Trends and fashion go hand in hand today in the fashion world, either on fashion catwalks, in magazines and in stores. Yet, with the constant demand for the latest fashion trends for us consumers it can lead to some serious consequences.
In today’s society and in the age of social media, we are now realising that the fashion industry is responsible for having a role in climate change, with 10% of greenhouse gas emissions contributing towards global warming. This is because of a pressured and energy intensive production, which produces 80 billion new pieces of clothing every year to be then thrown in landfills to sit there for years and years to decompose, emit methane and greenhouse gasses with only 20% of textile waste to be reused and recycled.
To help reduce waste and shop more confident and ethically with brands you trust, while still being on trend here are a few sustainable fashion trends you can follow this summer, to help you to find eco- friendly garments to last longer rather than never.
