Our environment is taking a hit from the growing consumption of goods and its effects, especially the excess waste it produces. This is particularly true when we talk about fast fashion. In order to impact our shared future, we have to find new ways to make the field of fashion more sustainable. This will have a direct impact on the lives of millions of women around the world. 

We need to act now.

We at the Kota Alliance want to contribute to the realization of the UN Sustainable Development Goals; tipping the scales and bringing more visibility to the sustainable, environmentally conscious, and ethical actors in the field of fashion.

We recently co-hosted a panel discussion with the title Increasing Transparency in the Fashion Industry to Promote Inclusive Growth with Hecho por Nosotros and Animana as part of the 57th UN Commission for Social Development. Read a blog post about the discussion here.
