According to Fashion Revolution, “If we want to see fashion become a force for good, we’re going to have to change the way we think about what we wear and why we wear it. We need to love our clothes more. We need to look at them as precious heirlooms and as trusted friends.”
The quick industry of fashion is a problem most of us see with one eye, even though the global greenhouse emission produced by it says otherwise. The pandemic gave us more time to sit back, read, and think about our decisions – especially regarding sustainability. While the road to sustainability isn't simple in nature, it's now more important than ever to understand what constitutes truly sustainable and ethical fashion.
