Sustainable fashion, also called eco-fashion, is design philosophy growing in popularity. The goal is to create a system of dressing the masses which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility.

Eileen Fisher is also starting to employ this Circular Design model. There are a lot of brands out there to choose from who are trying to be more sustainable.

Millions of these fibers, which can be 60 to 100 times finer than your hair, escape with the wastewater from washing machines. They also fall off as we move around (although in lesser numbers). We are breathing them in and we are drinking them—micro-plastics have been found in 83 percent of drinking water. The scope of the problem is a little intimidating but there are things you can do.
