With the start of a New Year, we know you’re probably on the lookout for some new goals. As advocates for environmental sustainability and eco-friendly lifestyles, we’d like to share some sustainable actions that you could consider for 2022:
1. Bring reusable utensils, straws, or bags when shopping to avoid the use of unnecessary one-time waste.
2. Consider making sustainable fashion choices.
3. Avoid cosmetics with palm oil and products tested on animals.
4. Start composting and look into your city’s waste collection plan.
Sustainable fashion describes the preference of eco-conscious methods in the design, manufacturing, and distribution stages of clothing production. It offers a counter narrative to fast fashion cycles which prioritize rapidly evolving ‘trends’ and contribute to the depletion of Earth’s natural resources. While fast fashion causes severe environmental havoc, it also has a psychological toll on consumers who are burdened to believe that they must continually purchase the latest trends to fulfil an unrealistic sense of self-worth.
What exactly is a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe is a curated closet full of all of your favourite pieces appropriate to the current season. Often limited to 37 pieces including shoes, bags and coats, we are encouraged to choose a neutral palette for the pieces and get creative with outfit combinations.
