Sustainable Fashion Forum hosts an avant-garde fashion installation about the environmental effects of fashion

If you live in the Portland area or happen to be visiting this eco-friendly city on April 13, 2019, go see a very interesting art installation brought to you by the Sustainable Fashion Forum. The organization has partnered with Scrap PDX, Spin Laundry Lounge and Cerulean Winery to bring this informative piece of art to you.

Think about all of the micro-plastics in these shopping bags that are going straight into our water everytime someone does a load of laundry

More than 60% of all clothing made today contains synthetic materials and fibers (aka PLASTIC).One single garment can shed up to 700,000 fibers alone so it’s no surprise that it’s estimated that 35% of microplastic released into the ocean each year is the result of washing synthetic textiles. What’s scarier, it’s estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish!” (source: sustainabe fashion forum)
