The fashion industry is vigorously dynamic. However, this can be very problematic for the environment. The demonstration effect exhibited by celebrities has people adapting with the swift changing trends, increasing the demand for fast fashion. To cope with the demand, industries cut costs by using cheap material and cheap labour. Each year, fast fashion industries emit around 1.3 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases, the majority being carbon dioxide (CO2). Large landfills and water bodies are jammed with mountains of clothing waste which takes about 200 years to decompose, and the microfibres that go into the ocean can be hazardous to living creatures. In this process, most labourers are made to work for hours at low wages without any job security or safety implications. This merely shows how less value these hardworking artisans and ethics hold for large industries. All of this just for one to wear once and throw away. That’s where the need for sustainability arrives.
Sustainable living describes a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or earth’s natural resources and one’s personal resources.
