Better fashion, better planet. It would be such a wonderful feeling if we are fashionably saving the Earth.
However, that’s not the current case. Each year, the fashion industry produces 13 million tons of textile waste. 95% of these could have been reused or recycled instead. This number alone makes the fashion world one of the biggest contributors to pollution all over the world.
Aside from waste, the production process is also lethal, with chemicals and waste killing not only the environment but human beings, as well.
Fortunately, more and more brands are being aware of these negative effects and are turning into sustainable and environmental-friendly production methods. Aside from the clothing companies, cosmetic brands are also creating products the sustainable way.
If you are wondering what wonderful brands are practicing these Earth-saving systems, check them out below!
