After oil, the fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world. Whoa. #FastFashion
Surprising, right?! But, when you break out the production, manufacturing and transportation of fashion - and multiply it by the quantity purchased - fashion uses a shocking amount of water and land, produces greenhouse gas emissions, and ultimately creates a lot of landfill and incinerator waste when clothes become outdated every few seasons.
So, maybe just pause as you purchase and consider buying less.
