Fashion's Impact

To the eyes of the consumer, environmental impacts of a fashion item is rarely a concern. Little do they know that of the 1 billion pair of jeans sold worldwide annually, it takes 7000 litres (L) of water to make just one pair; nor do they know that fashion is the third most polluting industry of the world, just after oil and agriculture. Every piece of clothing comes with a cost that is hidden from us.  In order to be a conscious fashion consumer, we think it is important to be aware of the impact behind the making of your favourite t-shirt or pair of skinny jeans.
