Know if your fashion habits are wasteful, harmful

Dubai: Are you the type to wear the same two or three outfits to different parties through the year?
Or are you the kind who ensures you have a new outfit for nearly every party you attend?

In all probability, a majority of people will fall into the latter category. After all, it is the fashion dictum of our age.
As consumerism in fashion expands its footprint, many voices are being raised about its impact — leading among them being UK designer Stella McCartney who joined a campaign by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
Wasteful, harmful

It highlights retail fashion industry’s alarming production and consumption rates, which she said have led it to be “incredibly wasteful and harmful to the environment.”
McCartney joined the move started by the environmental campaigner Dame Ellen MacArthur, whose foundation exposed the industry’s scale of waste.
Calling for a systemic change to the way clothing is produced and used, the report pointed out the “throwaway nature of fashion has created a business which creates greenhouse emissions of 1.2bn tons a year — larger than that of international flights and shipping combined.”
