It's pretty crazy when you think about it. Fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world after fossil fuels. More than flying, mining, construction, shipping and manufacturing. In fact it makes up 10% of all the carbon emissions in the world. To put that in perspective, that is more pollution PER MINUTE than driving a car around the world six times.

It also uses the second most water of any industry, is responsible for microplastic pollution and masses of human rights violations as corners are cut so the likes of Primark can make cheap clothes. Inevitably these clothes don't last long and so you need to buy more which creates a cycle of waste and pollution in the name of profit. 
It's a horrible industry and one we need to stop being so involved with. Wearing clothes for just 9 months longer will reduce your carbon footprint by almost one third. You will also save, on average, £27 a month.  It's not a difficult fix really is it?

The materials we wear on our bodies have a profound social impact on the people in the fashion supply chain. In Tamil Nadu, the Indian capital of cotton production, demand for cheap cotton from big brands has vast consequences for the hundreds of thousands of workers turning the raw cotton fibre into finished textile. The area has become a hub of child labour and poor working conditions, where workers are recruited from rural areas with promises of decent work. 
A SOMO report writes, “Recruiters convince parents in impoverished rural areas to send their daughters to the spinning mills with promises of a well-paid job, comfortable accommodation, three nutritious meals a day and opportunities for training and schooling, as well as a lump sum payment at the end of three years. However, when the girls arrive at the mills, it turns out that the reality of their new working life is not so attractive.” The prevalence of this reality in South Indian spinning mills relies on brands’ lack of transparency beyond the first tier of the supply chain. In our 2019 Fashion Transparency Index, we found just 27.5% of brands investigated published their processing facilities (tier 2). Without the knowledge of where brands obtain their fabrics, little can be done to protect the vulnerable workers in these facilities. 
We must demand a fashion industry with as much visibility of the supply chain, as of the clothes on the runways. Let’s ask #WhoMadeMyClothes and demand that brands publish not only their factory lists, but every tier of their supply chains.

  • Sometimes, going slow is needed not just in personal life but with work, especially in production.

Making things faster, cheaper, and more has been the solution in this rapidly changing world. But consequences are seen in the #fastfashion industry as its brought issues like low quality, wasted materials and resources, human rights and health problems, a warmer earth (#climatechange), threats to the ecosystem and endangering species and more.

With all these detrimental impacts, it made us think sustainably and led us to make a change, specifically in the jewelry industry. Our choice became #upcycling #trash

However, upcycling is not an easy path and requires dedicated time and work. All our pieces are made to order in our LA studio. That means it can take up to two weeks to receive your order. Many people are used to receiving items they purchase instantly as that's how large companies market. But we don't mass manufacture our products or ship a product the same or next day.

There are several reasons why we think slow is good in our production and why we don't keep any stock. Every step is a meticulous one. Each piece is handmade for you and we do everything in-house from start to finish. From picking up glass bottles🍾 from local restaurants, cleaning and removing labels, cutting and measuring bottles, melting and annealing glass, sanding and polishing, metalsmithing work (cutting, soldering, sanding, polishing, setting), and finally, packing!

Packing jewelry is the last step that we really care about. Packing delicate jewelry with a plastic ziplock, foam, tape or velvet pouch might be an easy solution. Most jewelry is stored in plastic bags and you can see how it's easy to pack. Our packaging is #plasticfree, wrapped with anti-tarnish tissue paper and comes with our tarnish resistant cotton pouch.✨ We believe slow production #slowfashion is the right way and your jewelry is never from the stock in the back, which looks exactly alike. We love all our customers and thank you for supporting CLED. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1️⃣ EXPLOIT WORKERS (Overseas/US)⠀⁣⁣
⁣Remember when Nike and Gap got caught in the 90’s for using sweatshop labor? That's a thing of the past, right?! Wrong. Things are even shadier now with garment prices lower than ever!⁣⁣

2️⃣ IS ENVIRONMENTALLY THE WORST 🤬
We can not begin to grasp the toll textile manufacturing takes on the earth. ⠀⁣⁣

Low quality changes how you think about clothes. If clothing feels cheap, fast, and disposable, that’s how we treat it.⠀⁣⁣

7️⃣ IS SHORT-TERM THINKING⠀⁣⁣
Rationalize items you wouldn't normally want. Why this is bad? You have no intent to keep long term.⠀⁣⁣
⠀⁣⁣
8️⃣ COSTS A LOT⠀⁣⁣
⁣⁣Fast fashion is designed to be replaced quickly, not so much by desire but by need. Clothing falls apart, making it impossible to donate. ⠀⁣⁣

  • Ok, what’s Clean Beauty? The basic concept is much like the concept of Ethical Fashion or anything organic, sustainable, fair trade, ethical, pasture-raised, grass-fed, etc.  All of these terms have to do with questioning the ingredients and production practices of the companies we buy from, and holding them accountable.  We question them and demand accountability because we care about the effects they have on ourselves, our children, and our planet.

Toxic run off from textile dyeing being dumped into freshwater in Lahore entering the Ravi river. Developing countries such as Pakistan are impacted most by the waste from these industries with little to no regulations. I witness this first hand on my trips. Just something to think about as enter 2020. As consumers we have the power to vote with our $ and change things. is this something we want support?

