As the organizers of the slow fashion event explain, “with this parade we want to make visible that there is a sustainable alternative to the big brands, that respecting the environment, Spanish start-ups create unique and high quality garments” highlighting that these brands are based on “Circular criteria, new consumption habits, manufacturing with sustainable and recycled materials, fighting to minimize their carbon footprint, and respecting ethical criteria throughout their production chain; without abusing workers with unworthy wages or subhuman conditions".
If you have not yet wondered how much it contaminates the clothes you wear, who makes it, where it is produced or what materials are used, it is already time. These are difficult times for the environment but among all of us we can give back to the planet that life that one day we take away. You dare?
