IMPACT AWARE

I will forever love art and fashion, but another big love of mine is our environment and all that it provides us with. We are bombarded by headlines and commentary regarding how bad our impact on Mother Earth is and how tragic it will get if we don't make a change so I wanted to share some facts regarding the fashion industry with all of you:

1) Fashion is the third most polluting industry in the world

2) The global production of all textile fibers takes up to 1 trillion gallons of water, 33 trillion gallons of oil, and 20 billion pounds of chemicals per year. (Yikes!)

3) Fashion is the second largest consumer & polluter of water, more specifically the fashion industry makes up 20% of water pollution due to textile treatment & dyeing

4) Despite what some people like to deny, I believe climate change is real and the growing/ processing of cotton, leather and other raw materials as well as processing them leave large land and energy footprints
