Welcome to ECO-UNESCO’s course on Fast Fashion!
Fast Fashion is having detrimental effects on our planet: on people and on the environment.
This course will take you through the meaning of fast fashion and how to spot a fast fashion brand. We’ll explore the causes, consequences and the solutions of fast fashion! These are actions that we can all take to help us be more sustainable with the clothes we have and buy! The important thing to remember is that you are not expected to do everything we discuss in this course – pick one or two things to start with and go from there! It is better to start off small on your sustainable clothing journey than to feel overwhelmed and not know where to start.
Each lesson contains multiple topics and quizzes – you earn points with every quiz! When you have completed a topic or lesson, click “Mark Complete” and move on to the next one. You will be able to track your progress in the progress bar at the top of the page, and your points on the course page.
