The Business of Fast Fashion

Not only is there fast food, but fast fashion. This refers to the production of clothing that is purposefully meant to have a short lifespan so that it will be quickly replaced. Many stores carry lower quality clothing that is restocked every season, so that consumers keep buying.

However, this has an impact on the planet (during both production and disposal) and on other humans who are producing the clothing, often in inhumane conditions. Check out this terrific 3 minute video which is an informative introduction into some reasons why I am writing my book on ecofashion… Thanks to Zoe Gray for sharing.
