Government rejects MPs’ sustainable fashion guidance

Comment

The clothing Industry has to get its own house is in order, as I've been talking to customers for 40 years and not a single one has ever mentioned any environmental concerns regarding the product they are buying. If they want it, they'll buy it. The most environmentally friendly thing it can do is stop making far more product than there is demand. Stores and brand will have to act accordingly. This would then lower stock levels, become more efficient and in theory lead to less discounting. Win - Win. The consumer also needs to buy less, but buy well, as almost everybody to a lesser and greater extent buys far more clothing than they will ever need.
