Today is Earth Day, and in honor of this global celebration of environmental consciousness, I’d love to hear about your own personal policies when it comes to earth conscious shopping and consumption. As I’ve said many times, I find most of the information and opinions about sustainable style to be overwhelming and contradictory, so I’m yet to settle on a core policy. But I thrift and I donate on a regular basis. I recycle old clothes into household rags and overdye garments that will get more use in a different shade. I limit my fast fashion purchases and support as many local vendors as I can, as well as buying from designers like Prairie Underground who make garments from organic fibers.
What steps do you take to be environmentally conscious when it comes to shopping and style? Do you thrift? Repurpose? Make your own garments? Buy local or items made from sustainably farmed fibers? Got any resources or articles to recommend to others who are looking to be more earth-friendly in their style-related practices?
