The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. Unused clothing left in the dumpsite, materials and even bags made from animal skin. These are all unhealthy contributions that fashion does to the world.
Switching to sustainable fashion can be really of help in making sure that the Earth is still and will be a livable place. Not only that, but sustainable fashion also has a lot to offer when it comes to design, styling and even the quality and sustainability of the materials being used.
With that said, here are a few more reasons to convince you to switch to sustainable fashion or ethical clothing today.
Quality Reduces Waste
Sustainable brands focus on quality, using materials and finishes that are made to last as well as being kind to the environment. The clothing produced by fast fashion brands isn’t made to last – the aim is to get you to buy more, so why would the focus be on making quality long-lasting clothing? In choosing sustainable brands that provide quality, you can reduce your waste as well as the amount of clothing that you buy.
Saves Animal Lives
Sustainable fashion brands have started to increasingly embrace the use of cruelty-free alternatives, and there’s one for nearly every piece of fashion materials – polyester made with trash from the oceans, bags created from recycled seatbelts, plant-based compostable sneakers, silk created from yeast, and bio-fabricated vegan wool. But one of the most demanded leather alternatives these days comes from pineapples.
