HOdo, a Chinese clothing company, has announced that it has created and exported the country’s first batch of carbon-neutral clothes, therefore contributing to the development of a sustainable clothing ecosystem.
According to HOdo, the carbon emissions associated with the clothing’s manufacture, which included approximately 11,000 pairs of swimming trunks sent to the United States, were offset by afforestation efforts, which help absorb carbon dioxide by producing a forest carbon sink.
HOdo Group, the brand’s owner, stated that it began artificially cultivating yew trees in east China’s Jiangsu Province in 1997. It currently boasts the largest yew seedling base in the country, covering more than 165 hectares of woodland. According to the company, it has given carbon-neutral labelling, carbon asset management, and carbon footprint services to over 20,000 Chinese businesses.
Last Friday, China’s national carbon market began for trade, a key step toward reducing the country’s carbon footprint and meeting its objectives of peaking carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and attaining carbon neutrality by 2060.
