Fashion can be fun, but it can also hurt people, animals and the planet.

Fashion Forward: Striving for Sustainable Style goes behind the glitz and glamour to explore the social and environmental issues within the fashion industry. It looks at the history of fashion, from why humans started wearing clothes to the birth of consumerism to the explosion of fast fashion and fashion's footprint. The book introduces readers to the innovative people, companies and organizations that are taking positive action on fashion. Kids will discover how to make ethical choices and become fashion heroes for the future. There are easy ways we can help transform the fashion industry and still look stylish at the same time!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The encouraging tone of this Orca Footprints title comes largely from the author's commitment to walking the walk. Delisle incorporates personal experiences as she delivers facts about the fashion industry and tips for building an ethical wardrobe. The first two chapters dig into why the clothing industry is problematic, revealing a host of issues largely stemming from fast fashion. Some of these include pollution, excessive consumption of fresh water, sweatshop and child labor, cultural appropriation, and more. It's a lot to take in, but the remaining two chapters are devoted to making a difference by changing how we shop. Delisle encourages buying less, purchasing sustainable brands, and embracing "preloved fashion," whether through apps like the RealReal and ThredUp or clothing swaps and secondhand stores. She also adds to the three Rs of recycling, suggesting that readers research, repurpose, repair, and rent clothing. This book is well organized and features photos, "Fashion Fact" boxes, and examples of young fashion activists. Useful websites are appended to help kickstart the journey to a conscious closet."
