Why You Should Consume Ethical Fashion

Why You Should Consume Ethical Fashion

Lizzie Foreback, Staff Writer

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle right? Fast fashion and luxury fashion are a no-go. The production of mass-manufactured clothing, nicknamed, “fast fashion” is not eco friendly!

Luxury fashion (Gucci, Versace, Fendi, ect.) is not without sin either, as to keep supply and demand high, sellers will burn out of season surplus clothing. Yes, you heard that right, they burn old clothing. This utter mindlessness of this is without explanation.

Though, unlike luxury fashion, fast fashion is understandably popular among today’s youth. The convenience is so tempting, so one can understand why they might stick to that. However thrifting, secondhand clothing can be a much better alternative and look just as cute!

There are even second-hand clothing apps such as Depop, Poshmark, and Nasty Gal, which allow you to order second-hand clothing from anywhere in the world! Secondhand fashion seekers can also look to even places such as Goodwill (a favorite of mine) for the most recent fashion crazes. Ultimately, it is perfectly understandable to want to stick with fast fashion, but secondhand clothing has never been easier to find and is a fantastic alternative!
