The fashion industry has a significant negative impact on the environment. In fact, it is the second largest polluter in the world, just behind the oil industry. And the environmental damage only increases as the industry grows.
Consumers buy 60% more than they did just 15 years ago, and keep those items only half as long. That means that more than half of the 100 billion garments produced each year end up in incinerators and landfills. (Synthetic fibers, such as polyester, are plastic fibers, therefore non-biodegradable and can take up to 200 years to decompose. Synthetic fibers are used in 72% of our clothing.)
Clothing has clearly become disposable. Just Around the Corner, LLC is dedicated to fostering a sustainable future by providing an alternative to our fast fashion, disposable society.
