What Are The Disruptive Onslaughts That Fast Fashion Supply Chains Present to Ecosystems and Local Lifestyles, and How do We Conceive Supply Chains That Aren't Disruptive To Ecosystems and Locals Through Abolishing the Worldwide Industrial Disposition That Cost Efficiency Is the Only Priority

Abstract or project description

Globally, a supply chain is at the forefront of every commercial institution as it links a conceptualized element to a product sold to customers and then purchased by consumers. Supply chain maintenance is fundamental to the stability of every business; thus, such a ubiquitous business criteria as supply chain necessitates the agencies responsible for its maintenance to operate sustainably and ethically. Supply chains are a composite of multiple intricate components that are all interdependent indicators of the overall strength of a supply chain; these components are cost, time efficiency, sourcing, exportation, and importation. Unfortunately, the logistics consultants of firms are often avaricious and consumed by the notion that cost efficiency is the only priority concerning these components and none more so than the consultants of fast fashion brands. This notion predisposes manufacturing communities globally to exploitation because cost-cutting entails compensating workers with barely livable wages and distorting their environments and lifestyles. Along with viciously evading these communities with sweatshops, they task people worldwide with bearing the burden of their cost-saving improprieties by investing in cheaper transportation alternatives that significantly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions drastically induce climate change. Logistics coordinators of fast fashion brands are impetuous and employ egregious executions to augment the consumptive era and boost their profit. This research aims to highlight that in in any capitalistic society, the production of goods and services and their yield shouldn’t take precedence over the people who produce or consume them. Furthermore this research will harshly scrutinize the working conditions of garment workers and the effect of their occupations on their communities.
