The average consumer buys 68 items of clothing per year, but wears each item only an average of seven times before it is discarded--and 60 percent of discarded garments end up in incinerators or landfills within one year. This year, Cuyana has stayed true to its mission of minimizing the impact of the fashion industry on the environment by creating staple apparel pieces that consumers value and wear longer. This female-led company also continues to support global craftsmanship by honoring its production commitments to small factories around the world, even amid the pandemic. The company recently launched the Zero Waste collection program, in which scraps from its production supply chain are used to create new products.
