Climate changing, CO2 emissions, Global warming, etc. All this futile waste, because of some fashion clothing.
The fashion industry is the second-largest polluter worldwide just after the oil industry, and the environmental damage is increasing as the industry grows.
So, what is fast fashion at all? In the first place, fast fashion is the Mass-production of cheap, disposable clothing.
Another challenge is the chemical and gassed emissions of the fashion industry. The chemicals they use are the same as the landfills just more toxic pesticides.
Pesticides are one of the main components of our clothes. It’s used during fiber production, bleaching, dyeing, and wet processing of each of our garments.
The heavy use of chemicals is causing diseases and premature death among cotton farmers along with massive freshwater.
To prevent some of it we could choose organic fibers or sustainable brands. Lastly, we have greenhouse energy.
