When you purchase from a fast-fashion company, you are supporting illicit practices in other countries (whether that is forced labor, impractical working conditions, or textile waste) . So just be conscious of the next thing you buy and know that you don’t necessarily have to have it in that second. When you decide to overrule your impulse, you understand that you can take control of your life and help the lives of others. "
"That sustainable fashion will always be a controversial topic, and you don’t have to stress about going completely zero waste and organic from one day to another. You can start living a more sustainable lifestyle little by little, by switching to ethical brands if your budget allows, or by shopping secondhand or shopping with a capsule wardrobe mindset.
"Do you care about the environment, people’s wellbeing, safety stands? Then shop ethically, and sustainably, and you’ll feel better for it, and you’ll be hooked. We shouldn’t be wearing fashion at the cost of people’s lives. We need to look at the big picture and not just what’s hanging in our wardrobes."
