fast fashion leaves a pollution footprint, with each step of the clothing life cycle generating potential environmental hazards. For example, polyester, the most widely used manufactured fiber, is made from petroleum. The manufacture of polyester and other synthetic fabrics is an energy-intensive process requiring large amounts of crude oil and releasing emissions acid gases which can cause disease. the waste products of polyester production are put in the water. many textile manufacturing facilities have hazardous waste generators. Much of the cotton produced in the United States is exported to China and other countries with low labor costs, where the material is milled, woven into fabrics, cut, and clothes are made. China is the largest exporter of fast fashion, this means some Chinese workers make as little as 12--18 cents per hour working in poor conditions. And with the fierce global competition that demands ever lower production costs, many clothe companies are lowering clothes prices, even if it means lower wages and poor conditions for workers. spread the love for handmade clothing and d.i.y clothing its mor eco friendly.
