The state of the fashion industry

The fashion industry is one of the largest and most intensive in the expenditure of natural resources, it’s responsible for 4% of greenhouse gas emissions, and 20% of industrial water pollution globally,

Ancient forests are being cut down to create leather and textiles, animals are regularly mistreated, and clothes that have never been sold end up in landfills.

The workers face social inequality, dangerous environments, putting at risk your health and even life!

People still regularly die in fires, accidents or poisoning in factories.

Although wages have increased in some countries where clothing is produced, many people in the supply chain still earn very little and struggle to pay for the most basic necessities of life.

Women in the textile sector suffer from wage inequality, often face sexual harassment and violence in the workplace.

All of these problems underscore the need to drastically rethink how the entire system works.

We must work towards real transformative change if these issues are to become a thing of the past.

We believe that with systemic and structural change, the global fashion industry can lift millions of people out of poverty and provide them with decent and dignified livelihoods.It can conserve and restore our living planet earth and It can bring people together and be a great source of joy, creativity and expression for individuals and communities.
