Fast fashion today is the world’s 2nd most polluting industry. Americans waste almost 40 kgs of textiles every year.  A staggering 400% increase from 20 years ago. This infographic shows a better way to think about your next purchase.   So, when you’re in the mood for new clothes, take a second, think about the impact first.  Sustainable fashion is possible, first we need to reduce what we buy, then change the way we buy it. Check out how we’re helping by changing the way we buy our clothes.
