Fashion Goes Green
When it comes to fashion, green is the new black
Every day you wake up and get dressed. But have you ever stopped to think about the clothes in your closet? Most likely, they were manufactured in distant countries under hazardous conditions in pollution-emitting factories before being loaded into shipping containers or trucks. From there, they made the long, oil-burning journey across land and sea to finally arrive in local shops, and timately, in your closet.
Every time the fashion industry carries this process out, it's at the expense of the environment. And what's more, most of the clothes produced ─ including the ones found in your closet ─ are not made from sustainable materials. Fortunately, there is a solution to this environmental problem: sustainable fashion. Also known as eco-fashion, it is the concept of considering the environmental impact of what you wear each day.
So what exactly makes eco-fashion so eco-friendly? For one, it encourages designers to create clothing using green fabrics and fibers, such as organic cotton and bamboo. In addition, designers and manufacturers are encouraged to use responsible production techniques, which include producing materials that use fewer toxic chemicals and striving for more energy-efficient processes.
日复一日，你起床、着装， 但你可曾停下来想过衣橱里的衣服？ 那些衣服很可能来自遥远的国度，在排放污染物的工厂这种有害的环境里制造出来，然后被装入货柜或卡车， 再经过千山万水、耗油的漫长旅途，抵达当地商店，最后进入你的衣橱。
