It it not always easy to find good things, but do not get fooled.
JUST BECAUSE YOUR FAST FASHION CHEAP COTTON SHIRT IS VEGAN DOES NOT MAKE IT THAT MUCH BETTER…
For me dressing vegan is also about or actually mostly about taking care of our environment, watching out for pollution and wearing items that did not harm the world, the nature, no animals and ALSO NO HUMAN RIGHTS!!
PLUS WEAR IT ONCE, TWICE, THREE TIMES, 1 YEAR, 2 YEARS, TILL IT IS USED OR GIVE IT AWAY TO SOMEBODY WHO WOULD LOVE IT MORE.
IT NEEDS TO BE:
V Fashion= Vegan Fashion
With a cruelty free procedure and no animal used materials involved
N Fashion= Nature Fashion
No water should be harmed by producing the print or the color of the fabric!
Fashion is unfortunately the second largest consumer and polluter of water.
Producing those huge amount of clothing uses a lot of water which a lot of people don’t even have access to.
By dying all those fabrics we pollute the water and send the dirty water back to our nature in rivers, lakes and seas.
20% of global industrial water pollution comes from the dyeing and treatment of clothing.
We destroy our soil our mother earth with fashion.
The fashion industry sadly uses a lot of toxins and chemicals to produce their garments.
The production of textile fibre alone uses 20 billion pounds of chemicals a years.
Climate change and Fashion have a close relationship.
The production itself already of all those raw materials uses a lot of land and energy of nature.
Polyester, nylon, and other petroleum-based materials emit harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrous oxide–a very potent greenhouse gas.
Plus the export around the world as well uses large amount of environmental footprint.
Sadly most fast fashion is made out of oil.
Polyester, acrylic, nylon, spandex, and acetate are all made from non renewable fossil-fuels (oil.
This requires a huge amount of energy to produce.
And we can’t just burn OIL RIGHT?!
Those fabrics take from 30-200 years to biodegrade and release chemicals which are very harmful for our nature and all the beings living on it.
SO YOU BUY IT ONCE, WEAR IT TWICE AND IT ENDS UP IN A LANDFILL FOR 200 YEARS.
F Fashion= FAIR TRADE
It should be fashion that has transparency, where does it come from, who made it, how much did that person earn and NO IT IS NOT OK THAT IT COSTS YOU NOTHING TO BUY IT AND THE PERSON WHO STITCHED IT GET’S NOTHING OUT OF IT.
NO IT IS NOT OK THAT THE LARGE MACHINE AND COMPANY USES HUMANS FROM ANY AGE ON TO SIT IN DANGEROUS SPACES IN ORDER TO STITCH US A SHIRT.
BE CRUELTY FREE
LOVE YOUR NATURE
WE ALL DID NOT DESERVE THIS
BREATH IN THE SKY ABOVE YOU
FEEL THE EARTH BELOW YOU
CHERISH THE FIRE IN YOU
AND LOVE WATER AROUND YOU
The only way to be fashionable in this way is to
find creative solutions that support all those 4 elements.
BE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT THERE IS
AND CHOSE YOUR GARMENTS WITH RESPECT,LOVE AND COMPASSION
