Why You Should Quit Fast Fashion


Quit fast fashion! The future is slow, fair, ethical, eco-friendly and cruelty-free. Slow fashion is the alternative to fast fashion. Join the movement promoting a fairer and an environmentally friendlier approach to fashion.

Buying less and higher quality should be the norm. Pick second hand clothes, locally as much as possible, and garments with a longer lifespan you can wear again and again. I know this might be difficult. It can be confusing at time. So where do you start? Between sustainability, eco-friendly, fair trade, ethical and slow, there are so many aspect to new fashion to pay attention to.

A few years ago, I did not pay much attention to the clothes I was buying, where it came from or who made my clothes. Now I have decided to dive into ethical fashion to change this industry who is responsible for huge costs to the environment, to human and animal lives.

The clothing industry is still growing globally and responsible for around 10% of global carbon emissions. It is the 2nd biggest polluter after the oil industry. And there are many different environmental threats within the fashion industry, such as air and water pollution, toxic chemicals, huge textile waste and endangered wildlife. Please try to make more mindful choices regarding ethical fashion and sustainable living.

Slow fashion is part of a textile revolution. We have to rethink the whole system of fashion, how we buy our clothes and what we do with them once we can't wear them anymore. Let's take in consideration how the fashion industry and our buying choices impact all present and future living species on earth.

The fashion industry promotes and profits from pollution, labor exploitation and inequalities. Overproduction is a major issue and this has to stop.

Fast fashion is popular because it is cheap, accessible, and sourced globally. But when done in massive scale, it is very harmful to the environment, unethical and a huge problem. The fashion industry should at all time respect diversity, global resources and human living conditions. Choose slow fashion!
