The average American throws away 82 pounds of clothes every year!

We have shared information before about the environmental impact of fast fashion, but we wanted to share this video from @Opposingviews as millions of people have viewed it and we think it does a wonderful job showing how we all contribute this issue.

Did you know that clothes are the 2nd largest source of pollution, after oil?

The industry shift toward fast fashion has greatly accelerated the mass disposal of clothes. The industry has created a monster in that brands attempt to keep up with the ever changing trends, and in order to do so in a timely manner, the overall quality of mass produced clothing has lowered for these brands. After a few wearings and washings, the fast fashion styles are not as attractive as when first purchased, and thus lead to increased disposal.

We believe in producing high quality products that last, and we use environmentally friendly manufacturing processes to limit our impact on the planet!

Buy well, buy less, reuse, and support brands that help combat this growing issue.
