"Slow Fashion is about quality, not speed,” said Safia Minney, pioneer of ethical fashion and founder of the People Tree brand. "As consumers we can buy more second-hand, upcycled and vintage items, and with the money we’ve saved buy sustainably produced clothes. Fast fashion is not fast. Polyester, for example, is made from oil, which takes a long time to process, at a cost to the climate and the land.” 'Slow Fashion' is also the title of her book.
