How Realistic is the Fashion Industry’s Move to Recyclable Clothing
The fashion industry continues to waste the most materials in making their products. Is there any way to make their production process less harmful for the environment?
The answer is ‘the more sustainable the better.’ Instead of looking at more new types of materials that can be recycled, the fashion industry currently relies on making up recycled materials by way of various hazardous chemicals. This leads to a huge waste of resources, and leads to environmental destruction.
In the past few years, many companies have started incorporating recycled materials into their fashion process. A lot of people have been making their own products out of discarded products and recycling. In fact, some companies like H&M are taking part of the trend by recycling their entire clothing lines.
The fashion industry is a very profitable industry, and it’s likely that the companies will keep making money off the whole recycled idea. Of course, it’s not all that simple, as it requires a lot of work to put a value on an idea like recycling. For example, the textile industry has been making recycling products out of discarded materials into a fashion trend for years. Why is this no longer an option for fashion companies?
The answer, of course, is to put some regulations into place by the government. According to a recent report by the World Economic Forum, it would take only two years for the fashion industry to return to their original use.
According to the report, all clothes that are made will have to be made from recycled materials.
Of course, it’s not all that simple, and the fashion industry has its own policies and guidelines. But it is a start and it’s something that’s needed in the world.
