Uniqlo is the latest brand on a mission to change this. In its Jeans Innovation Center in Los Angeles, it has found a way to reduce its water consumption by 99%, following in the footsteps of Levi's and other brands.

But given the perilous state of the planet, are these incremental improvements enough? Or does the fashion industry need more radical change? Read more here.
