Andromeda District Supports Levi Jeans
Andromeda District is responsive to what is happening in the world right now. We have found an effective solution to climate change by creating, installing, and maintaining vertical garden walls. The natural and serene beauty of a forest can be replicated anywhere, indoors or outside, and can be as large or small as your imagination. Our projects are not just visually mesmerizing and a symbol of a commitment to environmental change. Just 5 minutes next to one of our living walls can lower your blood pressure, improve the quality of the air you breathe, and reduce your stress. We feel better, work better, and our emotions stabilize. Green walls bring life to concrete and steel, plants bring color and design to empty spaces, and when you invest in sustainability, different design trends are unimportant because nature is eternal and always in style.
Levi Jeans, the company that created the first pair of jeans in the 1890’s, is an iconic American institution that is also responsive to the times and culture of the day. Currently, approximately 13 million tons of textile waste is generated every year and about 15% of fabric intended for clothing ends up as waste on the factory floor. To combat this alarming statistic, Levi Jeans has announced plans to become the first in the fashion industry to make all of its products from 100 percent recycled cotton by 2025. In just six years, the clothing company will cease its use of cotton sourced from cotton fields in favor of recycled old clothes and will produce the first jeans made from regenerated post-consumer cotton waste.
We are proud to work with Levi Jeans to create an organic, life-affirming green vertical garden wall to give their customers and staff a chance to breathe deeply, de-stress, and be delighted with the beauty and timelessness of nature. Our installations, like Levi jeans, are environmentally-friendly and can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. Our green garden wall is the perfect touch for an iconic American institution that honors the everyday man and woman. Like Levi’s, if you have one of our walls, you are demonstrating your commitment to environmental health.
To create large-scale change in the environment and society, we must study what we are consuming. Currently, we get raw materials and energy from nature to produce goods or services and most of these resources are not renewable or regenerate very slowly. During the process of extracting raw materials, harmful chemical substances are introduced into the environment. To avoid this outcome, we sometimes outsource this process to developing countries that have few legal requirements related to toxic by-products being generated. Consequently, the price of a product does not reflect the environmental and social cost of producing it.
Planned obsolescence is the basis of sales growth. Products are only intended to last for a certain period of time so people will consume more of them. Waste levels have doubled over the last 30 years as a result of this practice. In the last several years, governments have begun incentivizing companies to produce their products responsibly and respectfully and are legislating stricter laws so that companies are aware of their impact on the environment. More and more, consumers are demanding responsible products and making informed purchasing decisions. Companies are designing products responsibly and changing their production system to one where obsolete products are repaired and re-used.
