Out of Stock: Understanding Why Sustainable Brands Choose Not to Restock
Have you ever gone to buy your favorite product from a brand you love, only to find it's out of stock? Frustrating, right? But have you ever stopped to wonder why brands don't always restock products? It turns out there are many factors that influence a brand's decision to restock—or not. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the reasons why brands choose not to restock, and what it means for both the business and the consumer. Why does Tai Swim Co never restock anything? Mostly because making something that doesn’t need to be made goes against the basis & definition of environmental care, but there are few other special reasons why small batch everything is better too 🏽 Check it out:
🌳 Reducing Waste: Small batch swimwear production helps to reduce waste by minimizing excess inventory and overproduction. This means less fabric, materials, and energy are used, resulting in fewer resources being wasted and less pollution.
🌳 Lower Carbon Footprint: By producing in small batches, there is less transportation required to move products, and this helps to reduce the carbon footprint of the brand.
🌳 Supporting Local Economies: Small batch production often means that products are designed locally, supporting local communities and reducing the need for majorly distanced shipping and transportation. I still walk to Bikini Bird & my other local retailers every time I drop off a wholesale order — reducing my personal time using gasoline is a high priority always.
🌳 High-Quality Production: Small batch production allows for more attention to detail and quality control. This means that products are made to a higher standard, with fewer defects or errors, and therefore have a longer lifespan. No planned obsolescence here ⭐️
🌳 Increased Transparency: Small batch production allows for greater transparency in the production process. I can share more information about where and how products are made, which hopefully builds trust with you and encourages more sustainable shopping habits.
Overall, small batch swimwear production can help to promote sustainability in the fashion industry by reducing waste, supporting local economies, and promoting transparency and high-quality production.
