Fast Fashion How It Impacts The Environment

The annual production of over 80 billion garments

 

Consumes a huge amount of natural resources.

 

In this age of fast fashion, companies are producing excessive clothes to meet the rising demands of people.

 

The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world, after oil industry.

 

Did You Know it takes 2700 liters of water to make on the t-shirt.

 

Textile factories dump untreated, toxic water into the rivers, putting the aquatic life at risk.

 

The wastewater contains lead, arsenic and mercury which are detrimental to both marine animals and people living by the river banks.

 

What makes the matter worse is that people are not only buying new clothes but are disposing them of at a faster rate as well!

 

According to thred up’s annual resale report,

 

the average American throws away 70 pounds of clothing each year.

 

Sending huge amounts of garments to the landfills and contributing to increasing greenhouse gas and other hazardous chemical emissions.
