Sometimes your greatest reward is the next generation. Kudos all three Hamilton kids:). Not a day goes I don’t wonder how my ex and I have done it. These stupid bangs btw are from #otp.

If you're in need of a bath, here is another Miakoda product that's a collaboration with Singapore-based Matter. These robes are naturally dyed by artisans in India. The dye comes from the madder plant. Some of the benefits of using natural dyes include: Better for the environment: They're biodegradable and discarding them doesn't cause pollution. They are also made with renewable resources. Safe: Because they are natural, they typically do not cause harm when ingested or when in contact with skin. Do you own anything that's natural dyed? . . . . . . #organic #organicfarming #organiccotton #sustainable #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #sustainablestyle #sustainablebrand #sustainablelifestyle #clothesarenttrash #lovedclotheslast #ethicalfashion #ethical #ethicallymade #ethicalclothing #ethicalshopping #ethicalstyle #ethicalbrand #ethicalliving #eco #ecofriendly #ecobrands #green #greenlife #ecofriendlyliving #ecofriendlyproducts #ecofriendlyfashion #ecofriendlyproduct #healthyoceans #healthyocean

A beautiful pair of culottes for those who want a relaxed look. Women who are working to be free from human trafficking make the clothes at Sudara. Sudara is a non-profit and donations you make at checkout, go to the Sudara Freedom Fund. The Sudara Freedom Fund helps to fund housing for women rescued from Sex Trafficking. Human trafficking is the act of stealing someone's freedom, whether forcibly or through manipulation, for your own use. Most people trafficked are done so for labor or sex. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), forced labor trafficking (the kind prevalent in the fashion industry) is estimated to be a $150 billion industry globally. The ILO also estimates that there about 40.3 million victims of human trafficking worldwide. 81% of them are trapped in forced labor. 25% of them are children. 75% are women and girls. We're grateful for brands like Sudara who do their part to solve the problem. When you shop sustainably you help put an end to labor trafficking. . . . . #fairtrade #fairtradefashion #fairtradeclothing #shopfairtrade #fairtradedifference #clothesarenttrash #lovedclotheslast #ethicalfashion #ethical #ethicallymade #ethicalclothing #ethicalshopping #ethicalstyle #ethicalbrand #ethicalliving #humantrafficking #culotte #culottes #consciousliving

These bags are made from 100% traceable leather. Traceability is the ability to know and understand where each of the items used to make your products come from. When it comes to leather, there are governing bodies such as the Leather Working Group (LWG). LWG challenges many global brands to review their supply chain policies concerning deforestation. So a brand such as @central_grazing_company making their bags with traceable leather is very positive! . . . . . . . #handcrafted #traceable #madeinamerica #supplychain #sustainable #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #sustainablestyle #sustainablebrand #sustainablelifestyle #clothesarenttrash #lovedclotheslast #ethicalfashion #ethical #ethicalclothing #ethicalshopping #ethicalstyle #ethicalbrand #ethicalliving #eco #ecofriendly #ecobrands #fairtrade #fairtradeclothing #artisans #ecofriendlyliving #ecofriendlyproducts #ecofriendlyfashion #ecofriendlyproduct #handbag

There is just something about yellow! Here we are with another block printed wrap dress by @symbologyclothing . All of their clothing is handmade by women in India who use traditional art techniques and eco-friendly dyes. Block printing is a technique for reproducing images carved into wood onto fabric and paper. The technique has been around for over 2000 years, and it is thought to have originated in China. The there it spread to India and then hundreds of years later, spread to Europe and other parts of the world. Today, blocking printing is still prevalent in Asia and can be an eco-friendly alternative to current fabric printing methods if eco-dyes are used. . . . . . . . #handprint #handmade #blockprint #sustainable #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #sustainablestyle #sustainablebrand #sustainablelifestyle #clothesarenttrash #lovedclotheslast #ethicalfashion #ethical #ethicalclothing #ethicalshopping #ethicalstyle #ethicalbrand #ethicalliving #eco #ecofriendly #ecobrands #fairtrade #fairtradeclothing #artisans #india #ecofriendlyliving #ecofriendlyproducts #ecofriendlyfashion #ecofriendlyproduct #ecodye

