THE DESIGN

CLOTHES ARE DESIGNED TO MAKE YOU FEEL OUT OF STYLE IN 1 WEEK

Instead of the traditional two seasons of clothing (spring/summer, fall/winter), fast fashion retailers have 50 - 100.

THE MATERIALS

2/3 OF ALL FIBERS USED TO MAKE OUR CLOTHING ARE COTTON-BASED

Cotton uses a vast amount of water to grow, placing substantial strain on the environment. 


THE CREATION

21 million people in the world are victims of forced labor 

Within the last 30 years, most clothing production has shifted to developing countries, predominately to Asia, in the search for cheap labour.

RETAIL

We ship everything

As clothes are manufactured, they need to then be transported globally to retailers and consumers. This widespread transportation of clothes and textiles leads to increased pollution.


THE CONSUMER

$500 billion of clothes end up in the trash annually

Only 5% of donated clothes end up benefitting another person. The rest go to landfills.
