***HOW TO CUT DOWN ON FAST FASHION | How you can make a difference***
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the idea of fast fashion and the cost of it to the environment and to the people make the clothes. If you want to learn more about it I’ve included links below to articles and videos that might be able to explain more.
For some people, fast fashion is very useful. It can help them to get access to essential clothing (eg. school uniforms, work trousers etc.) they might not otherwise be able to afford. But for a lot of us, we probably buy too many cheaply made clothes that end up being thrown away after a few wears.
If you really want to stop fast fashion from happening you should stop buying them altogether, but if that is not an option for you right now I have put together some tips to help to reduce your reliance on cheaply made clothes. I believe it’s better to do something, than nothing at all!
