Fashioning Wales’s Future - our path to sustainable fashion and textiles
We’re facing a cost-of-living crisis and a climate emergency. How can fashion be more affordable, without costing the Earth?
The fashion industry is estimated to be responsible for around 10% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. It’s the second dirtiest industry in the world, next to the oil industry.
Of course, we have a limited influence on the global fashion industry, and many of the policy interventions that would help make a difference here are still reserved to Westminster, but when it comes to ideas and innovation, Wales has the potential to be a world leader in sustainable fashion.
