This piece is all about the separation between the wealthy nations and the poor nations. Children in first world countries going to school, shopping at malls, and being blinded to the lives of other children around the world. Children in third world countries too impoverished to go to school, working in factories that are bad for their health, barely getting their basic necessities met, creating useless products for greedy Americans and having no voice in their own lives. This drawing started out as another piece in my “Fast Fashion” series, highlighting the terrible effects of the clothing industry on third world communities around the globe. Yet, I now realize it relates to even more than that. Did you know that 1.1 billion people around the globe survive on $1 a day or less? I didn’t. Why don’t we know this? Why isn’t this blasted full volume at us every day just like all those marketing ads are? This piece is about the world as a whole, and how me and you are constantly being blinded to the struggles of those around the globe, instead of fed ideas of how we can help.

Specadirt Vintage is a Canadian company striving to satisfy your desire for rare and classic pieces of clothing, shoes and accessories. We are proud to not be creating new materials destined for landfills. Instead, Specadirt finds a second life for existing pieces of fashion. Doing this helps slow the harmful cycle of fast fashion. And no...our clothing is not stained with dirt. Every shirt, skirt, and fanny pack is checked for quality and described in detail if in anything other than great condition.
The galaxy logo is meant to be a reminder to look at the  bigger picture; not to get caught up on the little things that don’t matter in the long run. It’s also a reminder that we are all in the universe together, so we should work with kindness and compassion to create a better world where companies care about their impact on the planet and treatment of their employees.

Minimalism for the win! This is Morgan @morgan_a_osburn. For her 30th birthday, she decided to reduce her wardrobe to 30 items as part of a move to simplify her life and show that you really don't NEED so much stuff to get by.
.
.
.
How did she achieve this? By focusing on neutrals and items that could be layered or worn in multiple ways. .
.
.
There were valid concerns. Would a repetitive wardrobe seem unprofessional in her workplace? Turns out, pretty much no one noticed.  Sounds disheartening, but she chose to find it liberating. How much time do we waste worrying about what others are thinking about us...when they're probably not thinking about us at all!
.
.
.
A year later, and she's still keeping to her resolution that all the clothing she owns can fit into a single suitcase. 👏👏👏 Can you say the same? .
.
.
Less stuff = less waste = less impact on the planet. What are you able to get by on in your life in a smaller amount than the average joe?

Less stuff = less strain for the planet. Worried about what to wearwith a minimalist lifestyle? Focus on the basics: items that can be used for multiple things, clothing that layers, things in neutral colors.
.
.
.
For me, it's a jacket that works for a range of temperatures, a nice pair of black jeans that I can work/interview/go out in, and tops that are designed for hiking, but look nice enough to pass in real life.
.

Or wait for my next post and meet my pal with a 30 item wardrobe!

Last one! #experimental #handwoven Fringe bag No.05 #zerowaste made from  #upcycledclothing | At 35.00 it’s a steal! #feminist #fastfashionsucks #oneinamillion #fashionrevolution
This summer I participated in Collaction’s slow fashion summer. No new clothes for the whole summer. Thousands of people from all over the world participated. Did you?
__________
⬅️ Swipe left to see what we collectively achieved! 👯‍♀️
__________
⭐️30,000 items of clothing were NOT bought!
⭐️We reduced CO2 emissions by 360,000 kg (by not producing and transporting all those clothes)!
⭐️We saved over 90 million litres of water - that’s 36 Olympic sized swimming pools!

The girls and I enjoyed a 1/2 day off from school with a trip to the thrift store to stock up on Fall clothes. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We’ve started to have conversations with the kids about fast fashion, and how big box retailers lead the industry in unfair working conditions, pollution, and mass consumption of the earth’s water. And even though Target clothes are hella cute, our image and getting that “perfect insta outfit”, isn’t more important than the planet and the animals, including humans, living on it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We spent $50 and stocked up on Gap, Target, Levi’s and Abercrombie Jeans. Plus: shirts, skirts, dresses, casual workout tops, throw down shorts, and sunglasses. I wanted to show them that they could, in fact, find ALL the cool stuff AND be environmentally conscious without sacrificing style. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We’ve got to teach them young because the future is female, and the children are our future. #respect. .

