STOCKHOLM – Researchers from Sweden have presented Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) findings from five different clothing garments to improve the understanding of fashion's environmental effects. The researchers found that the clothing production phase bears the greatest environmental burden in a garment's life cycle, as opposed to laundry which many previous LCAs have held accountable as being the most environmentally damaging.
