Swedish eco-activist Greta Thunberg starred for the cover of the Scandinavian version of Vogue and criticized the fashion industry. The BBC reports this.
In the frames posted on the magazine’s Instagram, the 18-year-old celebrity poses in the forest with horses. She was captured in a beige suit consisting of a sweater and trousers, and a maxi-length trench coat of the same color. Thunberg was also photographed in a white jumper and a voluminous multicolored cardigan.
It is known that in an interview with Vogue, the activist accused representatives of the fashion industry of environmental pollution. Thus, according to the United Nations (UN), the fashion industry is second among industries that harm nature.
It is noted that about 93 billion cubic meters of water are used annually for clothing production — this is enough to ensure the vital activity of five million people. In addition, the industry emits eight percent of the total carbon dioxide emissions in the world into the atmosphere.
Thunberg also said that most brands mislead consumers about the environmental benefits of their products. The activist stressed that the last time she bought clothes was three years ago in a second-hand store. “I just borrow things from friends,” she assured.
