WHY SHOULD FASHION BUSINESSES  COMMIT TO SUSTAINABILITY?

Despite the glamour associated with the fashion industry, the sector is the second most polluting, uses vast amounts of water, and can be linked to modern day slavery, low wages and inequality.  As demand for fashion continues to rise, with the average person buying 60% more now than 20 years ago,  clothing has become the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

 

Improving the way you do business could help combat these issues.   Using innovative processes, like zero waste design or closed loop production, can lead to efficiencies within your business.  As government, industry and consumer pressure to work sustainably increases only businesses with a strategy in place will be fit for the future.
