August 7, 2019 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm
Can the fashion industry become sustainable? What are the harmful effects that the traditional fashion industry contributes? Join the conversation on sustainable fashion at our August IDEAS Hive event.
Second to oil, the clothing and textile industry is the largest polluter in the world. 3 United Nations Climate Change News states, The fashion industry contributes 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions due to its long supply chains and energy intensive production. What can everyday consumers do to improve this reality?
We will be diving into the world of fashion and the future of sustainable fashion with Melissa Feezor from Raw materials by Melissa to talk about the environment, options consumers have to divert waste, and how the industry is shifting.
