Impact Of Fast Fashion On The Planet And Workers

  • Use of toxic textile dyes, a sharp increase in water pollution.
  • The use of cheap material sheds microfibres and increases levels of plastic in the oceans.
  • Millions of litres of water wastage.
  • Erosion of soil.
  • Textile waste filling the planet.
  • The toxic dyes and plastic waste released in the water is ingested by sea life. Fake fur sold to customers who care about animals is often the real fur of cats and dogs, which is cheaper to obtain than fake/faux fur.
  • Low-wage workers, often underage, work in dangerous environments and lack basic human rights. They work with toxic chemicals which have a long-lasting impact on their bodies.
