Sustainable Fashion is also known as ReFashion is a process that changes fashion products and systems towards better ecology. Sustainable fashion focuses on the whole system of how manufacturing and fabric sourcing works. It focuses on the life span of the end products before it reaches the landfill. Interdependent social, cultural, ecological, and financial systems are concerned with Sustainable Fashion.
This fashion trend also deals with considering fashion from the perspective of many. Living species to nature, every aspect is concerned in Sustainable Fashion. This trend is also a responsibility of citizens, the public sector, and the private sector. A key example of this system is to change the fabric type of a product for a better fabric that is less harmful to the environment.
Brief History of Sustainability in Fashion
The origins of the sustainable fashion movement come from a book that was published in 1962. This book is called Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. Rachel Carson is an American biologist that exposes serious and widespread pollution by the process that fashion moves on. After the concept, the process was systematically investigated and new concepts emerged. At the Rio Summit, these ‘Green Issues’ were investigated. After years of work from the ecologists, fashion production and sourcing started to shift through a process that is more environmentally friendly and currently lots of governments start to investigate this fashion process to reduce Carbon Emissions.
