let’s talk fashion: specifically sustainable and ethical fashion. did you know the average person throws away 70 pounds of clothes per year? or that the fashion industry as a whole is one of the leading pollution agencies in the world? what about that over 50% of the fashion industry isn’t even paid minimum wage and that the people making our clothes are in horrible working conditions?
ways to combat that is buying from ethical & sustainable brands or thrifting your clothes! this outfit is 100% sustainable & ethical, but even better, the top and skirt were thrifted for $5 each! shopping ethically & sustainably doesn’t have to be expensive, so instead of shopping at forever 21 or h&m head to the thrift store to find that perfect skirt that makes your ass pop ✨
👗 Clothes swaps can be a bit hectic and it's a case of everyone for themselves - but I managed to score this cute dress and smart jacket at one. 💁 . 🔧 The boots were recently repaired to extend their life too. I can't express how much I despise shoe shopping so I will wear shoes till they literally fall apart. . ❓Do you prefer op shops or clothes swaps, and why? I prefer op shops because I can take my time.

#Repost@shopmillyt with @get_repost ・・・ "What's in that shop?" my daughter asked, full of curiosity, as we passed our local Vinnie's. 🌈 ... Neck ties, knitting needles, glass serving ware... DVDs, business shirts, a lone teddy bear... We liberated a denim peasant skirt, in excellent condition, for my daughter and a bag perfect for safely carrying my jars to and from the bulk foods store.
Yes I'm trying to reduce my purchasing, but rather than putting myself on a complete spending ban I'm focusing over being more mindful of what I purchase. I'm very grateful to thank you Anika Vandyke @rocket_science for suggesting a straw basket for bulk food shopping in her fab book "A Zero Waste Life in Thirty Days". Last time I was at @nakedfoods I packed my bottles into a string bag and it was risky business! 😱
