The effect of Fast Fashion promoted by SHEIN on earth

What is “Fast Fashion”? Fast Fashion is a term used for garments made cheaply and of very bad quality, rapidly produced, made mostly out of polyester and cycled in and out of the market to meet new and swift fashion standards and trends. Shein is a big contributor to this mode of retail (if not the biggest). Since these garments go in and out of fashion, instead of the traditional seasonal collections (spring-summer and autumn-winter) of most fashion houses, including Haute couture maisons, these garments, made mostly out of plastic are dumped into the nature, specially deserted places where nobody can see it, like the Atacama Desert in Chile. This is just the top of the iceberg, SHEIN has been denounced internationally for the use of forced, if not slave, labor, as well as child labor in the production of their items, specially by Uyghur slaves in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The imprisonment of the Uyghur in concentration camps is so notorious internationally that several human aid committees, including even the United States Congress, have denounced its practices and forbidden exportation from said region.

A brief overview on SHEIN

SHEIN might be significantly cheaper than other brands, but at what cost? The landfill in the Atacama Desert and its carbon footprint have been notoriously affecting the environment, as well as its notorious human rights violations, and for what? For garments made almost entirely out of plastic and of terrible quality. One should think twice before contributing to this vile system just to conform to trends and other vain tendencies. For this, the app deserves nothing more than 1/5 stars.
