5 Sustainable Trends to Watch in 2022

by Louise W. Rice

Nowadays, sustainability has taken center stage. People have understood that the planet’s health is as important as human health. With the start of the new year, we can expect the continued and increasing adoption of sustainable alternatives in different industries to create a more sustainable way of living. People are shifting to eco-friendly, non-GMO, and recyclable products for the wellbeing of our external environment as well as for our own personal increased overall wellbeing.

Both COP26 and COVID-19 are amongst the inflexion points that have contributed to this urgent shift. One of the main concerns raised in COP26 was the depletion of water resources in its use in different industries. Currently, the fashion industry uses colossal volumes of water to dye fabric. However, some new production processes and revolutions are already making their way into that industry.

1. Recyclable Textiles

Recycled clothes are a great choice for anyone who wants to create an ethical wardrobe and adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. There is already a move towards recycling synthetic materials like viscose, polyamide, polyester and rayon.

Companies have also implemented the idea of pulling apart old clothes made from natural materials like wool and cotton and spinning the fibers back into yarn to make new fabrics.

2. Renting Fashion

Rather than buying items of clothing for one special occasion, there is now the possibility of renting out clothes. Reducing the clutter in your wardrobe and reducing the overall fabric to make many versions of the same pieces of clothing. This also allows those who have a love for fashion to keep up with the latest trends without breaking their bank!

3. Metaverse Fashion

Virtual fashion is also expected to boom with the launch of Metaverse. NIKE’s purchase of their first virtual shoe company, RTFKT, is a good example of what to expect.

People have become accustomed to spending time at home, with the introduction of this new virtual alter dimension, this is bound to increase. People will begin to have ‘virtual’ reactions through which they can showcase their virtual fashion trends. In addition, there is an entire industrial complex that will cater to the dressing needs of avatars.

4. Product Passport and Transparency

Product Passport is another trend that will grow in 2022. More companies are putting scannable QR codes, RFID chips, or metal plates on their products. This gives consumers the ability to understand what they are buying and the process of how it was made, while also forcing businesses to ‘compete’ with each other and ensure that these practices are adhered to in the hope of retaining new customers.

5. The Capsule Wardrobe

Having a capsule wardrobe is another way of boosting sustainability, mastering your personal style while curating your closet. Capsule wardrobes are currently gaining popularity both for sustainability as well as the minimalist trend that is currently making its rounds. Contrary to fast fashion, people are now stripping down their wardrobe to items that suit their style and their body, creating a more personal and sustainable look and giving more importance to the clothes you wear daily.


There are plenty of renewable and sustainable trends in the fashion industry that look set to grow in 2022 in ways that we would not have thought possible just a few years ago. The rise of technology has clearly allowed many industries to make this change to a more sustainable way of living by reducing operational costs. For example, the ability to work remotely has heavily reduced the need for travel, just as the online games found at Platincasino can be enjoyed from any location.
