In The World Before, the fashion industry was polluter number 2 in the world. The world consumes about 80 billion new pieces of clothing every year, about 4 times more than the amount we consumed just two decades ago. We also discard clothing at exorbitant rates. The U.S. alone wastes more than 11 million tons of textile per year. Clothing has changed from a personal product to something disposable. We are over consuming textiles, but this might change in The World After.
