In this fast-paced world, sustainability has taken a back-seat in numerous industry. Apparel & Fashion is one of them. Everyone is chasing fashion so blindly that we often ignore its dark spots on the environment. Fashion is all about choices – choices that you make for yourself and for our mother earth.

According to a report by MarketLine, the global apparel industry has been growing at a yearly rate of 4.78% yearly since 2011. Now the sales value of apparel and fashion in the year 2017 was 1.4 trillion dollars. There’s no sign to slow down the growing market of apparel and fashion as the market is projected to experience 5.91% yearly growth over the next three years.

By 2020, the market value of apparel and fashion is expected to reach a mind-boggling 1.65 trillion sales in US dollars worldwide. And so, it’s the waste. The more we buy, the more we discard.

And then, what happens to the discarded clothes? 4/5th go into the waste disposal stream and 1/5th goes into recycling and sorting streams.

“57% of all discarded clothing ends up in landfill”.

While brands and industry leaders are all set with their advance sustainability strategies. Here are 5 trends embracing sustainability like anything.

Before I start, I would like to emphasize on the baseline of sustainable fashion.

Do More with Less:

Your wardrobe doesn’t need to be overflowed with clothes to give the best of your look. All you need to do is the streamline the wardrobe and explore more to wear with less clothes. The process of streamlining your clothes starts with streamlining your choice. With each piece that you plan to buy, look for the alternate options to wear it. Mix-and-match can do much better than you can imagine, and moreover, it will give you an exclusive look every time.

And don’t feel embarrassed to repeat clothes. When Mark Zuckerberg can wear his grey t-shirt religiouslywhy can’t you? And when you have much more important thing to focus, fashion becomes frivolous.

 So, keep your wardrobe capsule enough to grab and go!
