Smart Sustainable Sale Shopping

18763869469_bbd2eafbee_b.jpg

Now I know how tempting it is to splash out in the sales, but you have to be cautious not get carried away by the marked down price tag. Think carefully before you whack out your wallet- do you really need the item? How often will you wear/use it? Is it good quality? What conditions was it made in? Do you agree with the company’s ethos and operating processes? Even if it’s made by a sustainability-conscious company, having items you don’t use is a waste of your money, as well as the materials and labour that went into producing the product. So take your time and really think about it.

Fashion Revolution Week: What is it and what’s on in London?

 

On 24 April 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This building collapsed despite many workers point out cracks in walls to their managers weeks before. Fashion Revolution was born to raise awareness of disasters like Rana Plaza and to catalyze action to transform the fashion industry into a more ethical, fair and sustainable one. They believe that fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way, where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued equally.

On 18-24 April, Fashion Revolution Week will bring people from all over the world together to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes and accessories.
