Sustainable Fashion. Where to start?
Our planet and humanity are suffering the consequences of a economic system that has led us to unsustainable use of our natural resources. Indeed, every day each of us witnesses how the Climate is changing and indeed our natural resources are running out and this is a Reality!
Although, The United Nations currently under the Sustainable Development goals of the 2030 agenda has marked a route that we must fulfill by 2030 towards sustainability.
“The environmental and social implications of FASHION PRODUCTION and disposal, make it of high relevance to integrate the targets of the 17 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS into this industry, to make it fully sustainable and positive for people and the ecosystem”.
In fact, the FASHION INDUSTRY and the way we consume must CHANGE. At present, this industry is responsible for a violation of human rights, child abuse, excessive deforestation, and irreparable damage to the environment. In consequence, every piece of clothing that is produced at low cost and poor quality produces waste of water, resources, and more waste to the planet.
“The aim of the commitment, is to integrate the United Nations Sustainable Goals in this industry, to tackle the environmental and social issues related to clothing production and consumption: Implementation of sustainable design strategies, promoting the use of sustainable technologies and appropriate resource management throughout the textile supply chain, proposing new business models and engaging with consumers for better consumption habits”.
WE NEED TO CHANGE NOW
On the other hand, the change has begun for this reason every time we look around us, the word Sustainability and Sustainable fashion has become a stronger movement on a global level.
For example, the new generations are now more aware of the importance of create a sustainable world. So, we must start thinking about an economic system that is sustainable and supportive.
Above all, today we can start the change towards a new model of sustainable development.

As Greta Thunberg said…
“Children and young people are among the most severely impacted by the knock-on effects of COVID-19, so it is only natural that they would want to do something about it. Like the climate crisis, the coronavirus pandemic is a child-rights crisis. It will affect all children, now and in the long-term, but vulnerable groups will be impacted the most”.
