There’s something liberating about implementing small changes to your lifestyle in aid of creating a healthier and more positive environment for us all.
Knowing that the right people are being fairly compensated for their work in producing the t-shirt that I wear and that the fabric is made from a sustainable option makes me feel a bit better knowing I can play a small part in a revolution with these simple choices.
I am passionate about being as Ethical and Sustainable as I possibly can when creating my collections, and this has inevitably leaked over into everyday life. Being mindful of your impact on the world is a small habit for one person that in numbers can mean great positive change for our entire planet.
I’d love to share with you 5 of my Favourite Fashion/Sustainability/Lifestyle Podcasts to help you stay in the loop and hear about the impressive things that the wider community are doing and what you can do to make a difference. Whether you are a serious eco-fashion devotee or are just curious to see what all the fuss is about these shows are a great way to get informed and get your brain ticking about what all of our decisions actually mean for the wider community.