Hi I’m Efua and I’m the founder of Thread Life. I should have posted a picture where I look like a normal human but what’s normal?! 😂 It’s a bit nerve wracking putting myself out there like this, but for sustainability, I will. 😊. But.... if you want to know what I look like semi-normally, or to find out more about who I am when I’m not doing this modeling thing, you can visit our about page or ask questions in the comment section. Anyways, in this picture, I’m modeling my friend’s @atlantacelia sustainable fashion line. I chose it to show how passionate I am about sustainability. We may dot a few of these types of pics throughout this feed. We’ll see how brave I am. Either way, I started on this sustainability journey a few years ago and it seems like not much has changed. There are definitely more players, but when it comes to change, it seems few and far between. That got me wondering. Almost everyone I meet agrees sustainability is necessary but hardly any of these people actually shop sustainably. Totally not judging at all because I get it. Finding sustainable fashion we like is a bit too cumbersome. I really think that if it were easier more people would do it. But I don’t know for sure. That’s why we’re running a startup investigation to find out. To test it, we want to be a sustainable stylist of sorts. If you have a fashion need, we’ll help you find it. The thing is, all our finds will be sustainable. It doesn’t stop you from doing what you normally do to look for fashion but it provides you with the sustainable alternative if it exists. I don’t know, I think if we can help a lot of people find what they’re looking for eventually they’ll become more acquainted with sustainable brands and eventually reach for them first. What do you think? Think this is a crazy idea? I guess we won’t know for sure unless we try. . . . #fairtrade #fairtradefashion #shopfairtrade #sustainable #sustainablefashion #clothesarenttrash #lovedclotheslast #ethicalfashion #wednesdaywisdom #womeninbusiness #womenintech #womenentrepreneurs #choose #choosewell #reducewaste #handmade #ecofriendly #fairtradeclothing #ethical #ethicallymade #ethicalclothing #eco #ecofriendly

Love Letter, circa 1995. I still remember buying this t-shirt. I wasn’t old enough to drive yet, so I was at the mall with my Dad. I remember the trepidation on his face, as mine was filled with excitement at the idea of dressing like a teenager. I was a freshman at the local public high school after 9 years in Catholic school. The summer before high school started, I had shed my clunky glasses and had grown nearly 2 inches taller. I think a lot about our relationship to clothing, especially with the advance of fast fashion and seeing items discarded nearly as quickly as they were purchased. I’ve worked in the fashion industry for 10 years now, and I think a lot about my own relationship to clothing and how some of my earliest memories are about fashion. I think it’s important to have a conversation about wearing the things we love. Wearing the hell out of them, and then wearing them some more. There is such beauty in how we feel in our favorite items of clothing. And the pieces that we take along for the long haul become a part of our memories too. #lovedclotheslast #wearitagain #fashionrevolution #slowfashion #clothesarenttrash #fashrev #1995 #loveletter

Happy Monday! Here with another great brand. Hackwith Design House is another brand whose mission is to make long-lasting clothing. They're committed to minimizing waste and so starting in September of 2013, they've only released limited editions of each design every week. In fact, many of their designs are made only after they are ordered. Very exciting to see more brands consider their waste footprint. . . . . . . . #sustainable #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #sustainablestyle #sustainablebrand #sustainablelifestyle #clothesarenttrash #lovedclotheslast #zerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastetips #zerowastejourney #zerowasteliving #mondaymotivation #mondaymood #mondayvibes #mondays #happymonday #mondaycheer #mondaycheers #mondaycheerup #madeinamerica #reducewaste #reduceyourwaste

One of the biggest steps you can take for the climate + your health as a consumer is to shop resale. @helpsy is taking it one step further. You know those event shirts you wear once and then toss? Well they can be recycled and used again for another event. And if you don’t need 100 shirts for an event - please buy resale. We can change the construct of the #fashionindustry just by the way we shop. #resalenotretail #Repost @helpsy with @get_repost ・・・ ANNOUNCEMENT 📣 Don’t you think it’s awful how companies, sports teams, marathons, charities, and even environmental slogan tees are printed on brand new shirts to be worn once then tossed? We do! ‘Mostly Harmless’ is HELPSY’s new line of blank t’s that we are making available for bulk orders, 100+. They are the next best thing to totally non-existent impact on the planet, hardly harmless, Mostly Harmless.

