Thursday Lesson – Fast Fashion

Age Group: Senior Primary and Secondary 

The clothing & textile industry is the second largest contributor to global pollution. We use a wide range of resources to make our clothing and textiles. However weather we get those raw material is from a plant, an animal or crude oil, the process of making textiles is both energy-demanding and pollutant-intensive, involving huge amounts of water, energy, chemicals, pesticides and herbicides. Learn more about this in the fact sheet below. Want to help divert textile waste to landfill? Try up-cycling an old tee-shirt into a new tote bag!
