The fashion industry is one of the world’s biggest polluters and Australians throw out around 6,000 kgs of fashion and textile waste every 10 minutes! But it doesn’t have to be this way. Take a look at the global and local effects of fast fashion, where to shop more sustainably and ethically, and how to reduce your own impact. You’ll learn all about what to buy and where, which brands are doing better by the people and the planet, and expert tips on reducing, reusing and up cycling.
