In February as Fashion Week kicks off around the globe, we delve into the world of “Fast Fashion” and its impact on the environment and industry workers. Fast Fashion refers to the cheaply made, mass produced garments, which not only produces millions of tons of greenhouse gasses, contributes to air pollution, and uses millions of gallons of water in its production, it often uses unethical work practices to produce the garments in other countries.

Watch these two short films from the comfort of your home and then join us to hear from Sophia Marie Poulos. Remake Ambassador and Fashion Designer.
