Trendy Fashion to Circular Fashion Choices

Worldwide, cloth manufacturing releases 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year, posing severe environmental challenges.

Textile industry currently produces 3 per cent of global CO2 emissions, it is predicted to increase to over 10 per cent by 2050.

The use of polyester and other synthetic materials to manage costs leads to non-biodegradable wastes pouring into oceans, impacting the marine ecosystem.

Circular economy-inspired ‘circular fashion’ initiatives that aim to create a more sustainable and regenerative way of production, consumption, and disposal are gradually gaining ground.

Circular fashion trend has also promoted innovations that reduce the chemical footprint of dyeing and printing clothes without compromising on quality.
