Sustainable fashion at the 
UN Environment Assembly
11 to 15 March 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya

What you wear could save the planet.

Did you know that total greenhouse gas emissions from textiles production are more than those of all international flights and maritime shipping combined? Clothing producing has almost doubled in the last 15 years - yet every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned.

The way we make clothes is too wasteful. Our fast fashion model puts pressure on precious resources and pollutes the planet. Achieving a new textiles economy demands a new level of collaboration and action.

Next March, the fourth UN Environment Assembly will launch the UN Alliance on Sustainable Fashion. The Alliance  will push for action to reduce the negative social, economic and environmental impact of the fashion industry.
Are you ready for a cleaner fashion future?
