COVID-19 has made us acknowledge that economic, environmental and human health are all inter-connected. The fashion industry is undergoing a transformational phase with increasing levels of environmental consciousness that consumers have come to appreciate. Fashion leaders are constantly trying to change age old habits in order to take the essential steps towards a sustainable environment.
The apparel industry is the second-biggest consumer of water with a staggering wastage of this precious resource with every garment taking about 50-70 litres of water to produce. Due to trends like fast fashion, a lot of raw material ends up being wasted because of over purchasing of stock, lower sales or inefficient processes throughout the production lifecycle. This waste impacts the environment significantly.
Here, at BlueKaktus, we leverage AI & ML for improving efficiency that leads to sustainable solutions. We enable retailers to buy closer to the market which eliminates the risk of dead stock lying at retail warehouses. It is achieved by the prudent material resource planning which saves cost as the inventory levels are kept low. This is good for the environment.
