World bank bubbles and billions of selfie pictures on the internet can sing a song about it. But isn't the biggest business on earth, to protect the world, because we only have one of it and not three hundred?! Because of this, even the fashion industry needs to find a way out of their selfish thinking to bring fashion in harmony with nature. Big labels and manufacturers often complain, organic and sustainable production is far way too expensive. It's true that environmentally friendly production costs more, but not as much as the major brands always assert.
They just simply have to be willing to give up a few percent of their margins. This is also the truth. Luckily more and more companies decide to go this earthfriendly way: hempage.de (Germany), Freshtex.com ( Germany),nvkdesign.it ( Italy), oatshoes.com ( Netherland), ramblersway.com ( USA), studiojux.com ( Netherland), talentedtotes.com( UK), the-hemp-line.com ( Germany), globehope.com ( Finland), decolores.de ( Germany), johnwshoes.de ( Germany), lavgon.it ( Italy), myomydogoods.com ( Netherland) and many many more...
