The stats are starting to roll in about our planet and all the living things that inhabit it.
This is what I read today in the newspaper.
"60% of vertebrate population has fallen since 1970"
"80% freshwater populations have vanished"
"The collapse of global wildlife populations is a warning sign that nature is dying"
Did you read my last post: 'Can we start thinking outside of the box and deliver a better, healthier future for our planet?' I covered the issues of fast fashion, tips on how to make ethical choices when buying clothes or designing them and I discussed the hot topic of plastic and how it is destroying our eco-system.
It is scary what is happening to our world, and I know that many of us feel a little helpless. I wasn't going to be an ethical bridal designer, however since being educated on fast fashion, and the textile industry I believe it is important for everyone to start making changes.
This is what I am proposing:
- All of my dresses are being lined with organic bamboo with GOTS certified.
