All of you are most likely familiar with the vast impact that plastic bottles and straws have on our oceans, along with the extensive amount of air pollution caused by carbon emissions, released by our vehicles. We all do our own small part to lessen pollution or to limit its effects. Some of us may recycle our plastic products when possible or car share on our way to school.


We see constant public speakers and articles detailing the intense effects of our pollution, but tell me; have you ever heard about how the Fashion industry is contributing to these things?

Fashion is providing all different types of pollution, and no one is discussing its consequences.
