What if it was possible to make a difference in the world? What if buying a tshirt started a ripple effect for a positive impact? What if it was possible to create prosperity in a fair and environmentally sound way with our consumer choices? It is!
Conscious Consumerism: the opportunity to express values, be accountable, invest in what we support, what we represent. Sustainable fashion is how the textile industry CAN adapt; change practices to better support the environment and enhance social justice.
The ability to choose what we consume is a luxury not all people have the privilege to experience. However, for those with the freedom to choose, these choices have the power to support and protect those who do not.
Now is a very good time to reflect on the intersections in our own lives - the points of overlap and connection. Now is a very good time to realize that the way we vote, shop, and consume impacts our natural environment and our global society. Recognizing value is a stimulus to become accountable ... and accountability is the cornerstone of conscious consumerism.
“People protect what they love, they love what they understand and they understand what they are taught.” Jacques-Yves Cousteau

Caring for the Earth is a Good Look From the very start of the growing process, farming organic cotton avoids chemicals from toxic pesticides. This protects local ecosystems from toxic run off, supports improved biodiversity, and increases the potential for sequestering carbon from the atmosphere …..AND it is a healthier condition for farmers and agricultural workers.
