The textiles industry is one of the biggest contributors to landfill waste in both the UK and the US.

The fast fashion model that has developed within our consumerist society is promoting negative consumer behaviour across the globe. Throwaway fashion has become the norm, with customers spending minimal amounts of money on a garment that has an unbelievably short life span, meaning it will no doubt end up in the bin.

It also provides some simple yet effective ways in which everyone can help.

There’s so much more words could say, but this, a very relevant and informative environmensl visualization, says is so much better...
