ESD – Education for Sustainable Development

ESD – Education for Sustainable Development means being aware of how things are, but also changing them concretely.

To rethink a present – before a future – more sustainable, efficient and healthier.

WHY DO WE NEED ALTERNATIVES TO FAST FASHION?

 

 

In recent years, the world of fast fashion has led to the production of more and more amounts of low quality garments. Fashion has become one of the most polluting industries in the world:

  • 78 million tons of industrial textile waste end up in landfills or incinerators every year
  • the fashion industry is responsible for 10% of global CO2 emissions

For this reason, it has become necessary to find alternatives to fast fashion: slow fashion was born, and Nazena with it.

CIRCULAR ECONOMY: THE HEART OF THE ALTERNATIVES TO FAST FASHION

 

Adopting a circular economy system provides a real solution to the problems caused by fast fashion.

Recycling and transforming waste means:

1. Reintroduce them into the supply chain, avoiding CO2 emissions caused by disposal in landfills or incinerators

2. Creating new products preserving virgin resources and protecting the ecosystem

3. Avoid waste by reusing materials that are still good

4. Choose a model of sustainable and ethical development, which reduces pollution and increases social and economic well-being
