Be Green in Black and Pink by lakeluv
It's good to know that you no longer have to look like a 1960's hippie to be environmentally conscious. Companies like H&M are starting to offer more Eco-conscious collections to the masses and other famous brands are starting to follow suit.
This was mostly becuase in November of 2012, Greenpeace releaseed its report, “Toxic Threads: The Big Fashion Stitch-Up,” which revealed the links between textile manufacturing facilities using toxic chemicals and water pollution. It covered 20 of the world’s global fashion brands and now some of those companies have pledged to work towards detoxing and offering more environmentally friendly options.
Fifteen global fashion leaders have committed to Detox in response to the growing international campaign (Nike, Adidas, Puma, H&M, M&S, C&A, Li-Ning, Zara, Mango, Esprit, Levi's, Uniqlo, Benetton, Victoria's Secret, G-Star Raw and Valentino). But other clothing companies, like Calvin Klein, GAP and Abercrombie&Fitch still need to respond to the urgency of the situation.
I know a lot of people who don't wear leather goods because they do not want to hurt animals, which is great, but at what point are people going to boycott toxic clothing because it's slowly killing earth and eventually humans?
