We consume fashion at a faster rate than any other point in history. Every years, brands manufacture more than 100 billion garments. Can you imagine that number for a second? Our planet has a population of 7 and a half billion. Do the math.

The fashion industry continues to tempt us to buy more and more clothes. There are always new ranges, new styles, new colors, and so on.

But what is the price we pay for this behavior? The so-called fast fashion takes a toll on the environment. Clothes production can cause pollution. Yes, that is a side effect of our attitude towards clothing.

What does the fashion world does to reduce pollution? Fashion uses a lot of precious natural resources. And they also create mounts of waste. Often, this waste goes to landfill.

This documentary takes a look at everything we can do to reduce the fashion’s environmental impact.
