Detoxing Fashion

Students learn about the many toxic chemicals that are used to make our clothing, and how the industry is shifting toward eliminating these hazardous substances.

There are thousands of chemicals used in the making of our clothes, and many of these are toxic – polluting our air, soil and water.  And then there are the greenhouse gas emissions and toxic contributors to climate change as a result of the shipping of our clothes, the waste in landfill, and plastic packaging. In this one-hour live virtual workshop students will come to understand what action is being taken by the fashion industry to eliminate these hazardous chemicals, what “organic” means in the context of fashion, what to look for on a label when they are buying new clothes, and how to care for their clothes in a non-polluting way.
