“Never anything but pure greenwash” – Greta Thunberg calls out fashion industry

Published

on

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has used an interview with Vogue Scandinavia to call out fashion brands that label themselves as “sustainable”

In the interview, Thunberg says that clothing brands need to take more responsibility for the environmental impacts that the production and distribution of their products has.

It follows the activist posting a tweet that accuses some brands of “greenwashing” whereby they produce ads that make consumers think their products are sustainable.

In the interview, Thunberg says the last time she purchased a new item of clothing was three years ago and even it was second-hand.

The climate activist went onto note that fast fashion is used by many as “disposable”… calling for a “system change”.

Fast fashion is known to be the production of “rapid, low-cost clothing” designed to meet seasonal trends

The UN believes the fashion industry is “the second-most polluting industry in the world”… accounting for more than 20% of wastewater globally.

In regards to carbon emissions, the sector is responsible for about 8% of the total worldwide.

This follows a landmark climate change report concludes global warming is widespread, rapid and intensifying – and humans are to blame.

According to the report – climate change is now “affecting every inhabited region across the globe”.

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

Published

on

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
