To prove to her class how “fast fashion” is harmful to the planet and to teach her students about sustainability, a middle school teacher in the U.S. wore the same dress to work every day for 100 days. She washed it a few times a week and wore different accessories with it, but it was the very same dress every day as this video shows.
This teacher took on a radical challenge to demonstrate how fast fashion hurts the planet.
