Greta Thunberg Went Off About 'Fast Fashion' On Social Media

On Sunday, August 8, climate activist Greta Thunberg spoke out on social media about the fashion industry and its contribution to "the climate [and] ecological emergency."

She said that the fashion industry is a huge contributor, "not to mention its impact on the countless workers and communities who are being exploited around the world in order for some to enjoy fast fashion that many treat as disposables."

Thunberg went on to note that "many are making it look as if the fashion industry [is] starting to take responsibility, by spending fantasy amounts on campaigns where they portray themselves as 'sustainable', 'ethical', 'green', 'climate neutral' and 'fair'."

She said that mass-producing fashion or consuming sustainably simply isn't possible in today's world and that the entire system needs to change.

The 18-year-old made this post following an interview with Vogue Scandinavia in which she said that she hasn't bought something new since three years ago and even then, it was second-hand.

Greta Thunberg joined a group of protestors at the COP26 climate change summit in Scotland and was spotted leading one of the raucous chants.

A video of the Swedish activist shows her singing "you can shove your climate crisis up your arse" in a park in Glasgow, apparently directing the message at world leaders.
