Wear What You Love Every Day


We can and We must Slow Fast Fashion

by Priscila Teixeira 21 Mar 2023 0 Comments

Forests are an essential part of our planet, providing vital ecosystem services, including oxygen production, carbon sequestration, and water regulation. Yet, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), 17% of the Amazon rainforest has been lost in the last 50 years, largely due to human activities such as cattle ranching, soy production, and logging.


One often-overlooked connection between fashion and deforestation is the production of viscose, a popular fabric made from wood pulp. According to a report by Canopy, an environmental nonprofit organization, more than 150 million trees are logged each year to produce viscose and other cellulosic fabrics. This deforestation not only threatens the health of our planet but also the communities and wildlife that rely on forests for their livelihoods.


Fortunately, there are steps we can take to slow deforestation and promote sustainability in fashion. One important step is to support sustainable fashion brands that prioritize eco-friendly materials and production methods. By choosing clothing made from organic cotton, recycled materials, or innovative materials like Tencel or Econyl, we can help reduce the demand for wood pulp-based fabrics like viscose.


Another step is to reduce our overall consumption of fast fashion. According to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the fashion industry produces more greenhouse gas emissions than the shipping and aviation industries combined, largely due to the high volume of clothing that is produced and disposed of each year. By choosing to buy fewer, high-quality pieces and caring for them properly, we can help reduce the environmental impact of our clothing choices.

In conclusion, sustainability in fashion has a vital role to play in the preservation of forests and the health of our planet. By choosing sustainable fashion options and reducing our overall consumption of fast fashion, we can help protect the forests and wildlife that are essential to our planet's health and wellbeing. So next time you're considering a new clothing purchase, think about the impact it may have on our forests and consider making a more sustainable choice.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
