Buy Less, Demand More
You have the power to change the world by how you live and what you buy.
The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world, just after the oil industry.
Only 15% of our clothing is recycled or donated, which means 85% of our fashion ends up on landfill sites.
The fashion industry is the second most water-intensive industry in the world, consuming around 79 billion cubic metres of water per year. To put that in perspective, it takes 2,700 litres of water to make the average cotton t-shirt and that’s enough drinking water for one person for 900 days.
What we really need is a fundamental change in how we consume. We’re all conscious of what we eat now, but we need to become more conscious of what we wear.
Demand quality that will last, repair it to wear each garment more and recycle the fabric at the end of the garment’s life rather than throwing them away. Support companies that care for their people and the planet.
Wear, repair, recycle, repeat.
