What’s in your wardrobe

Clothing and the fashion industry has a huge impact on the environment, said to be second only to the oil industry! This includes impacts through chemically and water-intensive growing of cotton, factory water use and air and water pollution, microfibers from washing synthetic fabrics getting into waterways, and fast fashion items being thrown away after a short life of use.

But there are solutions, such as choosing natural and organic fibers, buying less, mending and repairing clothing, and supporting brands that use sustainable fibres and production methods, as well as fair labour practices.
