Fast fashion is the world's second largest polluter, emitting 10% of all carbon emissions and is dumped into lands and oceans all over the world. In Our compilation of video and photography come together to evoke empathetic response in our viewers. By seeing humans absorbed in plastic, we mirror the way our Earth and animal habitats are being covered in clothes and garbage every day. One solution we provide is upcycled fashion - turning old clothes/materials into ones that can be worn again, rather than thrown away, or buying new.

Thank you to the WRI (World Resources Institute) for their constant support and insight for this project, as well as Yasmin Gibson and Maureen Furniss.
