Project Title and Description

"Our Clothes Destroy The Environment And Therefore Our Planet"                                     

Course:    EAP 1686

Instructor: Helen Roland


We learned and realized that behind the textile industry, there are many ways in which the environment is destroyed and poisoned; therefore, animal life and human life are affected. Unfair things also happen with thousands of people who work behind all these clothes that we wear and throw away without being aware of all these abuses. After watching videos, reading articles with alarming and real figures of how disproportionate the textile industry is, it allows us to raise awareness and begin to make changes about our culture of compulsive purchases of garments and clothing waste irresponsibly.
