With 2020 coming to a close, now it’s time to reflect on how cruddy the year has been to everyone, the fashion industry included. Nobody could have predicted that sweatpants and baggy shirts would be the universal uniform for employees everywhere.

However, with 2021 just around the corner, your wardrobe from last year has probably collected dust and more moth bites than you can count. Now is the time to do a bit of shopping for the new year. But with the outbreak still at full-force, we also need to be mindful of what we purchase.

The Problem with Fast Fashion

Have you heard of Fast Fashion before? To put it simply, Fast Fashion includes the use of toxic dyes and low-cost textile. Companies pump out product after product with limited life cycles, and most of the clothing you purchased a month ago is either unfit for wear or already out of date.

The fashion industry, a multitrillion-dollar industry, has made quite a lot from Fast Fashion, but at what cost? Well, all of those clothes you don’t wear and don’t donate end up in a landfill somewhere. And because of the toxic dyes, they’re not recyclable.
