Wakefield MP urges retailers to consider their Carbon Footprint

Mary Creagh wants 'Fast Fashion' to be addressed

Retail bosses are facing scrutiny over what's being described as "fast fashion".

A group of MPs - led by Wakefield MP Mary Creagh - are worried about the environmental impact - with thousands of tonnes of clothes ending up in landfill as consumers move on to the next trend.

There's also concern about the working conditions of those in the supply chain.

Ms Creagh chairs the Environmental Audit Committee and has written to the UK's top fashion retailers.
