Feature Interview: Gi

"It goes beyond just fashion. It’s tied to so many other industries and issues—the environment, human rights, equality, representation, etc. Additionally, ethical/sustainable fashion is a spectrum and I think it’s important adapt a system that works sustainably for your lifestyle. There’s no right answer. Do your research."

Feature Interview: Tamar

I have always had a deep love for animals and the planet. We as human animals often see the fact that we have a higher intellect as a reason to decide the faith of the animals we consume, use, and test on. I see this intellect as a responsibility we have to keep this planet as green and as happy as possible and to harm no animals, human or otherwise, in the process. Thrifting gives me the power to not contribute to the horrible practice that is fast fashion.

Changing Our Mindsets

I'm starting to explore small ethical businesswoman that I feel comfortable supporting because I think supporting those who are doing it right is just as, if not more important, than "boycotting" fast fashion brands. I'm focusing on my mindsets that are potentially misguided and hoping to learn from others in this ethical community because I know that valuing those right in front of me also in this movement is just as important as trying to advocate for people I may likely never meet.
