Time to change: Synthetic fibers like polyester produce significantly more carbon emissions than organic cotton

Sustainable fashion has been in vogue and on the radar since the early 1990s, but it’s only gone mainstream recently.

Synthetic fibers like polyester produce significantly more carbon emissions than organic cotton, and quite a few large brands were found to use some harsh chemicals to dye and manufacture their garments.

Either way, ethical and ecological clothing is catching on. H&M is the biggest user of organic cotton in the world, and brands like Nike and Zara have followed suit.
