Abstract: The purpose of this paper was to investigate the overview of sustainability in apparel manufacturing industry and why environmentally and socially sustainable practices are being adopted by developing country suppliers and how the implementation process is both hindered and enabled. Currently the worldwide survival of the apparel industry is the main significant question. The most spoken about issue is for the sustainability of fashion in the world. Many organizations and fashion-conscious personalities have come forward to uphold the further extension of tomorrow 's good environment campaign, but the garments and textile industries in Bangladesh are far beyond this awareness, posing a risk of losing the world market. On the other hand, one of the key concepts for humanity and sustainability point of view is fashion for the moral or ethical issues. It is high time specific sustainability strategies and approaches were implemented. Improvements in social and environmental support migrant employees, help manufacturers establish longer-term partnerships with transnational companies and lead to production. The Bangladeshi garments industries are currently facing great challenges in terms of the working environment. Fire injuries are frequent in garments factories and the recent collapse of buildings poses a significant danger to their future.  In addition, the workers earn the world's lowest salaries which make them unsatisfied, sometimes causing clashes and violence during low-wage protests. This paper has looked at the work environment, fire and health problems facing Bangladesh's garments industry and proposes major steps to strengthen the environment and sustainability.
