When taking into account sustainability, we also need to realize what are the environmental challenges and problems that are causing this distress. It is important to address as an industry, where the state of the planet is? And also, how we can shift as a fashion industry to change the current path we are on?
Just like us, a strong partner of SFSFWI, the Ethical Fashion Forum is here to produce great change and develop educational tips about the environment, planet and land. When thinking about the land it is important to consider how textiles are made and if they are done in a sustainable way?
