Green Tip; Resist Fast Fashion

Fast fashion has revolutionized the fashion industry at a cost to the environment and human rights. The fast fashion business model follows the latest trends to provide consumers chic clothing at an unprecedented rate. This quick output of garments demands a sizeable volume of raw materials fed into the fast fashion industry, creating a significant amount of waste, pollution, and degradation to air, water, and wildlife habitat. On top of the environmental exploitation that allows for fast fashion’s cheap prices, the other contributing factor is worker exploitation in low-income countries where factories are based. Workers — primarily young women — are subjected to hazardous working conditions while earning unlivable wages, despite the companies pulling in massive profits. Buy quality clothes that are meant to last, take good care of them, and resist trends.
