The fast fashion industry causes a series of environmental problems, including water pollution, carbon emissions, plastic production, and waste. The environmental issues of fast fashion are directly and indirectly linked to the climate and ecological crisis. High carbon emissions and changing environmental conditions caused by water pollution, plastic production, and waste exacerbate climate change.
We value a sustainable fashion industry that incorporates nature to decrease negative impacts to our environment (eg. uses sustainable fabrics to reduce water pollution).
We envision a world where clothes are well made and long lasting
We envision a fashion industry that uses sustainable fabrics and dyes, and would employ millions of people in well-paying jobs focused on design, clothing recycling, and upcycling.
In this future, natural resources are more cherished - less land devoted to cotton production or bamboo plantations, little pollution coming from those lands or factories
We do imagine a world where fast fashion is no longer a culprit of environmental degradation but a leading example of ecological stewardship.
