We are wasting and rejecting a lot because we are consuming too much.
The clothing industry driven by the pressure of fast fashion & consumer demand is one of the worse culprits.
Polyester & other synthetic fibers are widely used because abundant, inexpensive & adaptable ...but polluting: High carbon emissions from production & hardly recyclable, non-compostable or biodegradable in marine and soil conditions
In the activewear industry, the majority of fabric is polyester or nylon based, treated with chemicals for "performance" or "odor resistance".
Buy less but better workout clothes made from non-synthetic fabrics. Good for your body, less impact on the environment.
They have great natural benefits, are better for the environment and the health of workers making them.
