Vintage But With a Purpose!
Avoiding fast fashion is a tricky one, especially if you don’t have a lot to spend. Everybody has to go to Penneys to buy socks at some point because that extra fiver they are saving will add to the food budget. But as consuming fast fashion becomes a lot less about budgeting and a lot more about indulgence and FOMO more it becomes a problem. A very fast problem.
Thrifting is a lot easier than it seems and a lot more fun too! I honestly hope Thrift shops become just as tech and marketing savvy as fast fashion. It is an easy way to find clothes you will love. But without contributing to the negative environmental impact, water pollution, toxic chemicals and the increasing levels of textile waste. I know it can be hard to think of that with so much going on around us. But we don’t have to be drastic, to cure it or abolish it. Fast fashion does not need to just stop and disappear. It just needs to slow down, and so do we. H&M
