The celebs don’t want you to shop! People can say that easily. Why? Because they have tons of fashion clothing lying in their wardrobe!
Joaquin Phoenix is known to wear his black Stell McCartney tuxedo to every award he attends. It is because he wants to reduce waste, said designer McCartney.
When Jane Fonda led the final Fire Drill Friday climate protest in Washington, she swore that the red coat is her last piece of clothing she will purchase.
Celebrities can afford not to buy new fashion or clothes, but they have a lot in their wardrobe already. McCartney’s brand is dependent on recycled nylon and polyester, the wool from sustainable farms, and organic cotton.
Fonda informed the Hollywood Reporter that she had got the coat from a luxury retailer Neiman Marcus (priced at $500 on sale)
Famous people never tend to wear the same outfit twice in a go. But, Tiffany Haddish has broken this chain and rocked the same white, jewel necked Alexander McQueen dress in more than three events. These events got broadcasted and filmed.
Fonda and Phoenix have always kept their subtle way of dressing. They both have been an inspiration for environmental activism in the fashion industry. Also, they have been an inspiration in the fashion industry. But how long will one tux and red coat go?
Carbon footprint of the fashion industry
The fashion industry has always been profitable all around the world. It is a business of not less than $2.5 trillion, which is exceeding day by day. The fashion industry is responsible for most of the carbon footprints amongst all the areas. Production of the fashion, it’s manufacturing, the shipping, and uses is a massive contributor to the carbon emissions.
Nearly every step contributes to the carbon output in the supply chain, which is said by an expert. When textile materials like cotton are grown, it requires a lot of land and water. The fashion industry is known to produce 20% of the wastage of water globally.
Fossil fuels get used for making synthetic materials such as polyester and nylon. These materials are known to keep the fabrics stretchable. Production of the textile is known to generate 1.5 trillion pounds of carbon emission each year.
Stores take the help of a plastic hanger to hang the garment. There packaging is done in the plastic bags. As per data, more than half of the packaging materials didn’t get recycled in 2017.
Once the clothing gets to the end-user, it is worse to wear. There are about 41 gallons of water required per load on average to wash clothes. Microfibers get stripped off the synthetic fabrics while washing. These fabrics leech into the drinking water as well as oceans. When the garment is no more of use, its dumped and ends up in a landfill.
It’s time to cut up the clothes and don’t stock clothes in that wardrobe. Many high-end fashion designers have decided on how to reduce the cloth wastage. And, it is time; you become a part of the list soon!
