Inspiration 🌳

Effect of fast fashion Clothing and textiles production releases 1.2 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases every year – that’s more than the combined emissions for all international flights AND shipping.
One garbage truck of clothing and textiles is sent to landfills or burned every second, while just 1% of clothing is recycled into new clothing.
“Fast fashion” focuses on quick production speeds and lower costs to deliver frequent new collections inspired by celebrity or catwalk styles. Retailers are able to tempt shoppers with constant newness and try to convince them that the items they already have are no longer fashionable.
We got inspired by the numerous researches on the detrimental effect fast fashion has on the environment.
Our project aims to reduce the need for fast fashion by providing FAST, EASY and FUN opportunity to obtain clothes - via Fast Fashion.

What we learned📚

The most important thing we learned while working on the project is that every individual has a giant effect on our environment with every little choice we make.
