Have you ever heard the term ‘Beauty is Pain’? Have you ever suspected that the sweater you put on could give you a cold, rash or something even worse? You may be a fashion victim.

Textile pollution is the #2 pollutant to the landfill only next to oil. We will discuss the costs of fashion and how our clothing choices may be killing us by digging into the difference between fast and slow fashion as well as solutions on what we can do differently.
