#DangersOfFastFashion

A Deck by  Fair Wear 
2 Cards - 0 Followers
The fast fashion industry exploits both people and our planet. The supply chains of many large brands hinge on getting the highest volume for the lowest production costs. This allows for the constant updating of styles and seasons to feed rampant consumerism and the need to buy, buy, buy. Not only does this lead to a huge waste in discarded clothes as cycles of trends complete, but it also puts an inordinate amount of pressure on the people that make our clothes. These garment workers around the world - 75% of whom are women - are subjected to unsafe working conditions, harassment and poor wages. All for the sake of fast fashion. It's time people shifted their behaviour to buy less and value the clothes they have more. Doing so will alleviate the pressure both on our planet as well as the people that make our clothes.
