Here’s something we didn’t realize until recently: what you wear impacts your health and the world around you.
In the nearly $1 trillion clothing industry, waste abounds from the estimated 15 to 20 percent of fabric trashed on the cutting-room floor, unsustainable material sourcing, massive carbon emissions when transporting products from manufacturing centers, gallons upon gallons of wasted and polluted water during washing and dyeing, as well as wildly excessive packaging, tagging, and storage. Fashion choices matter to everybody, not just models, magazine and style mavens.
That’s why we’re challenging teams to reduce waste and increase sustainability in our clothes. Take a look at this quick vid we made that shows you all that goes into our fashion choices – with a sexy twist. See if you have what it takes to Trim the Waste of Fashion.
