One of the biggest challenges for today's manufacturers of fast fashion is society's demand for the brands to implement a collectively mindful approach to their business.
As stated in text 5: "70% of Americans believe companies should take actions to improve issues that may not be relevant to their everyday business", which comes to the fact that consumers want to see manufacturers and companies be more socially responsible.
