You probably wonder, “Why another fashion company when there are already thousands of them?”
As a consumer, it’s not easy to know about how your fashion items are manufactured and what impacts they have on the environment and people (especially on the factory workers). Unfortunately, next to the oil industry, the fashion industry is considered the second largest polluter in the world (un.org), and this has a significantly negative impact on the environment. However, it doesn’t stop there, because the environmental problems together with poor working conditions including exploitative labor practices, badly built manufacturing infrastructure (biomedcentral.com), low wages and lack of unionization causes serious health, safety and economic consequences. Thus there are significant sustainability issues in the fashion industry.
