WEEK ONE.

Investigating my Fashion Footprint

During this week we were set to find out what our Fashion Footprint is and see how environmentally friendly we were with out clothes. Using a website we were set to answer a set of questions as accurately as you can. This didn’t take long and the results were instant. After answering the questions my results came in and I was set with a Medium Fashion Footprint. Nor was I bad but I wasn’t good either.

According to the website I have a 24% higher footprint than the average person. As well as highlighting that my fashion habits contribute 2,002 lbs of CO2e annually.
