Colonialism, Climate Change and Consumerism

‘’How broken is the system that a person working full-time has to buy garments that are made in exploitative conditions in order to afford them?’’

Without question, the fashion industry is one of the leading culprits of greenhouse gas emissions. Aja Barber explained in her book ‘’Consumed’’ how we got into this place in fast fashion historically and what needs to change now. She reminds us that individual choices matter amid the sobering reality. The book is a blueprint for anyone who wants to do better.

In her recent interview with Climate Punk, Aja and host Thomas Kolster had an open discussion about changes that need to be made for a more sustainable society and environment.

                This is important to show why we have to adopt circular economies and local production. The system is not broken; it is working perfectly as intended by the industry in order to maximize profits, as caring for the environment is a foreign concept to such organizations.
