Did you know:
The global fashion industry is valued at a crazy 2 trillion dollars as of today, and the only direction this number is going is upwards!
How wouldn’t it gain so much revenue?
After all, we all love following the latest trends in fashion and design. Often we buy new clothes for each great occasion, or exchange them each season. From the hats we wear on our heads, to the socks on our feet – we always want to be the most fashionable in the room. But can we really ignore the skeletons in our closets as we fill them with our most recent purchases and designer dresses?
Fast Fashion Is Slowly Killing Us All
The truth is, this flourishing clothing and apparel industry is slowly killing us all. Where we stand today, 10% of the world’s carbon footprint is a direct result of how things function in this industry. It is rapidly using up our freshwater reserves during a time where water conservation has never been so important.
Greenhouse gases during the production of various clothing items are among the biggest causes of global warming and climate change today.
But that is not all. In the clothing industry, polyester, nylon and many other plastic based, synthetic fabrics are relied heavily upon.
While the cost of production is lower, the waste and negative ecological impact is mountainous.
These particular types of fabrics are especially challenging to disintegrate, leaving them to clog landfills after being discarded.
While using up tons of precious, freshwater to manufacture these clothing items; the apparel industry also ends up polluting much of Earth’s reserves too.
Most clothing factories directly release their toxic waste into rivers and streams, making the water there unsafe for human use.
Plastic Microfibers have been identified as the largest, most urgent threat to our planet’s oceans to date.
Clothing Sector Stands 2nd, Right Below the Agriculture Sector
At present, the clothing industry stands second only to the agricultural sector when it comes to water pollution.
Another transgression that is quite common in the clothing and apparel industry is the violation of rights. Whether they are of humans or animals. Many animal species are brutally killed for their skin to make various fashion items. These species are driving to the brink of extinction because of these unethical practices. Many more are now listed as endangered by wildlife organizations such as WWF.
Similarly, there is little to no regard for human rights in the apparel industry. A lot of famous brands employ little children in an unsafe work environment to manufacture their products. Even worse, these workers in third world countries are working at low pay. And, they work for long hours without any break in between.
The clothing factories in countries such as Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan are inhumane. The workers undergo threats with their lives if they protest against these unethical practices. Moreover, they do not have a say; courtesy of ones sitting in powerful positions.
The socks available for purchase in your local box stores are responsible for allowing these practices to flourish. From irresponsibly made cotton, to human rights violations; America’s demand for convenience carries a devastatingly substantial impact on many different facets or our planet’s ecosystems and the life within.
The Apparel Industry May Be Harming Us And The Planet, But We Could Not Survive Without It Either
But what does this really mean? Should we all just give up shopping for new clothes? How would that work out for the human race?
Clothing ourselves with various articles allows us to express our identity safely. In addition to that, it is also an inherent need for all humans.
Unlike other primates, humans do not have a lot of body hair, fur, or feathers to protect themselves from extreme weather conditions. This is one of the most fundamental reasons why clothing was invented in the first place.
The right clothing can keep you warm in the winter, and shelter you from the blistering heat during the summer. It serves to protect your body from various elements and ensures safety and comfortability when you are out and about. If man had not learned to manipulate different fabrics into clothing items; we probably would not have survived to this day.
So, that’s for certain.
We surely cannot forsake the apparel industry altogether.
What options does that leave us?
The Answer Is Simple – Build A Sustainable Fashion Industry
A simple solution to this problem is to assure that our clothing is crafted from sustainably sourced materials. This is the biggest problem that the commercial apparel industry faces. In the previous two decades, there have been numerous attempts at making this notoriously harmful sector, a little more friendly towards the environment.
Today many brands are working towards improving the work practices at their production sites. In many places, the minimum wage is rising to a decent amount. Moreover, minimizing work hours is helping the workers to rest too. The workers can take reasonable breaks between those work hours; and minors are discouraged from working in especially dangerous settings.
In alignment with crafting products more responsibly, many brands are putting their sights on sustainability-focused textiles. These companies are also trying to make things better for the planet. Ahead of the, now aging, name brands, new waves of apparel vendors are rising in the market. This wave of champions are building their business’s foundations on more eco-friendly fabrics and manufacturing practices in the crafting of their items.
One of these new exciting startups is in North America. Known as Saye Socks, the company published their website storefront in early March of 2020. Their flagship line of ankle and crew socks for men and women are crafted from 100% Knit Bamboo Fiber Yarn.

our actions and hold the apparel industry accountable for every harm that they cause us.
We need to begin demanding ethical fashion practices from the biggest brands that rule the fashion clan. It is time that we started supporting the small ventures that are trying to break this vicious cycle. This is how we need to make a real difference in the world. It is high time that we switched from our unethically sourced cotton, nylon or polyester socks.
