Fast fashion is a hard habit to kick. After chatting with a girlfriend the other day, I vowed to myself that I wouldn’t buy any new clothes for a year (unless second hand or eco-made). On the weekend we stopped at TSC for a last minute Father’s Day gift... A $9 Fruit of the Loom basic sweatshirt on the sale rack was calling my name. 😳 I am happy to report, I ignored its call. 🙌🙌
Finding cute on-trend clothes for bargain prices used to be a thrill for me, but the more I learn about the industry, the more plastic garbage I see piling up globally, the less I want to be a part of that scene. It’s a hard habit to kick, but I am half way to kicking it completely! I encourage everyone give it a go too :) Let’s be conscious of what clothes we buy, let’s consume less, repair more and of course, choose used! 🧡

Water isn't just an element or a habitat, which are both important, but it is also a means of transport for goods in our global economy. MORE&MORE (invisible oceans) by Marina Zurkow explores the global exchange of goods across our oceans. This animation overlays cultural patterns of one of the 8 highest volume ports countries, India, along with international product classification codes and symbols of cultural identity, port life, transport modes and weather.

My husband substantially supported my decision about going sustainable 💚

Actually he had always been minimalist in his wardrobe and lifestyle choices. Now we both try to boycott fast fashion, avoid plastic-wrapped food, support local agriculture and shop small. We are even sharing the water bottle for this vacation because we forgot to bring his one )

It feels wonderful to share all the comforts and discomforts with him 💗

Anyone else stuck on a certain #colorcombo these days? I can’t get over army green and black 🖤🌿
.
Categorizing your life into color combos is a great way to establish a wardrobe that can be built on top of without having to commit yourself to one brand or one style. I’ve found that if I stick to a strict palette in my wardrobe, I’m more likely to create unique outfit combinations I hadn’t thought of before ⚡️

People will remember the kind of person you were and the memories they had. Accumulating lots of material items to “impress” others doesn’t exist. Capitalism tries to tell everyone that, but it is possible to break free from the cycle! (Little by little helps) ——————————————————

Did you see the news yesterday? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I only found out about this late last night & wanted to make sure that I had read & understood it properly before posting today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Back in Feb I posted about the House of Commons' Environmental Audit Committee releasing their report on "Fixing Fast Fashion". The report outlined the negative impact of fashion on both the people & the planet & made recommendations to improve it's sustainability. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yesterday it was reported that all 18 of these recommendations (which you can find on Parliament's website,) were rejected by Government.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Really disheartening to hear, considering the same Government declared a climate emergency just a couple of weeks ago. Fashion isn't solely to blame for climate change, but it does play quite a big part & needs to be one of the areas transformed in order to meet the UK's goal of net zero emissions by 2050. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what now? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I guess it's down to us consumers to keep pushing for change, asking questions, supporting smaller, sustainable brands & looking after the clothes we own. Buying less & buying better. Buying things that you absolutely love & will want to wear many times. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They say knowledge is power. I know from my own experience, that I am making a more sustainable product because of what I have learnt about the impact of fashion. 99% of which I did not know before I started this journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you heard about the announcement? What were your thoughts on it? B x⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

𝚎𝙱𝚊𝚢 𝚢𝚘𝚞 𝚑𝚊𝚍 𝚖𝚎 𝚊𝚝 𝚑𝚎𝚕𝚕𝚘 🎙
.
So I did a order online yesterday.
I knew I shouldn't of as I really don't need another pair.  Can you guess what? 
I just couldn't let these go. The price was great and justified to my self that it is just what I need. 
Every time I shall wear them I will imagine they were £5 and I shall have my money worth back in no time.
@ebay_uk is full of so many treasures you just have to have the patience to look.
Also, I didn't realise that I forgot to change the postage address so I got caught by my mum.
Happy Wednesday.

Absolutely agree with @slowfashionmemes. What on Earth are people thinking?! @missguided are selling a bikini that Costs £1. They say they’re Empowering women? Not the women who made them I bet! We cannot go on buying like it doesn’t affect the garment workers or the environment. Enough is enough!

Yesterday, the UK government rejected ALL the recommendations made by the UK Environmental Audit Committee’s Fixing Fashion report to clean up the massive environmental impact of fast fashion. The report was published in February this year and called on the government to help address the sustainability of the UK Fashion industry through tangible and government backed measures. It showed that the UK shopper buys more new clothes than any of its European counterpart, and that ‘the way we make, use and throw away our clothes is unsustainable (..) and contributes more to climate change than international aviation and shipping combined’. Yet, the government failed to implement any binding recommendations made by the Committee….shocking outcome

_________________________________________
Here I am, wearing old clothes 💃🏼 Although this may not seem like a big deal to many people, the truth is I used to be addicted to buying new clothes for every event, to make sure I felt as happy and as confident as possible. My NY resolution was to not buy any new clothes in 2019. I mainly set myself this resolution as I became more aware of how fashion is one of the biggest polluters to the environment, and I learnt about the cruel conditions of the people who make our clothes (largely women and children). I expected it to be hard. What I didn't expect was a complete transformation in mindset. I now can't actually believe that I used to buy so many new clothes, many of which conformed to fast fashion, and so unnecessarily. I am loving just wearing my wardrobe! 🤷🏼‍♀️ I have realised that I dont need new clothes to feel happy and confident, that has to come from within! 🧡 I know not many people will read this but if I can just reach one person who is thinking about making some changes to the way they shop fashion, then I'll be happy 💁🏼‍♀️ Honestly, if I can do it then anyone can! Thank you to @venetiafalconer for her amazing eco activism and for inspiring this lifestyle change! #fastfashiondetox #fastfashiontakedown #fastfashionsucks #environment #planet #ecofriendly #smallchanges #impact #earth #nonewclothes #oldclothes #oldclothesrock #oootd #oldoutfit #reuse #recycle #rewear #borrowclothes #swapclothes #wedding
