Impacts of shipping: Discharging ballast water at destination port
When ships reach their destination and no longer need the ballast water, they discharge it back into the ocean. However, this water may contain organisms like plants, animals, bacteria, or pathogens from the original location. These non-native species, also known as invasive species, can be well-adapted to their original habitat but cause harm when introduced to new ecosystems.

7 Benefits of ethical fashion | Why sustainable fashion matters
It takes 700 gallons of water to make ONE t-shirt - That’s how much water we drink over 3 years. Imagine throwing away 10 t-shirts per year because you bought them cheap on sale, and they just don’t look new anymore. That’s 7,000 gallons of water used to create those… now in our landfills. Sustainable fashion brands use higher quality materials that last YEARS, meaning you don’t have to throw away your basic t-shirts anytime soon. Plus, they utilize processes that use less water to produce.
