25 Jul MINISODE – Fast fashion’s dirty secret
The fashion industry has one of the largest carbon footprints. Over the past 10 years clothing has been the fastest growing waste stream in the UK, with 300,000 tonnes of clothing going to landfill or being incinerated every year.
The UK Government has now announced a review investigating the social and environmental impact of disposable ‘fast fashion’ and the wider clothing industry.
Three key areas will be considered:
- Environmental impact of the fashion industry
- Waste from fashion
- Sustainable garment manufacturing in the UK
You can have your say by submitting evidence to the investigation for the committee to consider. They have published an expanded list of these key points on their website and invited people to submit evidence by Monday 3rd September. This is an excellent opportunity to have your voice heard. Check out this advice on how to make a submission if you’d like more information.
