The Making + Production of Clothing

The textile industry is actually the second most polluting industry in the world - after oil and before the livestock industry. It takes between 10,000-20,000 litres of water to produce just 2 pairs of jeans (1kg of cotton). This is the same amount 1 person drinks in 10 years...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Luckily, #onewearfreedom holds the solution. If everyone rented and reused just ONE garment, we could save over 2.5 billion kilos of carbon emissions according to #thredup. That’s the equivalent of taking half a million cars off the road for a year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now that’s powerful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀

Imagine what else you could do...⠀⠀
