Sustainable clothing vs Fast fashion 2 2

Each week we discover something new about the negative impact the fast fashion industry is having in people´s live and our planet, because the abuse of resources, human and naturals. Confronting this challenge, people, aware and committed, decide to engage and be part of a global or local change. Our commitment for a better future may come from different routes, changing our consumption way of life, thinking about the impact of our daily life, or why not, sewing our own clothes.

The DIY (Do It Yourself) movement and attitude is growing faster for some years now. The list of introductory workshops offered, creative sewing magazines sold, and number of interactions on Pinterest focused on DIY tips, are only few, but strong indicators of the power this movement is acquiring globally. Nevertheless, the DIY movement is having greater impact and seems to serve as powerful injection of motivation for creativity. What started as a hobby becomes stronger and more stable with business projection. The number of makers and sustainable aimed fashion projects increased, but it is this trend having a real impact on the fast fashion industry? Which are the other elements having an influence in the development of sustainable fashion initiatives?
