Laundering synthetic clothes accounts for 35% of primary microplastics released into the environment. A single laundry load of polyester clothes can discharge 700,000 microplastic fibres that can end up in the food chain, states the EU report.
With a new fashion trend emerging every second, our constant need to upgrade our wardrobes is taking a toll on the planet. Fashion production alone is responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions and leads to water pollution and textile waste.
Our show, The Wardrobe Switch, is back with its second season, taking us back to a simpler time when clothing was environmentally-friendly, sustainable, and affordable. In this episode, we follow the journey of two entrepreneurs, Tina Gunani and Srishti Kucheria, who are leading the way in ‘slow fashion’ by upcycling old clothes and accessories into fun and fashionable pieces. Join us on this inspiring journey towards a more sustainable future for fashion.
