Chapter 2: Fashion, Social Marketing, and the Eco-Savvy Shopper What Does Sustainable Mean? “To be sustainable means that you take out of a system the same amount of energy as you put in, with no pollution or waste.” Pre-Industrial Era Sustainability was a must because:
-Long time to produce fabrics: only elite could participate fully in fashion

-saved fabrics, remodeled clothes, sold to secondhand market

-Fibers came only from nature: Labor intensive

-Textile production wasn’t evenly distributed around world: very limited

-Owned just a few sets of clothes: women altered dresses with fashion Why Now? Overconsumption of clothing is based on an old model and is not fashionable

People have the power to support with their purchases the growth of sustainable practices of retailers and manufacturers

Sustainable fashion can enhance the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of people

People are the driving force behind sustainable choices Early Industrialization Devices were made to process fiber into fabrics Sustainable Process: one you can do forever without exhausting resources or fouling the environment Who has the power to create impact?
