Conscious Style Seekers

We are building a community to rethink 'conscious consumption and share your thoughts on this topic out of the box.

The term "conscious consumption" has been locked in moral issues about what it's made of or how to use the labor force etc. However, there is another way to solve the problem: finding a long-lasting style that won't be changed easily. This requires some creative thinking "out of the box." For example, consider investing in classic pieces that can be worn for years, mixing and matching different items to create new looks, or shopping at thrift stores or vintage shops for one-of-a-kind finds. By thinking creatively about our wardrobe choices, we can make more conscious decisions about our clothing that will have a positive impact on the environment and those who make our clothes.

In many cases, environmental propaganda includes a notion of 'without sacrificing style'. But, in reality, basic demand as a consumer pursuing to buy pretty, reliable and ever-lasting styled products often should be subordinate in the context. The key is how to figure out a way of consuming that not only does good but also looks good.

"Conscious consumption" can be more than simply about the product itself but also the production process and the people involved. It is crucial to think about the supply chain and what goes into making the products we buy. For example, the cotton industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. Cotton production uses large amounts of water and pesticides, and it is estimated that global cotton production contributes to 1% of the world's pesticide use. In addition, the process of growing, harvesting, and processing cotton use a great deal of energy, which results in greenhouse gas emissions. When we buy cotton products, we are supporting an industry that has a significant impact on the environment.

If you are looking to be a more conscious consumer, there are a few key things to keep in mind. First, think about what you need versus what you want. Do you really need that new shirt or can you make do with what you have? Second, consider the environmental and social impact of the products you are buying. Where were they made and how were they made? What materials are they made from? Who made them and under what conditions? And finally, think about how long you will use the product. Will you use it for years or will it end up in the landfill after a few wears?

Making more conscious decisions about the clothing we buy can have a positive impact on the environment and the people who make our clothes. When we take the time to think about our wardrobe choices, we can choose to support sustainable and ethical fashion brands that are making a positive difference in the world. We can also shop secondhand to extend the life of clothing and keep it out of landfill. By making small changes in our shopping habits, we can make a big impact on the fashion industry and the planet.
