FORBES – Can ‘Fast Fashion’ Be Sustainable?
By Sin To
Have you ever noticed whenever there is a fashion show in Paris, New York, London or Milano, you are able to buy the cheaper knock-offs a few days later? It’s called “Fast Fashion,” a new way to produce fashion items in a shorter period and at lower costs (and often with lower quality). While Fast Fashion has revolutionized the textile industry, it’s comes with a steep price in the form of negative impact on the environment and quality of life.
Changing a business model is one way, the other way could be to think of alternative materials for fashion items that are both sustainable and bio-degradable.
