waste by weight & 1/2 by volume. 

Packaging accounts for 50% of all paper produced in North America, 90% of all glass, and 11% of aluminum.

Recycling one aluminum can saves an amount of energy equivalent to half that can filled with gasoline.

In New York, enough garbage is collected Daily to fill the Empire State Building. 

Every year we dispose of 24 million tons of leaves and grass clippings, which could be composted to conserve landfill space.

The United States generates approximately 208 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) a year. That is equivalent to 4.3 pounds per person per day.

What does more than 50% of the population do to resolve this problem? NOTHING.

Despite the continuous pollution in the world, many Americans are set to do nothing about it because they think that "Eh, it'll magically go away." And while we here at Gypsy 05 would love for that to happen, it won't.

The fact is that while people wait for this waste to disappear, other Americans (and people around the world) continue to add even more waste to our planet. At Gypsy 05, our goal is to be the exception to those people who don't take part in saving our environment. We try to set a strong example in the fashion industry for going green. Not only are our garments made locally in the U.S., but we also use eco-friedly dyes, natural fabrics, and our packaging hardly takes up anything.  At Gypsy 05 we are dedicated to promoting a healthy Earth by reducing the carbon footprint and impact on the environment is as much as possible. Our solar-powered dye house does it's part with eco-friendly dyes and prints, & the warehouse does its part with using the least possible packaging, reusing as many boxes as possible to hold the inventory, recycling bags, cups, plates, anything and everything.

Join us in our efforts to be eco-friendly! Do your part, at home, at work, and even while you do your favorite thing in the world: Shopping!

Shop eco-friendly, shop Gypsy 05
