BABE ON A MISSION // SUSTAINABLE & FAST FASHION

Saturday, September 15, 2018


HEY, loves
I am so happy I have a chance to be a part of something incredibly beautiful and powerful. I learned so much about supporting ecology, self-love and empowerment of women, thanks to all the Babes. And let's make a world a better place by choosing sustainable fashion that is good for the planet!

Let me tell you more about it. By Wikipedia sustainable fashion, also called Eco fashion, is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability, the goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the environment and social responsibility. It can be seen as an alternative trend against fast fashion.





Actually the fashion industry is the second largest pollution in the world. Fast fashion refers to fashion that is quickly produced in order to get new trends to the market as quickly and cheaply as possible. Also, it is designed to be replaced quickly. This fashion has a massive impact on the environment and the current climate change crisis. 

By buying from the fast fashion stores you are agreeing with trapping millions of young women into poverty. Most of them are really young and they earn less than 3$ per day. These cheap clothes are made by underage workers mostly women as young as 14 and they work long hours for low salary.
These stores like H&M, Zara, Berskha, Forever 21 are just a few on that list. You can find that list of fast fashion stores online. I definitely recommend you to search about it a little bit more, because it's really interesting. At least for me!




If you know a Beyonce's clothing line that the main idea is all about female empowerment. You also need to know that all these clothes are made in sweatshops by women that are paid 54 cents per hour in really bad living conditions and long work hours. That is really sad, but it's the truth.

So, the question is where can I find sustainable fashion pieces that by buying it I would make at least a small change in the fashion industry? There are many little eco-friendly shops that you can find and they are usually super unique. Next, you can shop at the designers stores, but I think many people and also me to don't have the possibilities to. The last my option and my favourite is to go to second-hand shops. As you may or may not know I really love and enjoy thrifting and I have talked about thifting on this blog many times. 



This navy jumper that I am wearing is made of GOTS certified organic cotton in an ethically-run wind-powered factory using no nasties, chemicals or pesticides. It is SUPER comfy and soft and I can't wait to wear it more on these colder days that are coming. Get yourself one at - Babe Universe!

Even if you think that one person can't do much to change something, you totally can! And it's the way to make a change on this planet that we are living in.
 Do it for you, for me and for all us!

What are your thoughts on sustainable / fast fashion?

love, Bernadeta
