Each year, 100 billion pieces of clothing are produced, and about 85% of these freshly-made clothes go to landfill in the same year. Suppose the textile industry continues to function at its current rate, it is projected for textile waste to reach 134 million tons in less than ten years, and that carbon emissions caused by fashion industry to double. One of the most striking facts about textile production that is overlooked is that the sector requires large amounts of chemicals, water, energy, and many other natural resources. In addition to the large volumes of natural resources utilized in production, each piece of clothing disposed of by landfilling takes, on average, more than 200 years to decompose in nature and causes the release of large amounts of methane gas and leakage of toxic chemicals and dyes.
