The Fashion industry has a pollution problem. Big fashion accounts for 2% to 8% of global carbon emissions. On its current path, the industry could use up more than 26% of the carbon budget remaining if we are to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius by 2050. (@bloombergnews)
Change needs to happen at the macro level of the fashion industry, which can start with retailers sourcing sustainable materials and decarbonizing their supply chain. But we can also start, as individuals, to help reduce the damaging effects.
Here are a few ways you can help -
Choose natural fibers - cotton and wool over polyester and nylon
The materials and fabrics we buy directly impact and contribute to: consumption of water, microplastic pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, soil degradation, rainforest destruction and lastly landfill waste of epic proportions. We recommend natural materials like Cotton and Wool, instead of Polyester and Nylon (which are petroleum-based and take hundreds of years to biodegrade).
Donate, resell and repurpose!
There are numerous ways to repurpose your clothes for different needs - old t-shirts can become cleaning cloths, helping you end your reliance on paper towels. Or try making stuffed animals or dolls, t-shirt quilts, and scarves from items you already have at home.
