Climate Positive Textiles & Clothing with MATEREVOLVE
The price of fast fashion
Fashion is commonly quoted as the “second worst polluting industry” in the world with many facts highlighting the negative impacts to air, water, land, animal and human health.
Fast fashion has become more prevalent:
Clothing is produced on shorter time frames with new designs appearing every few weeks to satisfy demand for the latest trends
It is estimated that there are 20 new garments manufactured per person each year.
Consumers are buying 60% more than 2000
Garments are worn less and disposed of quicker
Increased consumption creates more waste in every form, from pollutants, to the depletion of our resources.
With more emerging science and access to information than ever before, how can we build textile and clothing systems that support healthy living systems?
How can we incorporate new learnings from regenerative agriculture, science on the impacts of climate change on the ocean, integrate circular thinking, and innovate material systems fast enough to meet the climate imperative?