Before I quit fast fashion I (like most people) brought stuff from #Primark both the tops are from there but they are from the men’s section and for some reason they are better quality than the women ones. I’ve had these tops for almost 4 years now! (Which is impressive when it comes to Primark clothes) Remember always #donateclothes if you don’t like them any more. Don’t throw away wearable products because that most likely goes straight to #landfill  Also the cute shorts are from a charity shop because you can find amazing things there and help a good cause 💛💚💛 #fastfashionsucks #ethicalfashion #thrift #cuteshorts #outfit #batman #starwars #stillnerdy #reuse #helptheplanet

This time of the year you can get stuck. All the trendy, fast-fashion stores with their cheap & easy fall clothes. Don’t get caught in the trap! Helpful questions when shopping: - will this last more than a season? - Will this look nice after washing? - Who made this? & did they receive a fair wage based on the price its being sold for? - will I end up throwing this away?

This picture pretty much sums up how much fun we had at our clothing swap at Skyland house. One big reminder for me, as I was going through the piles of clothing left behind, is that certain fabrics break down much faster than others, meaning that they get small pills or fuzz balls on them, or small tears. One way to prevent pilling is to hang dry your clothing, which requires using more fabric softener in order to prevent crunchiness. Better yet, shop at consignment stores and buy higher quality clothing!! You are not only investing in a better quality item for yourself, but also ensuring that if you do decide to part with it, it will hopefully still be in good enough shape for someone else to use it. ... otherwise you’ll send it to goodwill and they will send to to a textile recycler, who might send it to a landfill. Sending something to goodwill that’s stretched, stained, torn, or pilled is pretty much a guarantee it’ll be turned into a rag (and eventually sent to a landfill) or sent directly to a landfill. It all starts with choosing good fabric and taking care of it. .

Strawberry-banana dress was so adorable! We hemmed the length and added a little bit of elastic to the waist so it would naturally sit up on her waistline (the bodice was a little too long for her torso!). 90s textile design gets me exciteedddd 🍓🍌

Realizing more and more why I love 60’s futurism. Let’s bring the 60’s back and stop outsourcing!
If you haven’t seen this movie, watch it! You’ll never shop at H&M, Forever21 or Zara again XO

I bought this @kmartaus jumper a week ago. I wore it 3 times before I washed it. It did not have a hole prior to washing. One wash. One hole. I'm not happy. I won't be buying at  #kmart again.

This is reality.  It doesn’t look like a lot but this is a lot at one time for someone with ADHD/depression.  I do better if I shop orders as they come, I feel more in control.  All but one order is from the last two days.  I’m grateful, just overwhelmed. ☕️

Christine loved this tshirt design but the fit was not her style. We reshaped it into a tank and cropped the length. Christine you are a TOTAL GEM!
.

$15 to turn a tshirt into a tank and $10 to hem a tshirt. Bring in 5 or more tshirts for 20% off those two alterations!

One of the questions I get asked the most is, where I go to shop/get inspired when boycotting #fastfashion. My personal saviour has been instagram, where there are luckily loads of likeminded people that have confronted #highstreet brands about their problematic practices and actions. Some of the first accounts that motivated me to start switching out the clothes in my closet were these three brilliant teams of people - and I hope you’ll go check them out, especially if you need some #sustainablefashion #slowfashion inspiration too. They are individually handling and tackling big issues in their own, unique way, and have all helped me with finding better ways to shop, and helped me educate myself on how detrimental fast fashion can be for people and planet. All are tagged in their photos above. IF YOU ARE RUINING THE PLANET, IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW STLYLISH YOU LOOK - it’s super uncool, unfashionable and so outdated to not give a shit about Mother Earth 🌏 #madeinbangladesh #sweatshop #sweatshopfree #fastfashionstore #fastfashionsucks #fastfashion #femaleempowerment #fastfashionbrand #primark #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #boycottprimark #boycottfastfashion

Make your own waste-free dress-up costumes. For many parents, the words ‘fancy dress’ or ‘book week costume’ can fill them with dread. It needn’t - it doesn’t take long to sew a costume and my kids love to be involved in the process. I made this Peter Rabbit costume from fabric scraps we had piled up in our arts and crafts room - a thread-bare fur coat that I purchased from an op shop in my teens, one of my old tee-shirts, some seersucker and toile fabric and felt scraps for the mask - no plastic packaging or shipping miles. I’ve been wondering when it became unfashionable to say that I know how to put clothes together. Not that long ago in the history of our species, if you didn’t know how to clothe yourself, in some parts of the globe it would have meant certain death. #lifeskills Of course I have bought the occasional dress-up, but where time permits, making something from what I have is my go-to option. The following quote applies to all areas of modern living - from the great Theodore Roosevelt: “Do what you can, with what you’ve got, where you are”. #makeyourownclothes #fastfashionsucks #sustainability #imadethis #dowhatyoucanwithwhatyouhave

