In September of 2015, I watched “The True Cost” and it changed my life. I decided that I would never again purchase any fashion item that was not either:
- Made in the U.S.A.
- Created using sustainable materials
- Created using fair trade/transparent labor practices
I wrote about my reasoning and thought process – including how I would handle the items in my existing wardrobe that didn’t fit these criteria – in this post, so if you’re curious about the backstory, I highly recommend taking a peek at that first! But if you’re up to speed on all that, I’ll dig right into how I’m feeling after a year (and a few months) of living with these restrictions.
