Fashion industry, the biggest contributor of pollution after oil and gas, needs to get rid of its dirty practices, production methods and trends that ravage the Earth and its inhabitants economically, socially and environmentally.

A new report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation recommends a string of measures that the apparel industry must immediately adopt if it has to contain the damage, writes Tree Hugger.

The rise of fast fashion presents a new challenge as the markets for consumption of secondhand clothes shrinks while the heap of these “trendy” apparels keeps mounting at the landfill sites, notes The Sydney Morning Herald.
