Did you know your choice of clothing impacts the planet and the health of others? Many people are unaware of the issues in the Fashion Industry; Clothing is mass-produced for cheap to keep up with the trends of the modern day. Most of the clothing people get rid of is thrown into our dumps. As a result, there is an overflow of garbage because more clothes are being made than we can dispose of. The synthetic fibers, used to make clothes, take many years to decompose in landfills and releases methane, a greenhouse gas. This would make sense why the Fashion Industry is responsible for 10% of annual global carbon emissions.
Not only does the Fashion Industry impact the planet but also to the lives of people who are in developing countries producing the clothes. These employees are paid low wages and work in unsafe conditions. They also often work unregulated hours and do not have job security.
Ungalli Clothing Co. is a Social Enterprise that commits its time to making people aware of this issue to help promote a cleaner and safer approach to the Fashion Industry. Their solution is to turn to Plastic bottles and Recycled polyester to produce Clothing.
Ungalli is a successful enterprise because of its significant action that reflects the United Nations sustainable development goals: Climate change, Responsible consumption and production, and Good health and well-being.
