What some people do not understand is climate change, deforestation, and pollution is not just caused at a macro level by big oil companies, and the government, but damages to the environment are also caused from other macro-industries as well. One of these industries is fashion. This industry makes billions of dollars selling clothes to women, men, and children, but they also destroy millions of trees and damage the environment in several different ways. However, there is always a solution to the problem, and green entrepreneurs are the catalyst to show people, fashion designers, and the fashion industry that this can still be a billion dollar industry, while remaining socially and environmentally conscious. This new wave in the fashion industry is called eco-fashion. This month we will talk about a variety of topics that will relate to the eco-fashion industry. We will also promote and interview local eco-fashion companies and entrepreneurs to hear their take on this industry. Finally, we will tell you some untold stories of the fashion industry that may surprise you. Stay tuned!
