It's April so its time think about the earth, our earth. How does fashion impact the earth? How does what you buy, wear, and throw out make a difference in the world? Does that cotton shirt you wear exploit children?
So I picked up a book called Green is the New Black by Tamsin Blanchard who gives us
a fashionista's bible to follow by being ethical and still glamorous. Her book shows us how to change the world and still be styling.
I am going to throw out some ideas from her book. Each week we'll explore one of her ideas, give suggestions on how to change. So before you huff and puff and blow me away, think for a minute about global warming and the effect it is having on the planet and polar bears. Everyone of us has a responsibility to planet Earth.
Shop ethically, buy and wear second hand clothes. Recreate what you have, learn to knit, Recycle, shop and sell. There are sites where you can find what you are looking for and be ethically responsible to the people of the world. See you here next week for a lesson the the greening of fashion. Keep Styling in Delco.
