Do you know the difference between sustainable fashion and fast fashion?
Sustainable fashion is an approach to fashion production and consumption that aims to minimize the environmental and social impact of clothing.
This type of fashion focuses on creating garments made to last, using environmentally-friendly materials and production methods while promoting fair labor practices.
Sustainable fashion may include the following:
- Organic cotton
- Recycled fabrics
- Low-impact dyes, and
- Designing clothes that can be easily repaired or repurposed
Unlike sustainable fashion, fast fashion is an approach to fashion production and consumption that prioritizes speed and affordability over durability and sustainability.
Fast fashion companies quickly produce large quantities of trendy clothing at low costs, using inexpensive materials and labor.
Fast fashion approaches can lead to issues such as:
- Pollution, and
- Poor working conditions for factory workers
