Fast fashion is bad news for everyone- the workers, consumers, and of course- the planet. Everyone knows it, but the market share held by fast fashion continues to grow, as do the problems caused by it.

Did you know?

  • 20,000 litres of fresh water is used to make a cotton t-shirt and a pair of jeans. This is enough water for one person to live on for 27 years!
  • 85% of plastic in the ocean is due to micro-fibres from synthetic clothing.
  • The fashion industry is responsible for over 10% of the worlds entire carbon footprint and this is due to exceed 25% by 2050.
  • 1.3 billion tonnes of carbon emissions are produced every year in manufacturing new clothing.
  • Almost 70 million barrels of oil are used each year to make polyester.

One of the key reasons for its continued growth is a simple one- price. With the cost of living continuing to rise, the amount of money left after expenses to spend on clothes, is falling. Whilst there are great sustainable fashion manufacturers out there, the cost of something as simple as a T Shirt can be more than ten times the price of the fast fashion alternative. So whilst many would love to purchase sustainably, the cost to do so is a barrier.

Luckily, there is an alternative- that is both sustainable, and budget friendly!
