We’re in full swing of Earth Month now, and in honor of the big day next week, we’re rolling something big out…
What the H is the #Thrifty50 Pledge?! Well, if you’re down - which I hope you are - I’m asking you to join me in pledging to get dressed every day, with 50% of the items you have on, being SUSTAINABLE!!! (That means shoes, jewelry, bags, it all counts!)
We’ve been talking all month about how our small purchases can make a big impact, and how shopping sustainable is totally doable! From what we eat to what wear and from how we get clothes to how we get rid of them -- we all can make changes each day to help save our planet.
And it needs it.
According to Greenpeace, global clothing production doubled from 2000 to 2014. The average person buys 60 percent more items of clothing every year and keeps them for about half as long as 15 years ago, generating a huge amount of waste. So let's help change that.
I know, more than anyone, how hard it is to say ‘NO’ to that new thing we think we so desperately need. Srly, I get it, and it's tough. But, we don’t have to never purchase new again (ie that Zara season clearance sale that gets us all), but we can cut back, a lot. I’m 100% in on this with you, so let’s do the damn thing and #Thirfty50 it up 💋
