I have run across many articles that explain what fast fashion is and why it has taken over buying habits. Selling clothes priced so cheaply that they’re encouraging consumers to see them as disposable. There are so many things wrong with this.
- Selling clothes priced so cheaply that they’re encouraging consumers to see them as disposable.
- Ultra-fast fashion means the turnaround for ‘style’. This means either the clothes are being thrown away or (hopefully) going to be thrifted!
- If you think fast fashion is brilliant because it’s so cheap, ask yourself this: how can they afford to make it so cheap? And if you’re buying a top for $2, what do you think the person who made it was paid?
- The reality is, the cheapest fashion is made in sweatshops with unsafe working conditions and child labor.
- The more followers, the more clothes or money they get. The deal is: to promote a fast fashion brand, and they’ll dress you for free.
- Which will probably end up in landfills within weeks.
The thing about fast fashion once you learn about the WHO makes them and WHERE the disposable clothing goes, usually landfills, you are challenged ethically and morally to make better decisions. Yes, cheap clothing for that one night in Vegas or a party is available, but what if you shopped thrift instead? There are many MANY options for your event.
Please, reconsider your choices. Money has power – the choice is literally in your hands to put fast fashion out of business.
