This week there is a lot of talk of the cost of Fast Fashion as it’s Fashion Revolution week.
For over a decade I’ve been wearing second hand clobber head to toe. I put some on insta to inspire others of the love of #SecondHandChic ... (and give me an excuse to go to the chazzas more!)
I put loads of shopping tips on insta, find me at @plastic_a_lot_less In 2006 me & my Mum walked around Primark, questioned why it was so cheap, walked out empty handed and I never went back – having only a few years earlier become a fast fashion lover when I discovered Primark when I lived in Newcastle Upon Tyne. I hadn’t watched a documentary, there wasn’t much talk about it at the time, but common senses said it wasn’t right.
It was Being-PALL that actually kept me going, knowing all the clothes arrived in the shops packaged in (hidden) plastic. I still get my fix – by going to the charity shops, finding the odd bargain on e-bay, boot sales and wearing anyones casts offs whose happy to give them to me! I put loads of shopping tips on insta, find me at @plastic_a_lot_less and follow me there.
I’ve only had the courage to watch the trailer, of ‘The True Cost’ I’ve yet to watch the film, plastic may stop you supporting fast fashion, but like with many plastic items refused that could have a way bigger impact than we can imagine ….
Get shopping second hand, there are joys in charity shop shopping and it’s not just the bargains!
