Today's society encourages us to consume more quickly than ever before. We can afford to discard items we no longer want and replace them promptly, thanks to mass production. As a result, things are engineered to last less time and to be of worse quality. To grow the necessary raw materials, large amounts of water, pesticides and other hazardous chemicals, like fabric dyes, are required. These are harming the Earth's soil, biodiversity, and local water sources. which is why I'm here to tell you about switching to Sustainable, Slow fashion
The clothing and textile sector is predicted to emit roughly 1.7 billion tonnes of CO2 each year, making it a major contributor to global warming.

Plastic is a by product as we know and I think it has a design failure. When the manufacturers made plastic they forgot to mention that it is not designed to be disposed off.
We must have been taught the concept of recycling and saying "no"to single use plastic right from the time we got introduced to it. Why do we not think that any plastic produced till date, still exists somewhere and in some form. Today plastic is everywhere, your food, your water, your coffee cup , your carry bags , the list is endless.

How safely and responsibly do you dispose of the water used to clean your house? We know that our laundry, bath and kitchen waste water have nowhere else to go other than down the drain, but do we take the effort to find out where it will end up eventually? While most wastewater is treated and cleaned to be sent back into circulation for use, some of it ends up reaching natural water bodies, causing pollution and damage to the life there. More than waste from homes posing a risk, industrial waste most often goes into these rivers, lakes, and sometimes directly into the ocean. The least we can do is check the harmful effects caused by chemicals in our cleaning products, and make changes accordingly.
While most of our floor, glass, toilet cleaning and detergent fluids contain highly toxic chemicals, we haven’t looked around much to see if there are sustainable solutions which can replace these in a daily use situation. I hadn’t,
With repeated use and abuse of resources available to us, we have fallen into a trap of unsustainable living, where many struggle to make a conscious and eco-friendly choice. Often, it turns out that we are unaware of the sources and processes that a product has been through before it reaches us, whether it could be responsible for global warming, causing pollution, unnecessary deforestation, unsustainable labour, or heavy wastage of unusable materials.
We regularly change toothbrushes without realizing just how many are thrown out in landfills, we indulge in frequent style changes, otherwise known as “fast fashion.” Women have excessive sanitary waste disposed of on a regular basis — the list goes on, with bottled water, single ketchup sachets, and whatnot. Our clothing choices matter heavily for the overall well-being of planet earth. Synthetic fabrics often end up with fine threads reaching the ocean, so microscopic
Are you one of those people always planning a holiday in their heads for the future? What place are you going to visit, all the stuff you're going to do, and what clothes are you going to wear? Let me give you a fair warning now and I'm sorry to disappoint you in advance.
The pace we humans are going with and how injudiciously we are using our mother earth’s resources is at a leisurely pace destroying the only planet that supports life (until proven otherwise).
Let me explain it to you by giving an example -
I am sure this happens to you all the time. You went out only to look around in the mall and not with the intention of shopping and then
Who knew there would be a day when we would all be forced to stay home, unable to see anyone, and the world would eventually take a break?
The Covid-19 lock-down enforced 8 months ago confined humans to where they were and eventually took a deep breath from our mother Earth and regained some of its magic. Rivers were washed a bit, animals and birds were seen, air cleaned up and noise decreased.
The most significant thing was how much we influenced our world and how it would look if we only avoided fouling it, of all the things we learned in this pandemic.
