Eco Fashion *NEW*
Eco fashion is about choosing clothes that take into account the environment. A huge amount of resources including water, energy and fuel go into producing the clothes we wear, as well as large amounts of chemical fertilisers that are used on fabric crops. Eco-fashion aims to reduce the resources we use and buy, and reduce the impact of fashion on the natural environment. Eco-fashion can include second hand clothes, utilising scrap materials, reusing fabric to make new garments or choosing clothes that are made from environmentally sustainable fabrics (like bamboo, organic cotton, hemp).
