    "Fashion is the second most environmentally damaging industry.... 3rd Jun 19 at 3:23 PM
    ....after coal and oil". That was according to Stacey Dooley Investigates Fashion's Dirty Secret on BBC2 last night (available on iPlayer of course).

    Seemed a strong statement, but even so, I had no idea it was so bad. Rather relevant to this consumer related website I thought. Well worth a watch.

    Particularly annoying was the collective corporate denial of the problem by the fashion retailers as there seems little chance of any legislative solution.

    So, it seems it's down to us the consumers to put pressure on them.....

    If you haven't seen it the documentary THE TRUE COST, is a massive eyeopener into the whole industry.

    thanks for the recommendation of The True Cost, tori.k. I have added it to my netflix list.

    piddles, I agree, the stonewalling Stacey got at that conference was quite depressing. I thought it was interesting that only the guy from Levi's was open to talking to her and genuinely seemed to understand that the fashion industry needs to address the issue. I guess that openess, insight and intelligence is why Levi's will be around a hundred years ago, and M&S, etc, won't.
