A short video posted on Sustainable Brands tells the story of how the Nike Making app, made available industry wide, is helping designers and creators at the start of the value chain make more informed choices about the most sustainable materials, and the ripple effect its having on the manufacturing process.
“The global apparel industry will soon produce more than 400 billion square meters of fabric annually. Concerned about the potential impact of this scale of production and to help its designers make more sustainable choices to mitigate this impact, Nike developed the MAKING app (currently for iOS). MAKING is a user-friendly reference guide that allows designers to compare the impacts of materials based on the Nike Materials Sustainability Index.”
