Did you catch that? Each year, over 100 BILLION items of clothing are produced globally. 3 out of 5 items end up in a landfill within 12 months. That’s approximately 60 BILLION items of clothing that go in the trash after just a year from the initial purchase. What a waste!
BBC Earth has done an incredible job of revelling the truth behind the pollution and effect the fashion industry has on our planet. The industry’s habit for fast fashion has pushed many animals close to exstinction and has polluted our air and water.
This reminds us that we not only need a healthy planet for our survival but for our everyday inspiraiton. Where would the fashion, technology, design, you name it industry be without the influence and knowledge aquired from nature?
We can make a change! When you purchase an Elisabethan piece you are making a choice to support a healthy planet – and you get a flattering piece out of it too 😉
Elisabethan stands with BBC Earth and their mission to combat fast fashion. We are happy to take the #SustainableMe pledge….will you join us?
