Our wardrobes and clothes drawers are overflowing with plastic! It’s estimated around 65% of clothing globally is made from synthetic materials like polyester and nylon which are derived from petrochemicals, a product of the fossil-fuel industry. And with some natural crops being very thirsty and the manufacturing processes creating a lot of waste, there’s a huge amount of carbon, water and plastic you can cut out your life by looking at your fits.
It’s long been known that the fashion industry is one of the worst culprits for poor working conditions and labour laws. Our verified eco-friendly alternatives will often mean better treatment for people, too.
