This April marks the 49th anniversary of Earth Month and it’s more than just using metal straws or bringing your own tote bag when you’re shopping. You can even help in conserving the environment with the clothes you wear — and that’s where sustainable fashion comes in.
Do you know that the fashion and textile industries are among the leading industries that are causing pollution to the environment? Hence, sustainability in fashion is crucial. Fast fashion serves a potential environmental hazard from the high water usage, pollution from chemical treatments used in dyeing and making clothes as well as the disposal of large amounts of unsold clothing through landfill deposits or incineration.
Sustainable fashion should be the future of fashion where clothes are made by recycled or organic textiles that are supposed to minimise their impact on the environment. Other than buying eco-friendly clothes, donating or recycling your unwanted clothing and buying secondhand garments from bundle stores are also a form of sustainable fashion. Look and feel good with these eco-chic items that you should be adding into your cart right now.
What makes it sustainable: They’re made from 100% organic cotton, wild cotton and wild rubber.
