Sustainable Fashion: Take Action
In 2008 we sought to ask the questions and start the conversations about “why now” with sustainability and fashion when we wrote the first edition of this book. We supported the 1987 Brundtland Report definition of sustainable development, “ development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” In 2022, with this third edition, as people are being compromised, and we need to present a fresh exploration of practices and innovative action required to reduce climate change and improve the well-being of all people as they choose and wear clothing. We must shift our vision toward a circular model, where the product lifecycle is continual.
Our goal with this third edition is to inspire the reader with a vision and foundation to formulate their ideas and responses to the question, “How will you take action?”
