Deep down

I have been working on exploring strategies for #sustainable fashion and apparel industry for past 8 years. My two cents are that WE as #consumers have the most power. We need a cultural shift of consuming less and using more, looking for quality products that have longevity, giving businesses decent price (profit) and not ask for cheap products as they are not good for (people and planet), fast fashion, and so forth. Everything we try to recycle, purpose, donate takes resources and energy, at the end of the day, it may reduce some footprint but we as clever human minds can do better. As a collective action human brain can come up with amazing solutions. REDUCE!!!!
