The holiday season is upon us, which means it's time to start coming up with
sustainable gift ideas
for everyone on your list. And when it comes to your fashion-loving friends who are always ahead of the trend, this is the year to ditch the
designer handbag
fast fashion brand
gift card for something a little more eco-friendly.
The fashion industry is notorious for polluting the planet. Did you know
20% of industrial water pollution
comes from textile dyeing and treatment plants? Not to mention, almost
190,000 tons of textile microplastics
end up in the ocean every year.
In addition to pollution, the overconsumption of clothes is a major problem for the environment. The average garment is only worn for three years, and many
discarded clothes end up in landfills
. Buying long-lasting, sustainably-made clothing can help promote a more eco-friendly fashion industry.
These gifts for fashion lovers weren't just made with the planet in mind, but are also built to last for years to come. From washable silk to organic knitwear, here are the best fashion gifts to
wrap up this year
