2018 – Time To Start Building A Sustainable Wardrobe

 

I’m back on my blog determined this year to make time to share my stories with you about ethical fashion and tips to build a sustainable wardrobe,  music and adventures.
I’m kicking off this year with my ethical style picks of the January sales. They’re in full swing and a little retail therapy during this miserable month is the perfect way to lift the January blues!
There are so many reasons to start shopping more responsibly this year but one of the main reasons you might not is the cost.  Ethical fashion costs more than some are willing to pay.
Here are a few reasons why:
The materials –  strict federal guidelines to be certified organic
Fair wages
Safe, healthy environments as opposed to sweatshops.
If you believe in these values and want to do your bit in saving and protecting our planet and make a stand against perilous working conditions and low wages then consider investing in pieces that will last longer.

“The biggest message is every time you buy something, always think, ‘Will I wear it a minimum of 30 times?’ If the answer is yes, then buy it. But you’d be surprised how many times you say no.” – Livia Firth
