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.
