We Need to Think About Clothing Differently- Friday, August 28th
12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Joe Whitten, Apparel Impact
Our clothing, shoe and other textile waste that ends up in landfills has increased 300% since 1990- and it's not getting any better. In fact, it's getting worse. With "fast fashion" becoming the new way for retail giants to increase profits and manufacturing of our clothing being sent to developing countries, we need to change the way we think about our clothing. It's no longer whether we should donate or recycle our clothing, it's how.
