What's the Problem with the Fashion Industry?
Most people are unaware how damaging the fashion industry — and especially fast fashion — is to our planet.
The fashion industry is the second-most polluting industry in the world, and the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or incinerated every second.
Waste is a significant and devastating issue along the entire supply chain, and lifecycle of a garment, and because children are continuously growing, they always need new clothing.
However, there is plenty of clothing that can be reused and reworn, and just by donating one clothing item, its lifespan is extended by an average of 2.2 years, reducing waste by 73%.
At Macrae Skye, we believe that most people are not aware of these facts, and if they were, many would make different choices.
