Ethical Clothing with Janson and Drac Wigo

Dudefluencer: Ethical Clothing

Welcome everyone to another episode of the Dudecast. My name is Garrett Carlson and I hope you’re doing well. With the new year upon us, I’ve been thinking about my goals, and my plans for 2021. Obviously goal #1 is get through the end of this quarantine, and with vaccines coming out earlier this week, it looks like we might be on that path.

But one of my other goals is to be more conscious of how I’m personally affecting the environment. That includes fashion.

More than 60 percent of fabric fibers are now synthetics, derived from fossil fuels.” If those synthetic clothing items are thrown away and dumped into a landfill, they will not decay and instead release methane gas into the environment. Synthetic clothes not dumped into a landfill are thrown into the incinerator, causing more CO2 to be released into the atmosphere.

Fabric dyeing is the second largest polluter of clean water, and the fashion industry as a whole produces 20% of the Earth’s wastewater.

Enter Janson and Drac Wigo, founders of the eco-friendly clothing brand Opok. I reached out to them to chat about the benefits of sustainable clothing, what we can do to help the environment, and why men’s underwear fashion matters.

I learned a lot over these 30 or so minutes about just how dangerous and toxic clothing can be and it’s made me reflect on what clothes I want to put on my body. And maybe it will for you too.
