Since reading Lucy Siegle’s book ‘To Die For’, I’ve promised myself not to buy from unethical/fast fashion shops, and instead to focus on buying second hand, ethical, or particularly well made ‘investment’ clothes, and it’s going well so far minus the odd slip up.
It’s really hard trying to be an ‘ethical’ blogger: everything you buy is scrutinised, and you feel super guilty if you are a hypocrite. My view is that you have to start somewhere. I’m not going to be perfect, but I hope to spread the word a little bit without being preachy.
The fast fashion industry is a crazy crazy thing and it’s damaging the world more than we realise, not to mention the huge injustices suffered by the people who make the clothes and pick the cotton. It doesn’t need to be this way! If you’re interested in finding out more, please please read To Die For or Overdressed.
