Modern world is a world of awareness. People are getting more and more aware of the things. Globalisation and industrialised growth has benefited the customers by providing them with clothes, shoes, and other accessories at comparatively low prices. But the ethical fashionists strongly disagree with this. According to them, there is still some price which is not visible on price tags but we do pay it. It involves exploitation of the labour.
Industrialists cut down the pays of its labour in order to sell the products at a cheaper rate to win the competitive world. Children are also hired as labour as they demand lesser rates. Many factories are being set up. And the factory waste in the form of used chemicals and toxic wastes are dumped into open seas. These toxic materials in turn cause the marine life to die out slowly.
Hazardous chemicals are used as insecticides and pesticides in growing cotton. These chemicals are harmful not only to the farmers but to the environment as well. Recent studies have shown that CFCs that is chlorofluorocarbons are destroying the ozone layer. High street fashion has been transformed into disposable and cheaper clothing and other stuff, which ultimately results in throwing clothes at a greater rate.
In addition, animal fur is used in fashion styles. This is termed as animal cruelty. All these factors forced people to think over ethical requirements of following fashion and latest trends. In order to combat these challenges, ethical fashion has been introduced. It includes selling organic shoes and clothing, vegan and fair trade jewellery, fashion accessories, recycled clothing, and shoes etc.
Still we need to inform people more about the damages that are caused by globalisation and industrialisation in fashion industry. Paying less for the clothes is not a big reward that we achieve as compared to the cost we are paying for it.
