I always find that facts & figures are the best friends of every argument… so here we go:

3.13%: the fashion industry’s proportion of the global GDP
2nd: the fashion industry takes the spot as the world‘s second biggest poluter – right behind the oil industry
20%: of industrial water pollution comes from treating and dyeing textiles
6th: every sixth person works in the fashion industry (70% of them are women)
