The pace at which the fashion industry has been misusing our planet’s resources is worrisome. I said it once and I’m not afraid to say it again, but fashion is exhausting planetary resources. And is also causing tremendous amounts of pollution. The glamorous industry accounts for 10% of carbon emissions in the world. The time of turning our backs on the environmental impact and climate change is long gone. No amount of words or visuals can emphasise enough that fashion needs to slow down immediately and adapt to sustainability. Adopting organic lifestyles is a must if you wish to save the environment. And for this, one must educate themselves correctly.
Sustainable living is a vast topic to comprehend. However, for one to shift their lifestyles to more organic ways, learning and educating oneself is the only option to bring about an effective change. But as mentioned, it is normal to feel overwhelmed with the abundance of information available out there. Social media platforms, today, have become our go-to sources for news and information. So here’s how you can make the most of it and gain all the necessary knowledge on sustainability.
