A New Textiles Economy: Redesigning Fashion’s Future

Fashion is a vibrant industry that employs hundreds of millions, generates significant revenues, and touches almost everyone, everywhere. Since the 20th century, clothing has increasingly been considered as disposable, and the industry has become highly globalised, with garments often designed in one country, manufactured in another and sold worldwide at an ever-increasing pace.

If the crops aren’t healthy, then the 70 percent of the world’s fresh water that’s used for agriculture will be wasted.
