EXTINCTION REBELLION SPOKESPERSON, ORNELLA BELEN, SAYING:

"Fast fashion drives multiple seasons throughout the year, generating a lot of waste of clothing that often is not even used and uses large amounts of water for its production. It is responsible for 20% of industrial wastewater and is the second most polluting industry, producing up to 10% of global carbon emissions. Emissions of these greenhouse gases accelerate the climate and ecological crisis we are currently experiencing."
