Must-Watch Fashion Sustainability Documentaries

Indonesia’s rapid economic growth has led to an increased appetite for fast fashion. The textile and apparel industry is now one of the country’s top five industries, employing millions. Indonesia generates an estimated 2.5 million tons of textile waste annually. This figure is projected to continue rising due to increased consumption and disposal.

The alarming increase in fast fashion consumption and textile waste highlights the urgency of implementing sustainable practices, such as recycling, reducing consumption, and promoting ethical fashion choices to mitigate the environmental and social impacts.
