The activist said she hasn't bought something new in YEARS.
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.
