This is quite an exciting new app…Nike have unveiled a new tool that enables any designer to see environmental impact of material choices and create more sustainable apparel.
As part of its commitment to designing a better, more sustainable future, Nike launches MAKING — a new app that helps designers and product creators make informed decisions about the environmental impacts of the materials they choose.
MAKING is a designer-specific, easy-to-use tool that ranks materials used in apparel based on four environmental impact areas: water, chemistry, energy and waste. Through direct comparisons, designers can quickly see how material choices stack up. The app was created by Nike with insights and feedback from students at London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion.
MAKING is available to download free of charge from the Apple iTunes store.
