Let's be Sustainable Shoppers in 2019, K?

If we’ve learned anything in 2018, it’s that choosing paper over plastic isn’t going to cut it anymore. Climate change is real, and she is angry.

The fashion industry is a massive contributor to global warming, from toxic pollution released through manufacturing to the simple waste factor of fast fashion. Fast fashion giants like Forever 21, H&M, and Zara may be cheap, but with lower cost comes lower quality and higher environmental damage.

Becoming a conscious consumer is one of the simplest ways to reduce your carbon footprint. Sustainable fashion carries a stigma of being pricey, but wouldn’t you rather spend a little more on something that 1) is NOT accelerating the decay of our planet 2) will last years longer than those Urban Outfitters impulse-buys that fall apart in two seasons?
