Behind the Curtain:

The Dark Side of Fashion

In 2019, each American will toss 81 lbs of clothing away. That is 26 billion lbs of pollution. The fashion industry alone dumps 92 million tons of textiles EVERY YEAR into landfills making it the 2nd biggest polluter in the world.

The poorest village on the earth thinks that society must pay more for water than we do for our clothes. Why is this important? The high demand for the latest trend or fad is a breeding ground for poor quality-made garments; water, air, and textile pollution from factories, and unchecked working standards often equal to low pay and child labor and slavery. Fashion brands who have or still use child labor include: Nike, Gap, H&M, Forever 21, Urban Outtters, Primark, Aldo, Adidas, Victoria's Secret, Walmart, and Aeropostle to name a few.

From Landfills to Oceans, From Earth to Us.
Did you know?

In 2019 small particles of nylon and cloth debris dislodged by normal laundry washing are now showing up in our water and food sources.

 

A $5 t-shirt uses 2,000 liters of water to make, only to be worn a few times before being disposed of.

 

Tons of chemicals from factories are being dumped into our rivers and oceans, killing many species of plants and animals.

With these facts in mind, you may be wondering how you can make an impact. Or, you may not think that your impact will make a big change globally.

It’s up to all of us, but it begins with YOU.
IF YOU DON’T START A CHANGE, WHO WILL?

Start making little changes today by recycling and being a conscious consumer. Even if you influenced ten people to recycle and live more eco-friendly, then those people influenced ten more people and the cycle continues, think about how much of an impact you really have on making a difference for the earth!
