Kingly’s upcycled socks helped preserve 7.6 million litres by June 2023

Together we saved 34,5 million litres of water in 2022 

We become more and more conscious when it comes to water consumption. We close the tap when we brush our teeth and take shorter showers. However, hardly anyone realises that it takes fascinating amounts of water to create the clothes on our backs. In fact, some believe it would take more than 520 years to drink all the water hidden in our closets. For example, it takes about 2 720 liters of water to make just one t-shirt. This is enough water for one person to drink for 900 days. Here are some other interesting observations – it takes:

  • 7,250 litres of water to produce one pair of jeans;
  • 375 litres of water to produce one pair of socks;
  • 3,350 litres of water to produce one hoodie or sweatshirt;
  • 850 litres of water to produce one pair of pants or boxers.

The average person has 5 pairs of jeans, 7 hoodies or sweatshirts, and 10 t-shirts or shirts. Plus, our drawers are packed with 34 pairs of underwear and 22 pairs of socks.

In light of this shocking data, Kingly empower customers to visualize their promotional products’ impact on the environment. With every order of upcycled socks, our clients can track how many litres of water and kW/h of energy have been preserved. They can also get an understanding of how the customized promotional products they are using are minimizing carbon emissions and preventing large spaces from turning into landfills.

Since the beginning of 2023, our clients have preserved 7 638 908 litres of water and 28 512 kW/h of energy. Together we have minimized CO₂ by 11 697 kg. And 1 290 m² haven’t been turned into landfills. As we see these fascinating results we want to encourage you to use more eco-friendly promotional products for your campaigns. One of the most exciting results we have had so far is preserving 24 million litres of water with a single order of our award-winning upcycled socks. Learn more about this case study here.

By trusting our brand, last year Kingly’s clients preserved astonishing 34 537 442 litres of water with 71 orders of upcycled socks. Also, 128 908 kw/h of energy have been saved. The carbon emissions have been minimized with 52 886 kg and 5833 m² have been prevented from turning into landfill. And this does not even include the orders combining upcycled and euro cotton or upcycled and GOTS organic cotton. You can see the data by November last year here.
