“We can no longer use plastics to create poorly made garments which are designed to be worn only a handful of times. These use large amounts of energy and create environmental damage in their production, and can take thousands of years to break down,” she said.

We can’t use cotton and so on because that uses up vital resources. We can use plastics because they come from oil.

Green always does come down to this, doesn’t it?
