Fast fashion is one of many major threats to our planet. From the carbon and microplastic pollution involved with the creation, to the 81 pounds of clothing the average American throws away yearly. And this is not all, synthetic fabrics that are used to make cheaper clothing are plastic and can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. By signing this pledge, you are committing to living more sustainably. Whether that means donating clothes rather than throwing them away, or supporting sustainable fashion brands, any level of commitment greatly helps the planet. This pledge is created by Young Activists for Change. Young Activists for Change is a high school run non-partisan non-profit based on a 50-year-old campaign model created by the Student PIRGs.
