Please for the love of God buy more second-hand clothing! There's more clothes on Earth than humanity will ever need. We're producing things which are going straight to the landfill, so every second-hand purchase you make offsets that in some way. So congratulations, you've come to the right place.
I think all of us have become more sustainable this year as the pandemic has done a great job of forcing us to separate needs from wants. I think about how every purchase I make causes a ripple effect on this earth, and think long and hard about what that ripple will be.
It means you consider the effects your fashion has on the planet every time you think about adding to your wardrobe.
