Doing Good While Shopping
This day and age consumerism comes with a lot of guilt. There’s always something we can be doing better, always someone shouting about how we need to be doing more. But there are ways that you can easily do good and feel good at the same time. Shop recycled clothes! The garment industry makes up 6.7% of the global climate impact and clothing and textiles are the number one source of primary micro plastics into the ocean. It’s easy to shop secondhand clothes and know that you’re truly doing something helpful and good for the environment. Celebrate that! Maybe challenge yourself to go 30 days without buying any new clothing, jewelry, or purses. Overall clothing consumption is projected to double by 2030, but who says that we can’t change that? We definitely can. Let’s shop small, shop secondhand, and be a part of the Fashion Revolution!
