Transcript of Eco Fashion
Definition: Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability, the goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of environmentalism and social responsibility. Sustainable fashion is part of the larger trend of sustainable design where a product is created and produced with consideration to the environmental and social impact it may have throughout its total life span, including its "carbon footprint".
The average amount of times a piece of clothing is washed is 30 times before losing it's shape and being disposed of.
New styles every season!

Fair Trade- fair trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency, and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers
Thousands of tons of chemical waste from the manufacturing of clothing are dumped into water sources in 3rd world countries annually.
Most clothing that we wash is not actually dirty
We just like to refresh our clothing, which wastes energy and shortens the life of our clothing.
"...perhaps in time new generations of consumers will not only think more ethically, but also act more ethically, and while product value, price and quality will always be key consumer issues, future consumers may also consider good ethics to be equally crucial."- Kirsi Niniimaki
"consumers are interested in eco-fashion but they do not want ethical purchasing to cause inconvenience, such as through higher prices or uncomfortable materials."
"We should return in our consuming behaviour back to the time, to the stage where we bought a little, but
expensive and good. Now cheap products hinder us from realizing this ideal." -Kirsi Niinimaki
Eco-fashion can be defined as clothing that is designed for long lifetime use; it is produced in an ethical production system, perhaps even locally; it causes little or no environmental impact and it makes use of eco-labeled or recycled materials
Nanobots, for real?
Chemicals that "breathe"?
Fresh scents added?
clothing that transforms?
Although ethically made clothing may cost more, clothing manufacturing will face a better future and reduce waste if consumers make an effort to buy only ethical clothing; if people demand ethical clothing practices, and if consumers retract support for companies who abuse people and the environment, more innovations will be made to increase ethical clothing production.
