Did you Know? Over HALF the clothing and textiles made in the world is cotton-based. And the fashion industry is the largest consumer of the 40 billion pounds produced each year! So think about THIS! To grow one kilogram of cotton, the crop demands 20,000 liters of water and a staggering amount of pesticides and insecticides. To put this figure into perspective, that same kilo of cotton produces enough actual fabric to produce ONE T-shirt and ONE pair of jeans. That’s it – enough clothing to cover the body of one person! And there are 7.7 billion people in the world! There aren’t enough farmers, tractors or dirt for that matter folks! The fashion industry’s demand on our ecosystems is mind-boggling!
