Sustainability has been a hot topic in the news the past couple of years. There has been a strong sense of urgency to start living a cleaner and eco-friendlier lifestyle, with hopes to slow the possible irreversible effects on the environment and leave the future a better place.
Consumers are beginning to take preventative measures, with help from companies who have begun to raise awareness, to limit the amount of waste they are putting into the environment. One big area of focus is textile use. Consumers are taking a stand when it comes to participating in sustainable fashion. In 2015, The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 10.5 million tons of textiles wound up in landfills.
