What’s your stance on “fast fashion”? 👗 I’ve become much more aware of how much I consume and purchase since I’ve been living out of a suitcase for the last year. When you don’t have a lot of space to put your things, you just tend not to buy it. I used to buy lots (LOTS!) of clothes, some of which I’m ashamed to say are still sitting in my closet with its tags still on.
I learned that textile waste is one of the earth’s greatest polluters, next to oil! And the workers that make the clothes are often working in horrible conditions. I’ve been making a conscious effort to buy less, and when I do buy, it’s high-quality, ethically made stuff.
No one is perfect, and no one is expecting you to change overnight. But even if you decide just once this month to hold off on buying that $20 shirt, it’s a step in the right direction. 💕
