The global textile industry is a leading cause of water pollution.
The production of new fabric consumes huge amounts of clean water. The leftover "industrial wastewater" goes back into the water supply.
Most textile workers are young women in their teens and twenties.
These women are worked to exhaustion, vulnerable to abuse, and face high rates of cancer and other diseases from exposure to factory pollutants.
Americans send 13.1 million tons of textiles to landfills annually.
That's about 70 pounds per person. Over 90% of textiles are recyclable.
