Textile is the second most polluting sector after oil. Each of its raw materials, production, delivery to the consumer, use and subsequent processes cause great damage to the environment. Many of the elements such as vibrant colors, prints, and fabric coverings contain toxic chemicals. Polyester-containing clothes leave microfibers when washed in household washing machines.
Laundry containing polyester leaves microfibers when washed in household washing machines. They easily pass into waterways in sewers and pose a serious threat to aquatic life as they are not biodegradable. Small creatures in the seas and oceans eat microfibers, and these chemicals, which pass to fish in this way, come to people's tables. While the rapid production and consumption in the #fashion industry adversely affects human health, it also causes animal slaughter and high carbon emissions. The concept of fast fashion was born after methods of mass production of thousands of clothes with cheap labor were found. After this discovery, since the clothes are sold at very affordable prices, consumers prefer to buy new ones instead of repairing old and damaged clothes. About 100 billion clothes are sold annually around the world, and one out of every six people works in the global fashion industry in harsh conditions. With the importance of sustainability, which is the only way to break this chain of disasters, brands that adopt the principle of #sustainability in textile and fashion started to come to the fore. As Ecotone, we are proud to be the leading brand of "sustainable fashion" in our country. Support sustainable fashion!
