Sustainable fashion in San Francisco

A global crisis 

Forests are responsible for half the oxygen produced on the planet, it filters Co2 and protects our shores, forests are some of our best allies towards fighting climate breakdown.  It is also for the following interesting facts that we chose forests as a cause for our sustainable fashion brand in San Francisco. 
- Forests cover 30% of the earth’s land.
- It is estimated that within 100 years there will be no rainforests.
- Agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation
- One and a half acres of forest is cut down every second
- Loss of forests contributes between 12 percent and 17 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. (World Resources Institute)
- If the current rate of deforestation continues, it will take less than 100 years to destroy all the rainforests on the earth.
- The rate of deforestation equals the loss of 20 football fields every minute.
- There are more than 121 natural remedies in the rain forest which can be used as medicines.
 - The over-exploitation of forests is making it extremely difficult to replant a new ecology.
- Up to 28,000 species are expected to become extinct by the next quarter of the century due to deforestation.
To fight deforestation, Wafity as partnered up with Pledgeling's reforestation fund to plant at least 11 trees for every item purchased.
