Something I’ve been learning about over the last few months is how the fashion industry is impacting the planet and it is shocking.
Did you know that the fashion industry is the second worst polluters.
I recently came across a British based brand via Instagram and got chatting with founder Amy about this exact topic and she advised I watch the documentary fashions dirty little secrets with Stacey Dooley.
Stacey Dooley travels the world to uncover the hidden costs of the addiction to fast fashion. She sees first hand how toxic chemicals are being released by garment industries into the waterways that millions of people rely on. She also visits a former, yes former sea (the Aral Sea) once one of the largest bodies of fresh water, now reduced to almost entirely dust. The cotton farms that surround this area have drawn almost all of the water out of this once idyllic holiday destination and now there are camels where there once were fish.
