When you hear the term “environmental waste” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Did you think of the fashion industry? If so, you’re on the right track. In this episode, we’re breaking down the ways the mass production and consumption of clothing has quickly become one the leading causes of pollution in the world. Warning: you’re going to hear the F word a lot: fast fashion! Don’t worry, this episode isn’t all doom and gloom, although we do examine the humanitarian and environmental impact of fast fashion, we’re also sharing some practical solutions that will help make this world a better place. Hint: thrifting is one of them.
