I believe sustainability in fashion is one of the most important things on our agenda. The fashion industry is the second most polluting on earth, only second to the oil industry. Let that sink in.
This is why fashion should ever be thought of as disposable products. You should buy something because you love it and you’ll wear it forever and because you’re supporting the workers, farmers and ecosystems that went into its making.
You are the choices you make and the fashion industry is nothing without you, the customer. Don’t just buy something because if you do you’ll get another one 75% off. Think about what you’re supporting. Would you still support it if you knew that local communities where the clothes were made are so badly affected by the chemicals that countless children have mental disabilities, cancer, skin diseases and many more? Would you support the money hungry corporations forcing their workers to continue working in buildings that they knew were unsafe, and eventually collapsed, killing thousands? Would you like to add to the enormous laundry heap of clothing that sits in landfill for over 200 years, releasing deadly toxins into the air?
No. Of course not. No human in their right mind would willingly do such atrocious things. It’s the lack of EDUCATION that is killing our planet. Talk to people about this, start conversations and look at how you can better yourself. Because like the butterfly effect your actions, or lack thereof, will create our future.
