It’s well documented that fast fashion has an incredibly negative impact on the environment due to its emphasis on low cost and speed. Critics often call it out for its use of toxic chemicals, causing water pollution and increasing levels of textile waste.
Over in Singapore, market research company YouGov found that a third (34 per cent) of 4,097 respondents in the country have thrown away an item of clothing after wearing it just once and, in the past year alone, 15 per cent of all respondents have thrown away at least three items that they’ve only worn once. What’s most alarming is 30 per cent of millennials say they have purchased at least half of the clothes that they own in the past year alone.
