There is a lot going on right now, so it’s no surprise that many of us are suffering from eco-anxiety - the fear of environmental damage or ecological disaster caused by, well, us. But there’s no need to feel helpless, because there are things that we can do as individuals that make a difference.
Sustainability is our only option if we are to guarantee the future of our planet. It sounds dramatic, but it is the reality.
Experts predict that we have just 12 years to prevent irreversible damage caused by climate change, also known as global warming.
Each of our personal footprints contribute to this warming, and therefore we are each responsible for helping to slow it down.
But of course, there are some big corporations and industries that are contributing more than others – and perhaps surprisingly, the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world.
