My research consists of analysis of the fashion industry’s impact on the environment. I will be researching and interviewing industry leaders within the fashion industry to better understand their corporate policies regarding waste and pollution throughout the lifespan of an article of clothing. I will be putting an emphasis on the recycling programs companies have put in place to extend the life of their clothing. The purpose of this project is to dig into the clothing industry and better understand how much clothing is wasted and to understand what steps companies are taking to reduce their waste. I intend on researching leaders in sustainable fashion like Patagonia as well as companies who are starting to enact environmental policies within their company such as H&M.
