Fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries of the world. While we are slowly moving towards sustainable fashion, fast fashion has still not seen any major change.
What is the need of sustainable fashion?
The material used in making clothes, production of clothes, and it’s washing, requires huge amounts of resources and systems that aren’t friendly to the environment.
How is fast fashion a bane to earth?
Fast fashion encourages buying apparels frequently based on new weekly fashion trends. Not just the production but also the disposal of attire consumes huge amount of resources and pollutes water, air as well as soil.
What’s the solution?
The production is largely influenced by consumption. And the consumption id largely influenced by fashion tycoons. More fashion designers like Joaquin Phoenix should proudly appear on screens in clothes worn multiple times. It can largely influence individuals.
On our part, we must buy only what is required. Excess of anything is bad, stands true for fashion too. Investing in one good jeans is a way better option than buying multiple low-quality or single time wearable fashion clothes.
