Fashion Revolution Week
Obviously there’s no magic wand that will fix all woes, overnight. But intentional, mindful actions can make change happen every day!
It’s easier than ever to buy new, cheap clothing. But the reality is that the garment industry still has one of the worst reputations when it comes to the treatment of the people working in it, as well as its overall effect on the environment. YOU can change that.
5 Garments = 5 Looks x 5 Days
Could it be that easy to change the world?
Instead of buying something new when you need a wardrobe update, challenge yourself to take another look in your closet.
