For the first time in a long time the world has started to turn towards sustainability. We see recycling ads everywhere, straws are made of sterling silver, and organic is found in every supermarket. We see this change becoming more and more prominent in our daily investments. What does that mean for our daily attire?
There is a lot the fashion industry isn’t telling you. In fact, you probably wouldn’t know that the fashion industry is one of the leading producers of material waste and water pollution. We are living in the most highly marketed age in human history. We, as consumers, went from dressing for four seasons to fifty-two seasons.
Our constant over consumption has lead to extreme mass production in clothing thus causing massive amounts of textile waste and infamously low wages for workers. In the year 2013, 15.1 million tons of textile waste were created alone. The good news is consumers are in control of demand.
Hi, I am Ashton Gardner and I am here to change the way we see fashion forever. Fashion will never go out of style. It is an eternal industry that allows us to express ourselves on a daily basis. In my closet you will find that most of my clothes were bought second hand and if not they were a sustainable purchase. Here on my blog I hope to educate on the matter of unethical fast fashion and how we can make a difference for our people and the planet. Stay tuned.
