When I walk past fast fashion stores, a wave of anxiety and anger rises inside of me.
But I’ve been thinking this week, is boycotting fast fashion really the answer?
If all seven billion of us decided to boycott fast fashion today, thousands would be jobless, (800,000 in Cambodia alone), economies would plummet, and small ethical fashion businesses wouldn’t be able to keep up with the demand.
I don’t have all the answers, but I think rather than boycotting, we need to work WITH the fast fashion companies to change their ways and their systems, rather than fighting against them until they don’t exist anymore.
What do you think?
