The fashion Industry impacts workers...

  • "Fast Fashion" is clothing made quickly at a very low cost to meet the growing demand of constantly changing fashion trends.

  • 97% of items are now made overseas.

  • Worldwide there are roughly 40 million garment workers. Many of whom do not share the same rights or protections that many people in the West do.

  • They are some of the lowest paid workers in the world.

  • Roughly 85% of all garment workers are women.

  • There are consistent exploitation of cheap labor and the violation of workers’, women’s, and human rights in many developing countries.

The fashion industry impacts the environment...

  • The clothing industry is the 2nd most polluting industry in the world (second after oil industry).

  • The world now consumes about 80 billion new pieces of clothing every year.

  • This is 400% more than the amount we consumed just two decades ago. As new clothing comes into our lives, we also discard it at a shocking pace. 

  • The average American now generates 82 pounds of textile waste each year. That adds up to more than 11 million tons of textile waste from the U.S. alone.
