Green Horizons_Environmentally Fashionable

According to Oxfam Ireland, half a tonne of clothing every minute is dumped into a landfill in Ireland. That amount produces over 12 tonnes of carbon emissions – the same as driving 65,000 kilometres in a car. Buying just one white cotton shirt produces the same amount of emissions as driving 56 kilometres in a car. In this programme Ben, Sadie, Jack and Eoin discuss why buying cheap is expensive in the long term and alternatives to fast fashion.
