Project Title and Description

"The Problem of the Negative Impact of the Clothing Industry on the Environment (Effects)"         UN Sustainable Development Goals #12  

Course:     EAP 1686

Instructor: Helen Roland


This project analyzes the negative effects of the clothing industry on the environment. It demonstrates how fast fashion is a waste of our resources. The fact that we are throwing clothes away in landfills is very harmful to our environment. Also, it indicates that doing laundry is not good for the environment. Every time we do laundry, microfibers turn into the ocean and poison of our food chain.
