Hi everyone & happy Tuesday!
For those of you who don’t know, this year I have challenged my self to buy absolutely no new clothes for the whole of 2017!
I am definitely a bit of a shopaholic & a self confessed clothes hoarder.
Ok – make that serious shopaholic.
I have committed to 365 days of no new close in an attempt to raise awareness of ‘fast fashion’ & the effects that our extreme consumption have on the lives of others & the planet. I also hope to try & break the attachment that I have to material items & encourage like minded people to do the same to live a fuller & freer life by finding content in non-materialistic living.
I will also be travelling to India in March on my own, to visit a fair trade clothes factory & to find out more about the positive effects that fair trade has on the lives of those who make our clothes – stay tuned!
To find out more, watch my first YouTube video for my channel Ration The Fashion & subscribe to follow my journey & travels! If you have any questions or comments, please leave them as I will reply to everyone 🙂 Thank you & have a fab day, Jess x
PS – Day 31 of no new clothes & still going strong.
