Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable
May 4: Wear not, waste not
Consumers are becoming much more aware of their clothing purchases and the impact of those choices on people and the environment. Textile production in the U.S. is an incredibly resource-intensive process, requiring immense amounts of water, fossil fuels, and chemicals that play a role in creating just a single item of clothing.
