About

The fashion industry, considered the second-largest polluter worldwide after oil, is causing significant environmental harm. This includes excessive waste, harmful chemicals, and pollution of water and soil.

To address this, Fashion.ED seeks to create clothing more sustainably, considering every stage from material sourcing to disposal. It’s crucial to use eco-friendly materials, minimize waste, and ensure fair labor practices to reduce fashion’s environmental impact and promote a more responsible industry.