Hey, this is Ellie! 👋🏽 She has an artistic, design-led background with loads of experience providing great customer journeys. Her approach to design is very organic (swipe for much beauty 👉🏽!) and through her previous businesses (entrepreneur lyf 🤟🏽) within the art industry, she has often worked on environmentally focused projects to support the causes of charities such as @thewildlifetrusts and @savebutterflyworld. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After working in the fashion retail industry in London for several years, she became very aware of how unethical and damaging the fashion industry is on our planet and has taken the leap to join the program to make a difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like Jordan, she wanted to swap the city for the countryside and the beach — who wouldn’t?! 👀 Ellie also loves a good festival like the rest of us on the team so we’ve got some planned for this summer ‘cause team bonding and all that! 🎉 🥳 🍻 🎶 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I recently found a pair of jeans in a bin down in my yard. At first glance, they seemed in pristine condition, so I took them upstairs in my apartment to try them on. Great fit! A tiny bit large, but I’m honestly a little tired of wearing jeans that give my organs claustrophobia. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ After wearing them for three days straight (am I the only one that develops quick feelings for new clothes and then wear them too much, not unlike dating in your teens?), I noticed that they had in fact been worn to the brink of holes – right between the thighs. Unfortunate for me, although I did send a mental high-five to their previous owner for at least wearing them out! As I was already deeply in invested in this new relationship, I was not about to give up on my new favorite pair of pants. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So what do you do when your jeans get a hole? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ YOU FIX ‘EM.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This was my first ever attempt and as you can see I’m not completely done. While I’ve always been fixing little holes and tears in my clothes, I’ve never been creative about it and I cannot wait to start using this method for keeping my clothes alive and well for longer. ⁣⁣ Yay for me and yay for the 🌎⁣⁣ ⁣ Also, if this mending-whilst-saving-the-planet is your jam (of course it is!), there are some seriously talented people out there and they put my first little attempt here to shame. I’ve tagged them in the photo, so go check out their ART.⁣ ⁣ Link to my post on fixing clothes in the bio.⁣ ⁣⁣ #mending #makedoandmend #slowstitching #repurposed #clothesarenttrash #repair #clothingrepair #sustainablefashion

WHAT’S @fash_rev WEEK? CONT. from yesterday.....The problems in the fashion industry are overwhelming and not going to change overnight. But what can we do as consumers about our clothing purchases? We are not going to stop buying them, nor should we (it’s a huge global economic industry)! We can, however, buy less (be mindful about whether you need it or not), choose well (give your money to brands/shops that are open and transparent) and make your clothing last (love your clothes, give them value, repair/mend and rewear). We could change the system to one that cares about every person in the supply chain and doesn’t waste the earth’s resources.TBC tomorrow. . WHY it matters? With all the problems the world has that seem sooooo much bigger than us, that we feel we can do nothing about, this is something we can. We all wear clothing, you can make a difference with your voice, wallet and choices. . #fashionrevoultion #whomademyclothes #lovedclotheslast #clothesarenttrash #consumemindfully #yourchoicesmatter #thinkbeforeyoupurchase #garmentworkerrights #enviornmentalrights

🙌🏽 It’s #FashionRevolutionWeek , and I’m really CURIOUS about how my clothes are produced, distributed, sold, consumed, and recovered. This includes the treatment and working conditions of those making the clothes (majority of them women and children), and impact on our environment (fashion is a major polluter and burns a lot of forests), the ghg emissions from all stages, the micro and nano plastic from synthetic fibres and chemical dye pollution (which ends up in our bodies), the brand policies that limit clothing recovery (like burning unsold items), the impact sending unwanted clothing to far-away places has (like harming the local clothing economy in Africa), the psychological messaging from brands and media for us to hyper-consume (fuelling stress, anxiety, and addiction to consumption), the major contribution to the excelleration of climate change fashion brands are having, the differences in political will, policy and mindset in North America versus Europe, and the cumulative effect this all has on our #ecohealthexistence 🌍 . So, today I’m showing my label, and asking the brand @getplenty #WhoMadeMyClothes 👗 Get curious with me and flip your clothes inside out and ask some questions! .

DAY 4. #RVA7for7 Style Challenge in honor of @fash_rev week @ethicalstyleco My 7 pieces for 7 days - [ ] Gray dress - [ ] Burnt orange dress - [X] Navy pants - [ ] Gray cardigan - [X] Navy shirt - [ ] Denim shirt - [ ] Checkered shirt @hm @motherhoodmaternity #whomademyclothes #lovedclotheslast #clothesarenttrash . WHAT’S @fash_rev WEEK? CONT. from yesterday.....This week I have been checking my garment tags, seeing where my clothes were made, tagging the brands on my social media and asking them #whomademyclothes and I hope you are doing the same!!! TBC tomorrow. . WHY it matters? Watching @truecostmovie makes it so apparent the the clothes we wear are made by people of color in the east, people that look like me, and consumed by people of all colors in the west (majority white). Most desi people I know here in the U.S. don’t care about their consumption, and actually consume a lot. It makes me angry that they have so much pride in the culture (from the east), but can turn a blind eye to the social and environmental injustice in the fashion industry (in the west) that they directly are a part of with where and how they spend their money. 🤬 @aditimayer does a great job of leading the conversation around sustainable fashion’s race issues.

