SUSTAINABILITY AND CIRCULARITY
Slow and Sustainable Fashion
From forced labor tales to stories of monstrous levels of carbon emissions, fashion’s struggle with sustainability is well known.
❌“93% of surveyed brands aren’t paying garment workers a living wage and 80% of garment workers are women. They are routinely paid less than their male counterparts. Gender inequality is deeply rooted in the industry’s power imbalance, and gendered pay has a direct link to verbal, physical and sexual assault.”* *FashionChecker
There are good points though!😅
- The sustainable fashion sector is providing a key part of the solution to fashion’s sustainable struggles and is working to create a kinder fashion industry.
- Gen Z is the most willing of any generation to pay more for sustainable products
- The pandemic also increased our desire to shop sustainably.
😎Sooo…let’s take a look at some tips for “slow fashion on a budget”:
- Care for your existing pieces
- Be pick and save up for quality clothing
- Shop secondhand and vintage
- Buy directly from creators
- Avoid trends by knowing your personal style.
👉🏽Consumers are engaging with food and nutrition like never before and we investigated important words strictly related to the “food” word (just scroll the feed and find out our late post).
The environmental impact of food production and food waste is growing fast and all the world knows that if we want to win the battle against climate change we need to review our habits even in terms of food production and consumption.
🤗As consumers, we can take our part in this challenge:
- becoming increasingly aware of the repercussions of our actions
- placing pressure on retailers and brands to adopt more environmentally sustainable solutions
- reducing food waste investigating different ways in which we can consume the same ingredient (food derivatives).
🕵🏼Discovering is always a beautiful journey…even more when we are talking about FOOD!