  • We now buy 60% more clothing than the year 2000 and only keep it for half as long. This is a whole lot of waste and we're doing it no matter our age. Fast fashion is causing more clothing waste than ever and comes at a HUGE cost to the environment and human rights. It's made up largely of synthetics which are derived from fossil fuels, it has an extremely high water footprint, it's mass-manufactured in a chemical laden industry, and the business model is largely constant new styles and turn over, relying on exploited labor to produce. ⁠
⁠
An average American throws away ~80 pounds of clothing per year. Australians dispose of about 6,000 kilograms of fashion and textile waste every 10 minutes. It is estimated that 350,000 tonnes of textiles goes to landfill in the UK every year.⁠
⁠
Our recommendation, and something we try and follow constantly, is to buy way less but when you buy, make it ethical and sustainable, and ideally from a small & transparent business. And then cherish it as long as humanly possible. Love it. Nurture it. Be able to compost it at end of life.⁠
⁠
Repairing clothes, buying secondhand (you can find some real gems at thrift shops), doing clothes swaps with friends or at work or school, washing less, wearing an item at least 100 times, and investing in ethical clothing, products made to last and natural fibres when buying new are some ways to reduce the impact. Buy items that mix and match well together and that you'll use over and over again. If you have items you haven't worn in 6 months and they're in good condition, sell them, donate them or swap them to give them life!⁠
⁠
Extra tip: don't own more clothing than you can fit in a standard suitcase (winter coats and shoes aside). ⁠

How are you doing on the fashion front?

The air we breathe, the water we drink, the foods we eat, the cleaning products we use in our homes, and the cosmetics we apply onto our skin are often loaded with artificial chemicals that can negatively affect our health. 🤕 Luckily, there are many ways we can reduce our toxic burden & help optimize our body’s system for cleaning and eliminating inner waste + outer contaminants. These small, everyday acts can make a big difference towards living a cleaner, healthier life. ✨ Do you have any favorite #cleanbeauty or non-toxic cleaning products?

  • Last year I successfully managed to control my shopping habits and I predominantly bought vintage, second hand, or from female-founded businesses. I'm not going to lie, I did have the occasional purchase from the high street, usually in the form of shoes or bags, but the whole process really made me think about my relationship with what I am buying.
Already this year I have been looking through the sales, and I have made a few purchases, but my mindset has completely changed as to how I shop. I think about how many times I will wear it and what it will go with that I already own instead of just buying it because I like it.
I spotted this on @heartzeena’s stories yesterday and bought it immediately. I still have work to do and no one is perfect but I’m hoping this might help me kick my long term relationship with fast fashion into the gutter.

  • Nagymamám kalapja:
Karácsonykor csak megjegyeztem “Tudod mami, hogy az a kalap ami most rajtad van “milyen drága” (kinek mi a drága🤷🏼‍♀️) a #fastfashion boltokban?”
Következő képsor:
“Tessék neked adom úgyis vettem nemrég pár újat.”
Hát igazából normál esetben ellenkeztem volna 🤷🏼‍♀️ de tudtam, hogy ez mostantól már mindig több lesz, mint “csak egy kalap”, amit egy üzletbe vásároltam.♥️
Éljenek a #szupernagyik és a retro cuccaik, ez a kalap is már jó pár dolgot megért, nem egy mai darab.

  • 60 neue Kleidungsstücke kauft durchschnittlich jeder Deutsche im Jahr. Am besten so günstig wie möglich. Dabei ist die Modeindustrie mit die dreckigste Industrie auf unserer Erde. 
Die Fabriken verbrauchen für die Kleidungsherstellung nicht nur Unmengen an Energie und erzeugen viel CO2, sie leiten auch ihr Abwasser in die umliegenden Flüsse. Denn in Ländern wie Indien, Bangladesh oder auch China gibt es meistens kein richtiges Abwassersystem. So landen die giftige Chemikalien einfach in den Flüssen und sind für die stärkste Verschmutzung in den Flüssen verantwortlich. Die Chemikalien machen die Flüsse für Tiere und Pflanzen unbewohnbar. Allerdings sind die Menschen dort auf die Flüsse angewiesen. Sie brauchen diese als Trinkwasserquelle, zur Bewässerung, zum Wäsche waschen oder auch zum Baden. In Gemeinden bei den verschmutzen Flüssen erkranken die Menschen oft an Krebs oder anderen gravierten Krankheiten. An der Färbung der Flüsse erkennt man, welche Farbe bald im Trend ist. 
Um gegen diese Umweltverschmutzung vor zu gehen, gibt es immer mehr Slow Fashion Labels, die sich für eine umweltfreundliche, faire und nachhaltige Produktion einsetze. Aber eigentlich ist es so, dass wir schon genug Kleidung auf der Welt haben. Es müsse eigentlich gar nichts Neues mehr produziert werden. Deshalb kann man auch super auf secondhand Kleidung zurück greifen. .
Kauft ihr euch viele Kleidungsstücke im Jahr? Achtet ihr darauf, wo eure Kleidung herkommt? .
