The textile industry produces roughly 10% of all humanity's carbon emissions, additionally contributing as the second-largest consumer of the global water supply. Oceans and waterways are contaminated with chemical and plastic pollution waste from the outputs of our textile production. Equally alarming, around 85% of textiles are wasted and directly sent to landfills each year. Calling inspired advocates, fashionistas, and catalysts for climate change!
