A long time ago, clothes were made to last for years. Before fast fashion brands, people used to buy garments a few times a year to replace old clothes or wear something new on special occasions. Nowadays, clothes are cheaper and people can afford to buy trendy clothes at least once per month. And that's how we started to hear the term: Fast Fashion. With this new trend, people tend to buy clothes they wear a handful of times or, what's worse, they never use them! Do you think this is a sustainable practice? Let's find out. If you'd like to learn why is fast fashion a s problem & what can we all do, then keep reading to discover how it impacts people, the planet, and animals. But more importantly, you'll learn how to spot fast fashion brands! What Is Fast Fashion? Fast fashion is the term used to describe the mass production of cheap, trendy, and poor-quality clothes. This unsustainable business model focuses on reworking the latest styles from the catwalk and what some celebrities or social media influencers use. As a result, people can quickly wear the “newest trends”. Here's how the fast fashion cycle works: Fast Changes in Fashion Trends: Fashion brands are constantly producing new lines of clothes to offer the “latest trends”, which they often create to keep people endlessly buying their clothes. Fast Production: They produce these clothes as quickly as possible. Fast Sale: Since consumers can wear the latest looks without spending a fortune, they don't think twice before buying these clothes. Fast Use: These clothes wear out fast and go out of style in a few months. So, it should come as no surprise that people get rid of them as soon as they become “outdated looks”. What's the Environmental Impact of Fast Fashion? Fast fashion focuses on reducing production costs as much as possible. And destroying nature is more profitable than protecting it. That's why they've become one of the highest polluting industries in the world! And this practice is contributing to the climate change Let's explore why fast fashion is bad for the environment: Water Pollution and Consumption This industry alone uses 93 billion cubic metres of water every year! Besides using large quantities of water and pesticides, they also dump untreated toxic wastewater into rivers. Industrial water pollution can exterminate aquatic life and affect communities that rely on these water sources. Global Warming Fast fashion has a huge carbon footprint. First of all, most of their clothes are made of synthetic fabrics, which are derived from fossil fuels. Likewise, most of their factories rely on non-renewable energy sources. And let's not forget that these clothes are shipped around the world. Plastic Pollution As we mentioned before, fast fashion brands tend to use synthetic fibres, like nylon and polyester, to keep their prices low. When we wash these clothes, they release tiny plastic particles known as microfibres. To give you an idea, around 700,000 fibres can come off these clothes in a typical wash! But that's not all. Since these fibres are so small, they can pass through the wastewater treatment systems and end up polluting our oceans. Not only will they harm marine animals, but they will also become part of our diet! Waste Another problem with fast fashion is the inconceivable amount of waste it creates: around 92 million tonnes of textiles waste each year! As clothes became cheaper, consumers now see them as disposable. So, people don't keep them in their wardrobes for too long. And even if they wanted to, these poor-quality clothes are not made to last. For that reason, they're rarely suitable for resale and end up sitting in landfills. But consumers are not the only ones generating textile waste. Some brands also discard clothes that are no longer “modern” instead of selling them! Why Is Fast Fashion Bad for Workers? Fast fashion brands also reduce their production costs by exploiting garment workers and farmers. Their garment workers work in dan...

Gen Z is driving the fast fashion machine. Seventy-two percent of college students say they have shopped fast fashion in the past year, and 40% say they scroll fast fashion sites and apps at least once a day. For many, it's an addiction. But this generation of 20-somethings is also more concerned about sustainability, climate change, and workers' rights than any other. So how do they reconcile the two?  In this episode, Christina, Shilla and Rachel look at the problem of fast fashion addiction and how we got here. Plus, ThredUP has a new fast fashion confessional hotline. Is it just a marketing ploy? Or can it really help Gen Z kick the habit? Plus, we take a quick look at how the unprecedented heat wave in China is impacting the fashion industry, and call out celebrities in LA for being water hogs.  Resources:   ThredUP's Fast Fashion Hotline  Inside Climate News on fast fashion addiction The Guardian on Gen Z and its complicated relationship with fast fashion  Hot Buttons is a production of Post Script Media.
