going green – Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week

No matter what you think the world’s biggest issues are, climate change is on everyone’s radar these days. Especially in the fashion industry. It’s the second dirtiest industry in the world, following right after oil. Due to speedy (mass) production and over consumption, the fashion industry has landed itself on an environmentally damaging path, much different than 100 years ago. And I’m glad that this is slowly changing. Even companies such as H&M, Nike, Adidas and Zara who are known for creating fast fashion collections around the world are even working to develop a sustainable shift. Although there is a long way to go, the industry is at least on the right path towards creating a greener future and admit that something needs to change, and fast. Next to fact that companies are making an effort, you, as a consumer, can do too! Because clothing is something that everyone needs and uses, it makes it extremely accessible way for the average person to affect climate change.

You have the option to choose and as a store I want to help you make a good decision. Therefor I’m joining the Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week this year, to show and let you discover that there are beautiful brands and items which are focussing on using sustainable materials, packaging and work with certified factories.  

This event will take place between 4 and 11 oktober. See you in store!
