Meaning of eco-fashion (sustainable fashion)

Eco-fashion is a focus on clothing that takes into account not only the environment but the health of the consumers who will be wearing the clothes and the working conditions of the people involved with making the clothes.

Earlier fashion-conscious consumers would at least wait for six months before disposing of their clothes, however, due to fierce competition and offshore manufacturing, the turnaround time from purchase to disposal has been reduced to weeks now.
