Climate and nature are interconnected.
The health and future of our planet are dependent on nature. If we’re going to mitigate climate change and its devastating effects on humanity, we’ve got to protect and conserve biodiversity too.
Biodiversity should be a focus area for brands.
Many fibers and materials used in the fashion and textile industry today come from farms and forests. Brands are dependent on the healthy, functioning ecosystems needed to produce them, as well as on non-renewable, fossil-based resources. Supply security depends on individual material sourcing efforts and investments as well as collective, landscape-level action.
