Researchers map fashion’s environmental impact

Written by John Mowbray

STOCKHOLM - New Swedish Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) research has claimed that if the lifespan of an apparel garment could be increased by a factor of three, its carbon footprint and water use would both be cut by two thirds. The same research has also made the – somewhat dubious - claim that the transport of a garment from the retail outlet back to the user's home represents 25 per cent of its environmental impact.
