Needless to say, we identify with how we dress up to face the world each day. Its little things reflect the state of mind and help that 2 percent which takes on the ripple effect throughout the day. Understanding more about what it takes to manufacture the clothes that we buy and cloak on as a statement of who we are, what we represent and in turn, who we turn up us, is a ritual we take for granted every morning.
Fast fashion is the 2nd biggest polluter in the world today. Though the pandemic has slowed it down these past two years, only education and practical acceptance in the choices we take, is going to make any difference in this industry moving forward. Sustainable fashion is about the production line, choice materials, recycling fibers and ethical processes all playing a part in keeping the fashion industry a sustainable one. It’s not perfect but it’s getting better.
On the consumer end, though the draw to buy them cheap is real. It is our responsibility to question where and how this came to your doorstep. If the price is too good to be true, it probably is, someone would have had to suffer along the way of its production line to keep the price so low and unbelievable. There are many considerations in understanding this conundrum, it’s not hard to outtake our considered effort to want to be part of this solution and change. Everyone takes a moment to decide what to wear each day. If everyone uses that moment to consider standing up for sustainable fashion practices, we are doing so much in our own capacity to help in the larger scale of climate change, water pollution and on a more personal note, creating our own empowering mindset just knowing you’re adorning the clothes which represent the issues your stand up for.
