The fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry in the world.

Pesticides and insecticides used on crops grown for fabrics together with the chemicals used in the production of fabrics cause enormous damage to the environment.

In the drive towards a cleaner environment, some fashion designers are now going into the sustainable use of natural materials sourced from seas, oceans and lakes.
