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.
