Sustainability in fashion means making and buying clothes in a way that doesn't harm people or the planet. It's essential that consumers and brands shift to more sustainable practices for the health of the planet and the people living on it.
How is fashion affecting the environment?
At the moment, the majority of the fashion industry uses toxic and exploitative practices to make clothing. Too many clothes are being made (fast fashion) too quickly, too cheaply with toxic dyes and pollutive practices that harm communities, workers and the ecosystems nearby.