Feelin' relaxed in my @lucyandyak (cuz I know I'm supporting ethical and slow fashion) 🌼🌱 wearing my Lucy and Yak dungarees and my ethically produced t-shirt from @exceedinglyvegan 🥑 fast fashion is one of the most polluting industries on earth with UK households alone sending over 300,000 tonnes of it to landfill in 2016, with the volume of clothing purchased rising to 1.13 million tonnes, resulting in 26 million tonnes of CO2 being produced in the same year [the Guardian]. Garment workers paid as little as US $1-3 per day [@eatingwithmax] whilst being subjected to poor working conditions and treatment👗dyes used in clothing have been tested and found to contain chemicals which are carcinogenic and put the wearer's health at major risk, whilst synthetic fibres shed microplastics into the water ways when washed, which are then consumed by marine life, before making their way up the food chain into humans. Not to mention the cotton farmers who die of cancers, and who's children are born with severe disabilities as a result of the toxic chemicals used to farm the crop [The True Cost]. Consume consciously. Buy less, buy ethical, buy used, buy well. Your wardrobe doesn't have to cost the earth 🌎

I hate that I work in a place that gathers all the #fastfashion brands together, to promote this twisted culture. I don't work at the shops, but I see them through my workday. Usually I can put on my work-goggles and adjust, but somedays.. Like this, it makes me so angry, and hopeless. We know the facts, we know these clothes are made by poor women and children in bad conditions, working for a few cents a day. We know the fabrics are of bad quality, and irritate our skin (our biggest organ, we should take care of it, not rub it in chemicals). We know that because of fast fashion, most of the clothes from last "season" end up in the junkyards and oceans and doesn't compose in decades. But still, you feel like buing a shirt? Really? Just don't, wake up from you little entitled bubble and don't. Peace. ✌🏽

Happy fabulous Friday 💄 To top off the day, here are some pretty blouses in the shop right now. I love all the feminine looks, soft bows and ruffles. DM for information to buy or check out the Etsy shop link in my profile.

I can across the term “business fabulous” on the urban dictionary today. Its when you dress so fabulous at work that no one is on your level. Let’s get rid of the business casual term. I never understood that term anyway. Yes! 💗

Hey @sproutupnyc friends! No use tiptoeing around it...let’s get down and dirty and talk #carbonfootprint 💭 .
What is your carbon foot print? Well it’s an estimate of the tons, yes tons, of carbon our lifestyles produce. The average American produces 16 tons per year just living a normal life... getting groceries, using electricity, driving to work, buying new clothes etc, the #tons allowable per person that’s recommended to prevent #climatechange ? Just 2.
.
So you might say, well maybe I’m not average, I already know some stuff about sustainability! Or you might ask yourself, where is my carbon footprint coming from and how can I do (even) better? .
@nature_org has a great carbon foot print calculator where you can put in your info and play around to see where you might reduce your carbon production, or give yourself a pat on the back for your hard work 😊🌱
.
Some ways you can reduce your footprint (and save money too) are #reducingwaste #eatinglocal #thrifting more and eating #lessmeatmoreveggies .
Besides us here at @SproutUpNYC 😉, some great resources for #environmentalinspiration and resources for getting involved in your community are @sustainablecolumbia @nyu_green @biobus @barnard.environmental.science @hudsonriverpark @naturebasedny @harlemgrown @bronxisblooming and for tips and helpful information: @lowimpactmovement @sustainably_vegan @thefairlylocalvegan @ecowarriorprincess @thegrowist @zerowastehome @ecoschoolsnyc @ecowithem_ .

We have to believe that we can change things. Remember that you vote with your wallet. Every purchase you make shows a demand for the product you are purchasing. Want to have more eco-friendly options in the future? Invest in the ones that are available now. If manufacturers see that there's money to be made in producing sustainable products, you'd better believe you'll start seeing more on the market!

