Why is fashion absent from global action on plastic pollution?
The rough draft of the Global Plastics Treaty by the United Nations Environmental Assembly and the Chair of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee was released on Monday and it marks a step towards reducing global plastic pollution, yet the fashion industry is absent from its pages. "The fact that the draft does not mention fibres at all, arguably fashion's primary use of plastic, is the latest reminder of the disconnect between policymakers eyeing environmental initiatives and the realities of the fashion industry's impacts," Rachel Cernansky writes for Vogue Business. Fashion needs to be an active player in the plastic pollution conversation, not only to address the industry's specific concerns, but also to reduce its plastic consumption. {Vogue Business/paywalled}
