Fashion Industry

 
 

FASHION IS THE SECOND MOST POLLUTING INDUSTRY ON THE PLANET

 

The last few decades has seen a rapid increase in the quick and cheap production of clothing.  High street brands copy the luxury brands at a fraction of the cost and have new designs in the stores every few weeks. Consumers love the affordability and will purchase items even if they may never wear them.  Their logic is that it is cheap and so does not matter.  Consumers are generally ignorant of the enormous impact the growth of this industry is having on the future of our planet.  We have to change their mindset.

WATER

The fashion industry is the third largest consumer and polluter of water.  An average of 710 gallons of water is used to produce just one t-shirt.  Each year, two billion t-shirts are sold worldwide. That is 1.4 trillion gallons of water just on t-shirts!

 

 

TEXTILES


Textile production uses an estimated 20 billion pounds of chemicals every year. Cotton covers only 2.5% of the world's cultivatable land, and contributes to 24% of insecticide use worldwide making it the “dirtiest” crop in the world.  An estimated 20% of global industrial water pollution comes from the treatment and dyeing of textiles.

POLLUTION

 

Only 3% of American clothing is manufactured domestically, the rest is imported from overseas.  A simple cotton T-shirt from China creates one pound of carbon dioxide emissions.

 

 

CLIMATE CHANGE

As the world population has increased carbon emissions have risen to unprecedented levels.  Carbon dioxide increases the greenhouse effect. Since NASA started recording statistical data 130 years ago, the top warmest years have all occurred after 2000.  The sea level has risen 7 inches over the last 100 years and continues to rise 3.4mm every year.  Climate change is no hoax.
