Drunk on consumerism, fast fashion, and faster purchases are the key drivers of massive pollution, exploitation, and unsustainability in the fashion industry.
Sales that encourage mass consumption is clashing with the planet’s resources. The earth’s soils are depleted of nutrients. Working families are grossly underpaid. Humans (including children) who grow and process the materials work 14+ hour days for less than the cost of a latte.
The clothes you’re wearing are infused with molecular-size toxins and carcinogens like glyphosate and other pesticides that can’t be washed out. Skins, furs, feathers are stolen property.
When you pledge to make purchases that are kind to the earth, you are bettering the world, yourself, and initiating a new way of being for those around you.
