Avoid Fast Fashion for a Sustainable Future!

100 Billion items of clothing are produced every year, this amounts to 14 pieces for each and every human on the planet, according to

Let's fix this!

  • We discard 92 million tons

    of clothes-related waste each year! That's a garbage truck every SECOND!

    Cheap fashion is really far from that, it may be cheap in terms of the financial cost, but very expensive when it comes to the environment and the cost of human life.

Avoid Fashion with the following actions

We wear clothes for comfort and protection as well as to express ourselves. Much of our clothing is made cheaply, unethically and has a huge impact on our planet. Here are some ways you can take action on this issue:

Impacts of Sustainable Fashion Actions

Reduce Climate Emissions

Our clothes have a huge cost to the climate: a typical T-shirt produces 6.75kg C02 during production and sale.

Save Water & Waste

Reducing fast fashion consumption lowers water usage and pollution caused by the textile industry. Repairing and donating clothes minimizes textile waste in landfills.

Save Money & Buy Responsibly

Choosing quality clothes reduces the need to replace them frequently, saving money in the long run. Supporting ethical brands helps improve working conditions for those in the fashion industry.
