We act for #SDGs #DVOTIO4SDGS at the #NYFW ♻️ UN Alliance aims to put fashion on path to sustainability. The fashion industry has seen a spectacular growth in the early 21st century. It is now valued at more than 2.5 trillion dollars and employs over 75 million people worldwide. Between 2000 and 2014, clothing production doubled with the average consumer buying 60 percent more pieces of garment compared to 15 years ago. Yet, each clothing item is now kept half as long. The industry has truly entered the era of fast fashion.Despite an increase in jobs,this development comes at a price. The general current states of the fashion industry can be described as an environmental and social emergency. Nearly 20 percent of global waste water is produced by the fashion industry, which also emits about ten percent of global carbon emissions. In addition, the textiles industry has been identified in recent years as a major contributor to plastic entering the ocean, which is a growing concern because of the associated negative environmental and health implications. Fast fashion is also linked to dangerous working conditions due to unsafe processes and hazardous substances used in production.
We are committed to changing the path of fashion, reducing its negative social, economic and environmental impact. #sustainablefashion #sustainability #sdgs2030 #dvotioxods #nyfwstreetstyle #nyfw2020 #modasostenible #slowfashion #newyork #artisan #handmade #cotton #streetstyle #ootd #cool #activelifestyle #streetwear
