What caused fashion sustainability stagnant?
According to a UK government report, we will need three planets to cover all fashion production in 2030. We need to think about sustainability on this huge scale. As the researcher said, the key is not just technology but education and human behaviour. The current business model in the major fashion industries is encouraging over-consumption, over-production, and generating excessive waste. In addition to the short usage of purchased clothes, there is £30 billion worth of unused clothing in our closet in the UK. The specialist mentions that the demand for repairing, recycling, and reusing products is still limited. Do we want to sustain the fashion industry as it currently is, or do we want to live on the planet earth? If we want, we do need to take a more eco-centric perspective.
