What does pollution mean to you? To date, I only thought pollution was done by big companies, coal mines, chemical factories, and so on. But the fact says the fashion industry is among the most polluting industries. Clothing is produced in a manner that harms our planet, and the making process kills many farmers with its waste and chemical. The need of an hour is to become mindful about fashion and start utilizing eco-friendly clothing.

Start with a small shift to the ethical wardrobe. Utilize things that are more eco-friendly, have low-impact dying, made from natural materials or upcycled clothes, grown from organically pesticide-free cotton. This conscious decision will definitely make a difference to our planet.
