After mining and agriculture, fashion is the third most polluting industry in the world. Fast fashion is the boon of modern lifestyle and the bane of sustainability. Clothes today are often made of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials that are not desired for more than a season and quickly disposed. Musician-turned-cheesemaker Alex James seeks to find the solution to the damning effects of fast fashion by talking to designers, activists, high street fashion brands.
