The new year is in. Feelings of change are around us, and high streets are already packed with spring trends. It’s inevitable that despite what’s going on in the wider world (the devastating forest fires in Australia for example ) that attentions will turn once again to fashion. So let’s ask the question….do you shop sustainable fashion? Sustainable fashion means something that is eco friendly. It doesn’t harm the earth in it’s production. Fast fashion is the second biggest polluting industry after oil! The textile industry emits more greenhouse gas emissions than international shipping and aviation combined!!!
