Unfortunately, the existing "being green" trend is also being abused of by the market, making real sustainability hard to identify. This makes it even more complicated to make conscious shopping decisions but we can start by:
- supporting brands and products that sustain fair trade;
- avoiding sweat shop brands;
- choosing materials which can be recycled/reused easily or are composed by re-purposed waste;
- purchasing directly from artisans;
- choosing organic or 100% natural materials where possible;
- distinguishing between the "eco-chic" trend and the real and long-term deal
- ...and above all: when craving fashion, shop your own closet first!
