A few nights ago we watched The True Cost on Netflix and our hearts broke. Not that we were oblivious of the situation in the fashion industry and not that sustainable fashion hasn’t been in trend for the past couple of years. Somehow my mind wasn’t ready for a change and only right after i became a mom the whole everything really struck me into wanting to do better.
I’ve read a lot about sustainability in the past and i continue to educate myself more these days. Changing what you’ve learnt your whole life isn’t easy and the greedy little monster in me wants all the pretty she sees. But as a start all the fast fashion brands and i broke up at the beginning of the year. I know i deserve better and that buying clothes that i know i won’t value in a few days won’t make me happy or prettier.
To begin this journey, i cleared my closet and gifted all the good stuff to my little sister that i know she appreciates. I kept only a few pieces, and even though many are from Zara, i’ll value them as they are and take care of the clothes i have. I only bought a couple pieces from ethical brands like Zingara with organic cotton and Faithful the brand and that is it for me. Liberating, easy and honestly, makes me feel like a million bucks.
I haven’t shared a lot about the new shop we’re working on, but we aim to be ethical, organic and all the way zero waste and eco friendly. Creating with a consciousness is the best way to create.
