Future Fashion

From Rations and Proportions on tumblr:

"What spurred me to promote ethical fashion? This little book. It’s called, quite succinctly, Future Fashion and it contains a series of short essays from a host of different designers and business owners involved in green fashion. Everyone from Diane von Furstenberg (writing as the head of the CFDA) to an organic wool farmer to a natural textile dyer contributes to this book, and each small essay adds up to an enormous picture of the huge obstacles the industry faces before we become sustainable and ethical. The book focuses on green movements, but some of the facts I read - such as the huge cancer rates among textile workers - spurred me to endorse fair trade and fair labor issues in the production of fashion as well. It’s a quick and easy read, but it’s well worth the effort if you’re curious as to how the fashion industry has become the 2nd most pollutive industry on earth, behind only oil & energy. "
