Picture was taken by me when flying into the Dominican RepublicAbout a year or two ago I wrote about the dyeing clothing and, how the fashion industry is destroying clean water overseas. With our #ethicalmovement we can prevent more water from becoming undrinkable and keep #waterclean ! I am taking steps as an individual by buying mostly second hand clothing and, when I can afford it I will be buying ethical clothing as well. If we all take a stand against #fastfashion we will be heard by the fashion industry. We are greatly to blame for the landfills increasing and, the drinkable water decreasing because we demand fast fashion therefore the companies have to find quick and, cheap ways to get there clothing out to you. If the demand was drastically decreased then the fashion industry would have to predict what is in demand and follow through. If ethical fashion is great in demand then you shall receive ethical fashion. The fashion industry relies on trends, fads, and predictions to make their next collection but, if the trend is ethical fashion and, their fast fashion items won't sell they will stop making them. Although, some say it is about the creative process and, it may be, it is more about the dollars and cents. You can not create a collection that won't sell because your company will go out of business. We all spend a lot of money on sale items that mostly won't get worn and, we wonder why we do not have enough to spend on ethical fashion and, basic pieces that will last for years. My proposal is that we think before we buy and, avoid all malls to shop in. We should save up from the money we purchase on ten fast fashion items for one or two ethical pieces to add to our wardrobes. If we can get 10% of the world to invest in this type of buying the world and, water will be impacted a great deal. Let's be conscious of our decisions because they affect this beautiful world that we are living on. Tomorrow I will talk about capsule wardrobes and, how they can help us move to a better future. I will also, talk about how to avoid your clothing going into landfills and, make money to put toward your capsule wardrobe. I know we all aren't rolling in dough and we really need to think about our spending.
Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
