The iconic lyrics "Cause we are living in a material world, And I am a material girl" by Madonna, best describe the current culture. I believe as consumers, we hold a social responsibility to make mindful purchases. To purchase what we need and consider the factory of longevity. I envision a society that truly appreciates the stuff they own, by valuing the history of the item- the materials/who produced it. Viewing a fast fashion top as simply a cheap, trendy top can be dangerous as consumers dissociate from the unethical labour behind it and the ecological cost. I plan to support initiatives that focus on thrifting and sharing companies that are conscious of our effects. I will share their posts and voice my opinions to my own social media followers in hopes that they will stumble onto someone listening and spark change within them.
