It is not a matter of if and can, fashion must be ethical and sustainable. While the process of switching to sustainability is not a walk in the park, it isn’t as difficult as people perceive it to be. The responsibility falls not only on the shoulders of conglomerates and industry leaders, but also on us. All it takes is a little effort on our part to save the planet.
Fashion can definitely be made sustainable and ethical, starting right from the production process, using recycled and biodegradable materials, followed by ensuring humane working conditions for the workforce, including fair wages and health care services.
The ball is then in the consumer’s court. The consumer must make a wise, conscious decision to purchase from labels that are committed to the slow fashion movement and are making changes to the industry that are of significant and productive value.
Not too long from today, we will see a completely revolutionized industry, marked by sustainability and imbued with a sense of responsibility.
