One of the most polluting industry is the world
Every year, more than 100 billion items of clothing are sold worldwide, and about 60% more are purchased than 15 years ago.
This over-consumption of clothing and fashion accessories has a name: fast fashion. This refers to a fashion that is constantly renewed, pushing us to buy more and more clothes, a phenomenon that is all the more visible during the sales period.
However, from their manufacture to their washing to their end of life, our clothes have a heavy environmental impact and the textile industry is one of the most polluting. To better understand this, we will analyse the life cycle of our clothes in a sustainable way.
