Fast Company has an interesting article about green fashion, raising concerns about green clothing being more about pushing product than saving the environment.
I think that the most important take-aways from the articles are:
1. As consumers, we should consider and, if possible, inquire about where the products originated and how they were produced.
2. We should consider the life cycle of the clothing we purchase and what will happen after we discard the clothes. Since cheap clothing might have to be replaced more often than more expensive, high-quality clothing, it might be more environmentally-friendly to purchase high-quality, classic pieces whose lifetime may be equal to yours – or that of your children.