Caked and ready to cast on tomorrow for #perthcaston this is the only yarn from #perthyarnfest18 I'll be casting on this year as the rest is going in a box until 2019! This yarn managed to sneak out because it's christmassy and it would be frightfully unseasonal knitting this in January 😱

Have you seen #truecostmovie? It was such an eye-opening and jaw-dropping documentary on the industry of clothing. Over decades, the price of clothing has decreased, while the human and environmental cost has dramatically increased. While True Cost only highlights the impact of clothing, this also applies to jewelry and accessories. We've simply evolved into a wasteful, throwaway society; and we’re not thinking about the damage it can do our environments and the people in them. ⠀
〰⠀
I have created a list of questions to ask yourself before you buy jewelry so that you can start building your #consciouscollection. Read it here: hathorway.com/blogs or go directly to https://goo.gl/Jw5tC6 ⠀

Another outing for this thrifted, upcycled blouse 👚✨
__________
The average person buys 60% more clothes and keeps them for half as long as they did 15 years ago. Wearing our clothes more often can be one of the best ways to reduce our consumption 💁🏻‍♀️
___________
Before you buy something new, ask yourself “Will I wear this 30 times”? If the answer is no, consider renting, borrowing, or buying preloved instead 💕

Yeah shizzles baby, het is eindelijk zo ver 🙌🤩. De geboorte van de stylingstrateeg samen met @shirly_de_vos 
Achter de schermen hebben wij samen heel intensief gewerkt om onze passie, grote liefde en kennis te bundelen. En hier is iets heel unieks en moois uit ontstaan.

Een project dat er nog helemaal niet is. Waar we creative design, styling en strategie samen hebben geblend. Een offline project waarbij wij jouw signature gaan ontdekken en vormgeven, helemaal samen met jou in een small vip group.

Meet The Styling Project by Shirly en Maaike👘

Sta jij ook  voor je kledingkast met je handen in je haar, afvragend waar het is mis gegaan? Hangers en stapels vol kleding die het net niet zijn, broeken die je een maat te klein hebt gekocht omdat je hoopte dat het uiteindelijk wel zou passen… Aan combi’s en setjes wil je wel denken maar hey, de combinaties zijn zo veilig en binnen de lijntjes.

Stiekem zou je het wel willen. Een kledingkast vol toffe outfits. Combinaties die elkaar versterken. Setjes die je eenvoudig zelf kunt samenstellen, de ene keer lekker sexy, de andere keer fierce en daarna weer super high end.

Join The Styling Project 
Styling strategisch inzetten. Heb je daar wel eens bij stil gestaan wat dat voor impact zou hebben. Voor jou en jouw business. Zou het niet super tof zijn om je eigen signature outfits te creeeren die je kunt inzetten voor je fotoshoots, naar events, je stories op social en foto’s die je zelf maakt. Een gepersonaliseerde stylingguide met de juiste kleding, stijl en accesoires die jouw persoonlijkheid en verhaal met elkaar in harmonie versterken. 
Ben jij er klaar voor om styling, design en strategie met elkaar te verbinden? Samen met ons jouw high end style te vinden en deze strategisch in te gaan inzetten. Nieuwsgierig en interesse? Mail maaike@maaikebruggeman.nl zodat we een persoonlijke zoom met jou kunnen inplannen.

thrifted // with London fashion week coming up it won’t be long until the shops are filled with the latest fast fashion trends...if you’ve ever watched @truecostmovie you’ll know the environmental impacts of high street clothing brands 🛍 Textile waste, toxic chemicals, micro fibers in our oceans just to name a few! 
So how can you make a difference? By buying second hand ✌🏻I can’t remember the last time I bought new, and the jacket in this photo is literally my favourite thrifted piece 😍 my go-to way for reducing your impact is to hit the charity shops! Promise you’ll soon love it 🤩💚

I’ve heard a lot lately that we should stop putting the pressure for solving environmental issues regarding fast fashion on the consumer. That it should be the companies who should be making the changes. While I completely agree with this 100% it has become clear that fashion companies do not care. They market greenwashing campaigns but at the end of the day, as long as they are making money, they will continue sucking up our resources and exploiting their workers. It is the responsibility of the consumer to stop paying for this, because if you give fast fashion companies your money you are telling them this is ok. Those of us who are privileged enough to choose where our money goes need to start voting with our wallet. If you know about the chemicals used in production plants, the water waste it involves or the workers who are abused in sweatshops then start sharing this information. If you don’t, then go educate yourself. Once you know better it is your responsibility to do better. .

Looking for clothing that comes from responsible sources, pays its workers a fair wage, AND has pockets? Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong!

Thank you, swahlee! Based in northern India, they are providing opportunities for young women who haven't had access to education. Fair, livable wages, safe jobs, and traditionally made fabrics sourced responsibly are all part of the mission. .

