Hi M - Squad!
It's Maya Glitters and today's post is all about sustainable fashion (eco - friendly fashion)!
1. Sustainably Optimistic Blog
If you aren't 100% sure how to actually help the environment, a really great resource is The "Sustainably Optimistic" blog. Founded by 14 year old Anne, she wants to educate other people (showing them that by incorporating a little bit of sustainability in their lives, they can make a difference). Check out Anne's blog here for more info!
2. Garment Streak Clothing
Garment Streak is a company selling slow - fashion clothing. This means that their outfits are not to be used once. Instead they are to be use multiple times (which helps the environment). Their t - shirts are over sized which also means they can be used multiple times. Fast fashion (wearing garments only once/a couple of times) contributes towards green house emissions which are also terrible for the environment. The reason for this is because of large factories/manufacturers. RE - USE!
At Mini Mode Fashion Show I actually modelled for them!
Did you notice how I wore a Tesco bag rucksack (Re - use)!
Here are a couple of pictures!
THE GARMENT STREAK MANIFESTO
THE ROLE OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS TO INSPIRE US HOW TO DRESS FOR THE TIMES WE ARE IN
BUT HOW CAN THEY DO THAT IF THEY CANNOT EVEN DISCERN THE TIMES WE ARE IN?
THE TIMES ARE CLIMATE EMERGENCY
THE OCCASION IS CLIMATE EMERGENCY
DRESS FOR THE OCCASION
THE DRESS CODE IS SLOW FASHION
FAST FASHION IS OUT OF THE CODE
THE GOOD THING ABOUT A SLOW WARDROBE IS THAT YOU ALREADY OWN IT
SLOW WARDROBES ARE THE ONLY GARB FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO NOT BE EXTINCT
Thank you for reading! I hope you found this inspiring and will take action staying sustainable, carefully think about your fashion choices. Also, be sure to check out Sustainably Optimistic blog!
