TOOWOOMBA CITY - Increasing the number of times that garments are worn is a more effective way of reducing the fashion industry's environmental impacts than replacing synthetic fibres with natural fibres, according to a new report.

Researchers from the Integrity Ag & Environment consulting service in Australia and the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, a government agency, carried out the study, published in the Resources, Conservation and Recycling peer-reviewed journal.

Entitled 'Strategies to reduce environmental impacts from textiles: Extending clothing wear life compared to fibre displacement assessed using consequential LCA', it concludes that increased wears per garment life was beneficial for all fibre types and environmental indicators.
