do you know? Air pollution is the biggest environment in our time, which is caused by this every year.
In all parts of the world, there are schedules every day
2 billion tons
It is discharged into the water pipe, and about 4,000 children die from the disease caused by polluting water.
) Just die because of diarrhea.
Human activities on land are the biggest source of marine pollution. It is estimated that there are about about
8 million tons
Enter the ocean.
But do you know? Compared with the harm caused by any of the above pollution, the hazard of the fashion clothing industry is comparable.
The fashion industry, especially the “Fast Fashion” industry, has produced garbage to occupy carbon emissions all human beings
It exceeds the sum of all international flights and shipping emissions, and has caused problems such as water sources and river pollution.
There is an average annual in the clothing industry
Throwing into the garbage treatment plant, it is equivalent to filter a pickup truck every second.
And it will release about the ocean every year
Micro fiber pollution
It is equivalent to
Throw it into the ocean, and plastic pollution accounts for 31%of marine plastic pollution.
According to a survey, the existence of micro -plastic (very small plastic sheets that never biodegradation) in 16 countries such as commercial salt, beer, and honey in 16 countries around the world.
Most clothes contain synthetic fibers, such as polyester fiber, nylon, acrylic, etc. These ingredients need to consume hundreds of years to biodegradation.
The emissions of the production of polyester fibers are twice to three times that of cotton, and these ingredients will not be decomposed in the ocean, and they will also cause serious pollution to the ocean.
Who can think of fashion is the second largest industry in water consumption? There are more than approximately producing each year
92 million tons
15,000 tons of water resources
For example, the water that produces a cotton shirt is equivalent to drinking eight glasses of water a day, which lasts about 3 and a half years. The water that produces a pair of jeans can allow a person to drink eight glasses of water a day for about 10 years.
Textile dyeing in the clothing industry has also ranked second in the world’s water pollution sources, which caused
The left and right industrial water pollution.

NO.3 —- The re-creation of clothing
For clothes that lose interest, you can make a brain hole and re -creation, giving old clothes new life instead of choosing to discard! Alas, a new dress appears (and a hand -disabled party like an editor, please move the next method)!
