Now with the use of Fast Fashion, many companies can put out top quality products and still grow. However, the thing that this book is trying to share is the problems that are being caused due the methods used to make these clothes. Many would think that most of the problems of pollution is coming form products like paper, plastic, food and petroleum. These we try to reuse, up-cycle and recycle. However, no one realizes that the clothing industries are causing much more pollution to our environment, than we could imagine. Honestly, I never even thought about clothing being a dangerous thing. It just never dawned on me that clothing being dyed and the products used to create these fabrics of clothing we wear, are adding more CO2 into the air and so many things that can cause our society to become worse, while we look our best.
