What is Fast Fashion?

Clothes Hanging on a display
Fast Fashion refers to inexpensive clothing that is produced, consumed, and ultimately disposed of at an alarmingly rapid rate.

The EPA reports that Americans generate 16 million tons of textile waste a year, and with fast fashion producers churning out more and more clothing, we’re stuck in a wasteful loop that hurts our environment and our pocketbooks.

Will you pledge with us to re-purpose clothing you already have? Consider buying used clothing, and donate your usable clothing items? And if you do need something new, can you invest in quality items made to last?
