Fast and disposable fashion
We need to educate people on the effects upon the environment of fast and disposable fashion. This should start in schools, particularly secondary schools, to encourage citizens into developing good habits when young, such as swapping clothes and buying pre-loved. They will take this message home to their parents and influence them. If it is possible, it would be good to divert some of the gst charged on clothes towards a Climate Change mitigation fund.
Why the contribution is important
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has calculated the fashion industry produces 10% of global carbon dioxide emissions every year, while it is estimated to use around 1.5 trillion litres of water annually.
