WEEK 6 CHALLENGE - BREAK UP FAST FASHION

WEEK 6 CHALLENGE - BREAK UP FAST FASHION

Hi everyone,


It's a bit late for this week challenge after an exciting week and busy vendor fair's weekend. Let's wrap up the week by this challenge: break up fast fashion.

Why?

Do you know that the fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world? I found this very well-informed article from Sustain Your Syle about the environmental impacts of the fashion industry that I would like to share here if you wanna read more about the problem:

Solution?

Well, for our family, the solution is Thrifting. We've been thrifting since we first came to the country simply because it was good for our wallet at that time, but soon it has become a lifestyle that we see so many benefits and just can't justify paying more money for brand new clothing (with a few exceptions) and create more waste at the same time.

Buying second hand keeps unwanted clothing out of landfills and extends the life of perfectly usable items. It not only reduces waste and pollution but also frees up money for other things.  

How's about you?

What are some reasons that you don't buy second hand clothes?
