The fashion industry is the second-largest consumer of the world’s water supply and produces more carbon emissions than international flights and maritime shipping combined. Washing synthetic clothes releases 500,000 tons of microplastics into the ocean each year—the equivalent to 50 billion plastic bottles.

Plastic pollution threatens marine life. Oceans are an important source of food and host 80% of the planet’s biodiversity. Healthy oceans reduce climate change impact by absorbing 90% of excess heat and 30% of greenhouse gas emissions.

The fast-fashion trend compounds these problems, and 85% of all textiles end up in landfills each year. There is growing consumer awareness for ethical fashion, but the best way to be truly sustainable is to buy secondhand and make do with less. This project was created with found fabrics and beads.
