It is no secret that there is a climate crisis on earth. Increasing temperatures, melting ice caps, and extreme weather events are becoming more and more catastrophic. The unpleasant fact is that the fast fashion industry has played an insufferable role in bringing us to what seems a point of no return.
Society will continue to buy clothes, however, it is important to be increasingly aware of what we're buying and from where. The most thing to do is buy second hand garments if you are unable to do so the next best thing would be to buy pieces made using recycled materials.
