Support Local

The past couple of years have been tough on the global economy, and the garment industry has been especially hard hit. However, amidst the challenges and uncertainty, there’s never been a more important time to support local businesses. Colony Streetwear is a great example of how supporting local can make a difference in a struggling economy and a hard-hit industry.

One of the most important reasons to support local businesses in this difficult time is the economic impact. By purchasing from local businesses, you’re supporting the local economy and creating jobs in your community. This can have a ripple effect, as the workers and suppliers you support are then able to support other local businesses themselves. This can help to build a stronger, more resilient local economy that can weather the challenges of a global downturn.

This industry has been hit hard by the pandemic, with many factories shutting down and workers losing their jobs. By supporting local suppliers and garment workers, you’re helping to keep the industry afloat and preserve the livelihoods of those who depend on it. This is especially important in Sri Lanka, where the garment industry is a major source of employment and foreign exchange earnings.

Another important reason to support local businesses is the environmental impact. By sourcing materials and labor locally, you’re reducing the carbon footprint associated with transportation and shipping. This helps to lower your environmental impact, as well as your shipping and transportation costs. Additionally, by working with local suppliers and garment workers, you can develop more sustainable and eco-friendly production processes that benefit both the environment and the local community.

At Colony, by sourcing materials and labor locally, we’re supporting the local economy, helping to strengthen the garment industry, reducing your environmental impact, and preserving cultural heritage and traditions. So let’s all do our part to support local businesses and build stronger, more resilient communities.
