Mark Your Calendars for Our Making the Connection: Fast Fashion & the Environment Event

The term “fast fashion” refers to an approach to clothing design, creation, and marketing that emphasizes getting the newest trends from catwalks to consumers as quickly – and cheaply – as possible. But the environmental toll is high. 

Experts estimate that the fast fashion industry is responsible for nearly 10 percent of annual global emissions. It is the second-largest consumer of the world’s water supply. And that’s to say nothing of the dyes and other chemicals used during the production of those clothes.

Surprised? Want to learn more? Then mark your calendars: GASP is inviting you to an event designed to help you make the connection between air pollution (and other environmental degradation) and fast fashion.  

This will be the first in an educational series of events GASP is embarking on this year. The goal? To help folks understand the inner connectivity between air pollution, health, climate change, waste, and the choices we make every day at home, school, and work.  

Whether we are talking about fast fashion, food waste, planting trees, or cleaning our homes, there is a connection to air quality that this series will explore with participants.

Bonus: Participants will be exposed to the myriad organizations and businesses in the Pittsburgh region and beyond that are working to make our world a better, greener, more sustainable place. 

Making the Connection: Fashion & the Environment is slated from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 4 online. GASP will be joined by:
