Let’s start here:
The fashion industry is the second-most polluting and ethically exploitative industry! Think about this, the total greenhouse gas emissions from the fashion industry (or textile production) is more than the amount from all international flights and maritime shipping annually! That’s 1.2 billion tonnes!
Did you notice that you buy clothing a lot more frequently, and you toss thing a lot quicker? That’s thanks to the fast fashion industry. We wear items 36% less than we did 15 years ago, and we toss about 50% of the items bought with in the year.
That doesn’t just cause waste, it also means you’ll end up replacing that item in your closet.
