We're a world hooked on convenient yet catastrophic single-use plastic. Today, we produce about 300 million tonnes of plastic waste every year. That's nearly equivalent to the weight of the entire human population. We're excited to announce our partnership with Hydroplast, creators of an environmentally friendly, water-soluble packaging for our garments!
We are in the midst of a war on plastic and it’s time to shift our strategy... Ninety-one percent of the plastic that has ever been created on our planet has not been recycled. It is still out there - in our oceans, in our landfills, in our communities. Guest writer Jo Lorenz welcomes Plastic Free July and explores more initiatives to help reduce single-use plastics.
9 out of 10 people worldwide breathe polluted air. It causes 7 million premature deaths annually* and many of the pollutants also cause global warming.
Air pollution is preventable, yet contributes to illnesses including lung cancer, asthma, strokes, heart disease and dementia. Each one of us play a vital role in preventing air pollution and this year World Environment Day 2019 is issuing a call to action to combat this global crisis.
But, how does Fashion play its part in Air Pollution?
In recognition of International Day of Forests and World Water Day taking place this week, we’re reflecting on fashion’s planetary impacts to share simple ways that we can collectively lessen the threat to forests and water.
