Valuing Our Clothes: The Cost of UK Fashion

This WRAP report examines the environmental impact of the UK clothing industry. It highlights recent achievements in the sector, explores opportunities for businesses, and shares insights on consumer attitudes and behaviour toward clothing.

The key findings include:

  • Signatories of WRAP's Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP) have outperformed the rest of the industry for reductions in carbon, water, and waste;
  • The amount of clothing in household residual waste has reduced by 50,000 tonnes;
  • 700,000 tonnes CO2e saved through people changing their clothing care habits; and
  • Switching to sustainable fibres is one of the biggest opportunities for environmental savings.
