One way you can reduce your impact on the environment is by avoiding “fast fashion.” Fast fashion is clothing that is mass-produced quickly, cheaply, and with low standards. It uses excessive amounts of water and uses toxic chemicals. Fabrics are primarily made from plastic microfibers, which create more carbon emissions than cotton does. You can largely avoid fast fashion by shopping locally, seeking out sustainable clothing brands, and visiting thrift stores. Your clothes will last longer and be of higher quality, resulting in less waste and a better impact on the environment.
