Today’s fast fashion is nothing but a bucket of toxic chemicals mixed together to create fabric for cheap disposable clothes.
One garment can contain 8,000-12,000 toxic chemicals many of which the industry has no real idea of what their impact on our health may be. Over 1,900 of these chemicals cannot be washed out of clothes. The one’s that can be washed out go down the drain to contaminate our ecosystem, water and soil. Somehow when we’re told a chemical can be washed out of a garment in our minds it makes it okay for it to be there in the first place and washing something down the drain magically makes it go away. We must change this mindset-the chemicals are still hurting us as we depend on our ecosystem to sustain our lives.
