Despite being in the age where we are all connected through social media and information is available at the touch of our fingertips, we are more disconnected than ever before. As a nation we are spending increasingly more time in front of screens watching television marathons, looking through endless pages of photos of ourselves, and videos of our newest clothing haul. With ads constantly being fed to us, as a society, we have moved to a life of single use purchases and constant consumption. One of the biggest growing industries and the one that creates incomparable waste is the clothing industry. Quickly, the clothing industry has turned into a hidden environmental crisis and even a human rights concern. Little has been done to control the waste in this sector, and the few attempts at solutions have turned into problems themselves. Breaking down the crisis to its’ causes and resulting complications will allow for new recommendations and actions to be taken by individuals, and companies.
