The social dimension of the fashion industry is directly linked to SDG 5 on gender equality and 80 percent of the labour force throughout the supply chain are women.
SDGs can be drawn by looking at the recycling of clothing (target six on waste management under SDG 11):

By 2030, reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, including by paying special attention to air quality and municipal and other waste management
Addresses the issue of marine pollution such as microfibers and microplastics released into the oceans from cloth washing.

By 2030, ensure that people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature.
Furthermore, cotton production across the globe severely degrades soil quality, which calls for restoration as committed to by target three under SDG 15:

By 2030, combat desertification, restore degraded land and soil, including land affected by desertification, drought and floods, and strive to achieve a land degradation-neutral world

Textiles and clothing are a fundamental part of everyday life and an important sector in the global economy.
Globally, the EUR 1.14 trillion clothing industry employs more than 300 million people along
the value chain.
In the last 15 years, clothing production has approximately doubled and led to negative impacts on the environment and people.
WE UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT OF THE INDUSTRY THAT WE REPRESENT.

Billebeino is committed to leading the transition away from the fast fashion phenomenon.
The current clothing system is extremely wasteful and polluting.
