I will be talking about fast fashion. I choose fast fastion because I'm intrested in what it does to the envionment and why it happens. It's important because what affects the envionment also affects us.

fashion production comprises 10% of total global carbon emissions, as much as the European Union. It dries up water sources and pollutes rivers and streams, while 85% of all textiles go to dumps each year. The fast fashion industry pollutes waterways with toxic dyes, and increases the number of microfibres in the ocean through the use of fossil fuel-based fabrics.Fast fashion's negative impact includes its use of cheap, toxic textile dyes—making the fashion industry the one of the largest polluters of clean water globally, right up there with agricultureFast fashion has an enormous environmental footprint for both its production and disposal. Clothing production requires a considerable amount of energy and resources, while it depends on toxic fabric dyes and other chemicals that contaminate fresh water. Fashion produces a tenth of the world's carbon emissions. It doesn't promote decent work conditions, gender equality, diversity, or inclusivity.

I think that we should help prevent so much disaster. We should just buy what you need. Also instead of throwing away clothes we should donate it to homeless people. I think this because 85% of the landfills are clothes that's a lot of clothes that's being thrown away. Some of it has not been warned at all
