Vegan leather may sound like an oxymoron because, well, it is an oxymoron — but it’s also an alternative to leather that is not only more ethical, but also gentler on the planet. The trend to embrace vegan leather accessories, furniture, and more has grown significantly in recent years, to the point that it’s estimated to be worth $85 billion in the coming years. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Most “vegan leather” is made using polyurethane (a man-made, plastic-based alternative), which makes many people believe that natural leather is a healthier alternative. But fashion designer and environmental advocate @StellaMcCartney has an answer for those naysayers — click the link in bio to see what she has to say. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

The global fashion industry is second to only the gas/oil industry when it comes to pollution, thanks to the significant resources required to produce and distribute clothing all over the world. And as “fast fashion” grows in popularity, so does the amount of clothing and textile waste in the landfill.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In a world where more and more people see fast fashion as “disposable,” rental clothing companies are hoping to change the way we think. Instead of buying a piece you’ll only wear once — to follow a trend, or attend a special event — these companies make it possible to wear what you want, send it back, and give the next person the same opportunity.

Microfibers are teeny-tiny particles of synthetic fabrics that come off of our clothing while it's in the washing machine, making them a type of microplastic. The minuscule fibers travel through water pipes and enter oceans and rivers, where they are often consumed by sea animals and pollute the water. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ One item of clothing can produce more than 1,900 microfibers in just one wash cycle — and luckily, there are a few ways to reduce the amount of microfibers you produce.

Did you know that textiles make up about 5 percent of all landfills? This is because clothing that you get rid of — and even clothing you donated — often ends up in the landfill; that’s why it’s so important to make sure you are doing research about where you donate your clothes to make sure you are making the most ethical, and eco-conscious choice. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ One option is to donate the textiles directly, as almost all textiles can be recycled and reused in some capacity. Another popular option is to donate to organizations that will distribute your used clothing directly to people in need, rather than sell it at a profit and donate the money. To find out more about making an ethical choice when it comes to donating your clothes, click the link in bio. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
