One of the most outwardly glamorous industries is quite different internally.

Though it’s ever-chic and dream-like in its fashion weeks and runway shows, the industry is one of the most powerful when it comes to effects on our climate. Right now, this power is being wielded for worse.

The $2.5 trillion fashion industry accounts for at least 10% of global carbon emissions annually. Beyond carbon emission is the issue of water usage: Annually, the fashion industry uses at least 93 billion cubic meters of water and produces at least 20% of global wastewater coming from garment dyes and treatments, according to the World Bank.
