The Curious Life of a T-Shirt

The Life of a T-Shirt

For years, a T-shirt has been the go-to casual clothing for most people. We buy shirts from graphic to crew neck tees all the time. There is nothing wrong about buying a lot of fashion pieces, but due to today’s norm of throwaway fashion, we end up tossing used shirts into the bin once they go out of style or when we need to clear up more closet space. Not all shirts are biodegradable and this results to the apparel industry becoming a prime contributor to landfill waste globally.

This insightful infographic from Urban Times by Harley Ray Barron provides an in-depth look on what goes on in the life span of a t-shirt. It outlines how the simple production of this ordinary piece of clothing hugely affects the environment as well as how we, end users of style and fashion, can make simple changes in our consumer behavior.
