Extinction Rebellion Ibiza signed another one of his shocking actions. The afternoon of Tuesday, October 6, 2020, Extinction Rebellion (XR) Ibiza paraded through the streets of Ibiza city to educate citizens about the Dangers of compulsive use of fast fashion o “fast fashion”.
And it is that our current lifestyle exceeds the limits of the planet and has fatal social and environmental consequences that put the game on the future of the next generations.
The action “Fashion Victims”, which consisted of a parade of live mannequins in one of the main commercial streets of Ibiza, is part of the actions organized by XR del October 5 to 13, 2020 in its Third Rebellion in Italy, France, Spain and other countries.
Extinction Rebellion (XR) reminds us that fashion is the second most polluting industry on the planet, after the oil company. In fact, global production of clothing and footwear generates 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, una cifra muy superior a la de todos los vuelos y transportes marítimos internacionales juntos. Algo que deberías tener presente cada vez que te entre el mono de ir de “shopping”.
But also, along with the enormous environmental pollution generated by this industry, are the terrible working conditions of workers of the textile sector, whose factories are usually located in countries with limited or no labor rightssuch as China, Bangladesh or Vietnam, where often our clothing is made by workers in semi-slavery or by children.
Thus, fashion is revealed as a tremendously harmful industry for the planet and for society, also putting endangered the survival of many species, including humans.
The XR Ibiza initiative had the support of the movement Fashion Revolution Ibiza, that we have told you about on more than one occasion, y que aboga por una industria de la moda transparente, sostenible y responsable con el medio ambiente y la sociedad.
