It is no secret that the earth’s health is deteriorating at an alarming rate due to the various forms of pollution that the human population inflicted upon the earth. With the fashion and beauty industry being such a detriment to the environment, sustainable clothing is becoming more and more popular especially with millennials.In 2015, 73% of millennials were willing to pay more for a product that is sustainable (Nielsen, 2015). This demonstrates that this isn’t a trend and people are becoming more aware of their everyday purchases.
