Sustainable Fashion Key to Addressing Clothing Industry’s Environmental and Social Issues

The fashion industry is one of the world’s worst polluting industries, with its lenient regulatory environment. Especially fast fashion, affordable and trendy clothing that is typically discarded after being worn a few times or one season, creating a flawed system of overproduction and overconsumption, with materials often produced by countries reliant on gas or coal.
Furthermore, fashion brands have been repeatedly criticised for employee rights violations, which is a major global concern given that the fashion and textile industry hosts one in eight of the world’s workers (CoData, 2018; latest available data). Additionally, the industry is also known for its animal abuse.
