The fashion industry contributes significantly to environmental issues

👗 Did you know that the fashion industry contributes significantly to environmental issues? 🔥 It generates over 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions and produces 20% of wastewater annually. 🌍 The fast fashion trend leads to excessive clothing production, depleting valuable earthly resources such as fossil fuels and cotton. 🛠️ But here's a solution: By producing fewer clothes and extending their lifespan through recycling, we can make the fashion industry more environmentally friendly. ♻️ Recycling not only allows us to reuse materials but also lowers production costs, as fabric is a major expense. 📖 Learn more about how clothes can be recycled in this insightful article 👇 :
