Understanding Sustainable and Ethical Fashion

"Fashion can be a universal player in protecting the planet," by Pharrel Williams.

The statement can derive the meaning of sustainable and ethical fashion. Though sustainable fashion conveys a similar idea, many individuals have a different concept about it.

What is ethical fashion?

Ethical and sustainable fashion has been one of the most important steps taken towards saving the environment amidst the chaos of fast fashion and glamour, style, and latest trends. Unlike the fast-changing fashion, ethical fashion is morally acceptable. Unlike the industrial methods of manufacturing fast fashion trends, sustainable fashion begins from the cultivable land and ends in consumer satisfaction.

Why does sustainable fashion matter?

Bringing a change in the fashion industry by incorporating sustainable and ethical items can prove to be highly beneficial for the environment. But, there are other ecological benefits too, which must be known and promoted.

  • Promoting social good

Manufacturing ethical and sustainable products incorporate more workers, creating a scope of employment in the industrial sectors.

  • Tackling pollution

Sustainable products aim to prevent pollution and counteract the effect, using eco-friendly goods. Thus, the raw materials used in these products are naturally derived without harming the animals.

  • Encouraging no animal harm

The products of fast fashion are usually not cruelty-free and include animal harm. In contrast to that, sustainable and ethical products aim at producing cruelty-free products, without affecting the animals.

What can we control by choosing ethical fashion?

There are certain things that we can bring in control if we choose ethical and sustainable products over fast fashion.

  • Reduces the scale of the fast-fashion industry

The rapid growth of such fast-fashion industries is creating a shortage in space to accommodate the similarly growing population. Thus, shifting to sustainable and ethical clothing can help to reshape the direction of rapid industrial growth.

  • Restrict the use of chemicals in production

As fast-fashion industries do not focus on Sustainable fashion, the usage of chemicals is also rising at a rapid rate. Most of the clothing is derived from the cotton crop, and thus, harmful chemicals are incorporated to promote its harvest.

  • Counteract environmental pollution

The smoke and residual water released from the manufacturing procedure by today’s fashion industries lead to considerable environmental pollution, both air, and water, thus contaminating our lifestyle.

  • Bring a change in climate

With the reduction of fast fashion industries, the usage of fossil fuels is also brought down, which ultimately promotes a change in climatic conditions gradually shifting towards a sustainable fashion route that assists in tackling the adverse effects of climate change.

  • Prevent respiratory diseases

The massive rate of air pollution directed by the factory residues leads to the growth of specific respiratory diseases like asthma and even caters to significant lung problems.

In a world booming with the fast fashion industries, Dharan is focusing on ethical fashion, without harming the environment. They maintain a tailored lineup of clothing options that cater to your fashion needs while keeping the environment safeguarded.
