Fast fashion speeding toward environmental disaster, report warns. The fashion industry needs to fundamentally change in order to mitigate the environmental impact of fast fashion, experts have said.
Clothes rental, better recycling processes, pollution control technology and the innovative use of offcuts are among measures that could help, they said.
