Sustainability is not only an option but a mandatory lifestyle change that we have to comply with. All the industries, especially fashion, find out different ways to create low-cost methods for manufacturing daily and special wear every season. This exploits the natural resources of our only planet and mis balances the ecosystem harming our environment. Now that we all are locked inside our rooms, we have ample time to think and act sustainably during this quarantine period.
What makes Earth Day so special? Every day should be celebrated as Earth Day. Awareness is the only key to create a ripple and start a revolutionary change among us. We need to choose our clothes in a sustainable way. Now the real question arises. What is sustainable clothing?
According to leading fashion brands, sustainable clothing uses eco-friendly and 100% natural fiber. It reduces the use of petrochemical polymers for creating mixed low-cost fabric. Less freshwater is used to make a single garment. The entire process is done in a non-cruel way by providing every frontline worker the wage they deserve along with other facilities.