DAY 3. #RVA7for7 Style Challenge in honor of @fash_rev week @ethicalstyleco My 7 pieces for 7 days - [X] Gray dress - [ ] Burnt orange dress - [ ] Navy pants - [ ] Gray cardigan - [ ] Navy shirt - [ ] Denim shirt - [ ] Checkered shirt @loft #whomademyclothes . WHAT’S @fash_rev WEEK? CONT. from yesterday.....It’s not about boycotting the brands you love, it’s about telling them you love their style, but want to know more about who made your clothes. You want to know that they’re being treated fairly, have the freedom to speak out, and are paid enough to live with dignity, opportunity, comfort and hope. You want to wear clothes that make you feel good, but only if the story behind them is filled with dignity and respect. TBC tomorrow. . WHY it matters? Because YOU are in charge. You buy the clothes that brands sell, if you stop buying, if you demand change, those brands have to listen or they do not get your money. Use your voice, if each consumer became an activist, imagine the impact. 📣 . #fashionrevoultion #whomademyclothes #lovedclotheslast #clothesarenttrash #consumemindfully #yourchoicesmatter #thinkbeforeyoupurchase

#BinLoveNotes : a new series. We will share with you real positive feedback we get from kind people commending our extraordinarily dedicated Operations Team for bending over backwards to service our bins and the people who use them; even if it means retrieving a cell phone accidentally tossed in the bin. We can’t always do this but we try our hardest. The nearly 70 people who service our bins, and their management, work tirelessly and it shows! 25MM lbs a year of clothes collection is a TOUGH job and they do it kindly. 🖤 #clothesarenttrash

It's Fashion Revolution Week. A week that occurs every year to mark the anniversary of the tragic Rana Plaza incident on April 24th, 2012. It's a week where we can remember to ask #whomademyclothes ? At Thread Life, sustainability is about stewarding the planet and the people who live in it. We know that fashion has played a huge role is violating this. But we can do better. We're moving towards change and we're glad you're along for the ride. . . . . . . . #fashionrevolutionweek2019 #fashionrevolutionweek #fashionrevolution #fashionrevolutionweek2019 #sustainable #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #sustainablestyle #sustainablebrand #sustainablelifestyle #clothesarenttrash #lovedclotheslast #ethicalfashion #ethical #ethicallymade #ethicalclothing #ethicalshopping #ethicalstyle #ethicalbrand #ethicalliving #eco #ecofriendly #ecobrands #green #greenlife #ecofriendlyliving #ecofriendlyproducts #ecofriendlyfashion #ecofriendlyproduct

DAY 2. #RVA7for7 Style Challenge in honor of @fash_rev week @ethicalstyleco My 7 pieces for 7 days - [ ] Gray dress - [X] Burnt orange dress - [ ] Navy pants - [ ] Gray cardigan - [ ] Navy shirt - [X] Denim shirt - [ ] Checkered shirt @bananarepublic @loft #whomademyclothes . WHAT’S @fash_rev WEEK? CONT. from yesterday.....Fashion Revolution is calling for a fairer, cleaner, safer, more transparent fashion industry, it’s about knowing who makes your clothes, what their lives are like and how much they get paid. There are about 75 million people who work in the garment industry, 80% are women between the ages 18-35. Majority of them live in poverty, unable to afford life’s basic necessities. subject to exploitation; verbal and physical abuse, working in unsafe and dirty conditions, with very little pay. TBC tomorrow. . WHY it matters? We should love the pieces of clothing in our wardrobes, we should hold value to them, only then will we respect the journey they took to get to us and not treat them as disposable. If we did, we’d buy better, buy less and take care of them. No more buying for the deal, never wearing, forgetting you even have it, it’s torn so toss, and bags and bags for donation. . #fashionrevoultion #whomademyclothes #lovedclotheslast #clothesarenttrash #consumemindfully #yourchoicesmatter #thinkbeforeyoupurchase
