Sustainable fashion is a topic that has been preoccupying me more and more in recent years. Granted- the way we impact our planet in general is a subject I’m passionate about, thanks to my parents.
But since fashion is also my passion, I wanted to make more of an effort towards bridging the gap between the two. Because I truly believe we can all make a positive impact when it comes to making our fashion consumption habits more sustainable.
My first actions?
- Doubling down on habits for slowing down fast fashion consumption.
- Commiting to shopping less, and knowing more about the companies I’m buying from.
- And researching the true environmental impact of fashion.
I figured you can’t really support a cause before correctly understanding it, right? And with all the tricky lingo and more-or-less accurate statistics that surround the concept of sustainability, it’s easy to get confused.
After all, what’s really “green”, “ethical”, “conscious”, “organic”, “fast & slow fashion”? And can you really trust a label? Or better said- can you interpret it correctly?
