Life Cycle of a T-Shirt

Students learn about the life cycle of a t-shirt and its impact on the environment across the entire supply chain.

The fashion industry is global, and with that comes a massive supply chain. From the design phase through to the end of a garment’s life, the process of making our clothes leaves a huge environmental footprint. In this one-hour live virtual workshop, students learn about the life cycle of a t-shirt – from seed to shirt – with an emphasis on carbon emissions, chemicals and waste. But the cycle continues once we buy clothes, through to the end of its life, which also comes with a heavy footprint (think washing, drying, disposing). Students will also learn what role they play in the life cycle and what actions they can take to reduce the negative environmental impacts.
