Abstract

The fashion industry is one sector that generates the most pollution globally due to the overproduction generated by the high demand for products. From its production to the end of its life cycle, it is negatively impacted by chemicals, water pollution, and solid waste; often, workers are exploited, and the likelihood that their health is affected in the long term. New entrepreneurs have emerged seeking to reduce the environmental impact, provide decent work, and offer sustainable alternatives for fashionable market niches, which is the reason why this paper analyzes the theory of sustainable paths for entrepreneurship associated with fashion, and in addition to that, brings real cases that aim to reduce the impact of the fashion industry by providing sustainable fashion products.
