Circular fashion… what is it? It’s the idea that nothing ever goes away. Most of us grew up thinking that once something is thrown away, it’s gone. At a birthday party recently, a mom stopped some children from letting balloons float off into the sky, citing how bad that is for the environment. Another mom piped up and (very gently) said, “as opposed to popping the balloons and throwing them into the trash?” Touché, environmentally conscious mama, touché. This awareness is the idea behind circular fashion. Every purchase we make winds up somewhere, even the packaging it arrives in. So yes, shopping a second-hand website is one way to make a positive change in shopping habits, but going to your local consignment store will eliminate all of that plastic and cardboard packaging involved. Even better!
