In the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, young entrepreneurs, engineers, and fashion designers are rallying for their ideals: to fight against the disastrous impact of the fashion industry on the environment. This sector is indeed the third most polluting in the world, while exploiting workers, who are mostly women.

The awareness of this ecological and social catastrophe by these young thirty-somethings resonates with others who are directly experiencing the consequences of fast fashion. In Chile, on the doorstep of the Atacama Desert, mountains of clothing from Western dumpsters loom large. Faced with a globalized and absurd textile waste management system, a generation is rising to invent new ways to produce and consume our clothing. Innovation and the concept of collectivism are the keywords in this international struggle.
