  时装产业每年为英国经济贡献二百八十亿英镑的产值,然而人们对很多衣服的利用率极低,应该采取何种措施减轻制造新衣服对环境的影响呢? [ti:小e英语] [ar:小e英语时装产业每年为英国经济贡献二百八十亿英镑的产值。 [00:06.40]MPs (Members of the British Parliament) say British shoppers buy far more new clothes than any nation in Europe. 英国议会议员们称,英国消费者购买的新衣服数量比欧洲任何国家都多。 [00:11.96]Clothing production has more than doubled globally over the last 15 years, and in the UK were buying twice as much as we were buying 15 years ago. “全球服装产量在过去的十五年间增长了一倍多,而在英国,我们的购买量是十五年前的两倍。 [00:22.21]What that means when we have more clothes is that were using them, were wearing them less. 这意味着当我们有更多的衣服时,时装产业对环境的影响 该如何尽力避免?使用或穿每件衣服的次数变少了。” [00:27.12]But what happens to all these clothes that are loved and then junked? 但是那些被爱过又被人丢弃的衣服究竟命运如何呢? [00:31.91]This warehouse in North London sorts some of them and sends them to charity shops for resale. 这个位于北伦敦的仓库对其中一些进行了分类,然后送到慈善商店转卖。 [00:38.51]That saves the environmental impact of making new clothes. 这样就减轻了制造新衣服对环境的影响。 [00:42.32]But its only a tiny proportion of garments and shoes that get recycled. 但只有一小部分服装和鞋子被回收。 [00:46.58]Most are scrapped with around 80% ending up in landfill - around 20% getting incinerated. 大部分则沦为废品,约80%被倒入垃圾填埋场,而20%左右则化为灰烬。 [00:54.45]We as retailers have a really big responsibility in making sure that those clothes are as sustainable as possible, “作为零售商,我们有很大的责任来确保服装对环境的长期影响越小越好, [01:00.75]and we know from the figures that weve been looking at, working with government, how we have cut things like energy and water use. 我们从数据中了解到,通过与政府的合作,我们已逐步减少了能源和水的用量。 [01:06.98]Theres much more we can do. 我们能做的还有很多。” [01:08.24]The MPs welcome the move but say there is a fundamental problem with an industry that relies on people throwing away good clothes because theyre last years colour. 英议会议员们对这一举措表示欢迎,但他们表示,这个行业的兴盛存在一个根本问题,即依靠消费者扔掉色彩过季的好衣服。 [01:19.47]They say fashion firms must try harder.他们说,时装公司应为环保做出更多努力。
