EP 14: Let‘s talk Textiles and Environment (Pt 2)

June 21st, 2021

Last episode, we talked about the problem that the textile industry poses towards the environment and what some companies are doing to change that. The European Union is enacting regulation that will change how manufacturers market clothing and in places like the UK, waste programs are undergoing to meet the fashion waste problem. In this episode, we discuss a UN effort to tackle the textile industry's environmental impact, some of the biggest offender countries and the policies that some countries are using to address the problem of pollution in fashion.
