We were so happy to be shared in @10degreesofchange ‘s post on sustainable fashion ❤️
. Today’s #10degreesofchange is recognizing this wellness journey is not singular it is not secluding it’s connecting, it takes us from just ourselves to the world around us. One of the ways it connects us is the ground we all stand on, the air we breath, the water 💦 we need to live.. mamma earth 🌍 🌏 🌎
There are many ways that can help change our own impact effecting the future health of Creation.
I remember how shocked I was to find out the fast fashion industry is the second highest water polluter next to the agricultural industry & creates 4% of the worlds waste each year.
Fact: did you know the jeans your wearing took 1,800 gallons of water to make. This fact is similar for shirts, skirts, leggings.... Fact: Studies show 60 percent of clothes are made from synthetic materials (e.g. polyester, nylon, acrylic) a.k.a. plastic. Americans throw away over 10.5 billion tons clothing a year! They then sit in landfills & slowly breakdown to contaminate water & the land. ☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽☝🏽 I acknowledge that buying second hand or “thrifted” does not fix the problem (policy change does this) but we can change things if we all lessened how we buy. Because companies change practices to follow demand. If you can afford buy from sustainable, organic , non synthetic & recycled materials like @girlfriend @common .assembly @noonday _jennav @honuaskincare @patagonia @nativeworkscsc
Another option that lesses the amount in landfills, leaching into the land is to buy second hand & my friend @fancypantsthrift makes it easy for you by posting great finds . I’ll be contributing more of my finds as well.
Buy for a Christmas present, birthday or yourself. Changing how I buy is my change this season.