From swahlee: "The handloom fabrics for our dresses are woven by Freeset, a company Fair Trade guaranteed by the WFTO. You can be sure the makers of your dress, from weaving to cutting and sewing, receive fair and dignified employment, so your purchase has double the impact."

Also, did I mention POCKETS? You know the dresses were designed by women when they have real working pockets!

Three simple steps to reduce your global impact, not just in the clothing realm, but in everything you do. .
.
.
It's time for a massive reset on our consumer-driven mentality. Do you really need it in the first place? Can one item work for multiple uses? Will it last? Can I extend its life by carrying for it better or by repairing it? .
.
.
What other questions do you ask yourself when considering a purchase?

For the past several years, I’ve been doing my best to support local businesses who are really doing their part to encourage people to stop contributing to fast fashion. It’s not always possible. I’m not perfect. But now when I walk into stores whose clothes once filled my closet, I think twice. My friend Kaley of @kaleyjewelryco is making beautiful jewelry. I’m wearing one of her necklaces (one of my favorites) along with an @elizsuzann tank.

We found this very cool primary colors long sleeve, collared pajama shirt at St. Vincent thrift store. The fabric was amazing but the fit of the shirt wasn't structured enough for a button-down that someone could wear out.
.
.
We shortened and slightly gathered the sleeves, cropped the hem, and reworked the neckline into a wide v-neck.

We found this very cool primary colors long sleeve, collared pajama shirt at St. Vincent thrift store. The fabric was amazing but the fit of the shirt wasn't structured enough for a button-down that someone could wear out. . . We shortened and slightly gathered the sleeves, cropped the hem, and reworked the neckline into a wide v-neck. . .

Fast Fashion is no joke. Here’s some not fun facts about it:⠀
1. 80 billion pieces of clothing are consumed globally every year.⠀
2. Only 10% of the clothes people donate to thrift stores or charities get sold, the rest goes to landfill.⠀
3. Compared to 16 years ago (2002), the average person buys 60% more clothing and keeps them for half as long.⠀
And that’s just a few! ⠀
Here at Anew we believe in quality over quantity and buying products that you want to use / wear all the time and that last! Let’s make fast fashion a thing of the past. 💃🏼 ⠀

“Globalization has allowed companies to outsource a lot of their product development and manufacturing. Therefore, companies can get their clothing made from factory workers in Bangladesh, for example, for wages lower than $1 a day and in conditions that would have never been allowed in the countries they sell their clothing in. Unfortunately, as people buy clothing from these companies, they put in their vote telling the companies to continue. Therefore, we directly impact the conditions that allow people to have quality jobs” (@theworldwithmnr @huffpost)

Quick trick.  If your clothes are looking a little frumpy on your mannequin, pull the material back to define the waist better.  Secure with rubber and, chip clip, binder clips or get these plastic clothespins from Dollar Tree.  I think they come 6 to a pack! 👗

wise words by @viviennewestwood

who else has a graveyard of clothes you were too lazy to return in your closet? i for one do. this summer i decided to stop shopping as much for impulse "night out" outfits and find staples to mix and match outfits. with fall around the corner i'm planning to do the same and to use thrift and consignment stores to my advantage.
who else shops at second hand clothing shops for deals?

Dear #sewphotohop Day 11 - Creative process... One of the things I'm guilty of is bragging about a bargain, but as the late, great #gorddownie sang: "When something's too cheap, Somebody's paying something". So the last stage of my creative process is changing the story that can be told about the clothes.  Once I have a refashioned piece or a capsule complete, I write a story about it.  When you wear #handmade, #memade, #upcycled, #fairtrade, #refashioned clothes, the story never has to be how cheaply you came by something, and it never should be.

There’s such BEAUTY in the details #fastfashionsucks
These two used to be dresses. I loved them but they were both a bit tight across the chest so I rarely wore them 😕
__________
I had a big wardrobe clear-out recently but, instead of getting rid of them, I took them to my tailor and asked if she could make them into skirts. She could! Hurra 🙌🏼

So now I have two beautiful skirts instead of two too-tight dresses 💁🏻‍♀️✨

Sweater weather in Michigan is upon us...But you know I’m going to be warm and cozy all season long in my thrifted sweaters! The pieces I thrift are the ones I love the most, so I’m excited to break out my secondhand sweaters. Be mindful of fast fashion this season, try out secondhand shops instead!☺️🍂 #thehappiestplanet #fastfashionsucks
