Leonardo DiCaprio has highlighted the impact of fashion industry on climate change.

Urging the authorities, the Killer Of The Flower Moon star shared the note on his Instagram to bring the attention on the serious ongoing issue of climate change.

He kicked off his post, “The fashion industry has implications on the environment. It can lead to chemical runoff, waste sent to landfills or dumped on the Global South, and exploitation of garment workers.”


DiCaprio, who is more vocal on environmental issues, explained, “New York is poised to take a leadership role in addressing this industry with The Fashion Act, which will raise the floor for the $2.5 trillion industry, so the next generation is not left with a climate, micro plastic, biodiversity, and human crisis.”

The Inception star went on to say, “The bill’s supporters, who are urging the governor to sign, include not only environmental and environmental justice organizations and labor leaders within the supply chain.”
