It’s tough to love our clothes and keep wearing them repeatedly when we are faced with the tempting array of trends and new styles on offer in the shops.👗 But before you head out into the shops to find yourself a new number to wear for your date this evening, spare a thought for the impact of fast fashion on the environment. 👙
Fast fashion focuses on speed and low costs in order to deliver frequent new collections inspired by catwalk looks or celebrity styles. 👡 But fashion comes at a cost to the environment, as the pressure to reduce costs and time it takes to get a product from design to shop floor means that environmental corners are more likely to be cut. ❌ Criticisms of fast fashion include its negative environmental impact, water pollution, the use of toxic chemicals and increasing levels of textile waste. 🙅🏼
So, can consumers reduce the environmental cost of fast fashion when out shopping? 👜
Choosing an eco-friendly fabric is complex as there are pros and cons to all fibre types. Garments which are labelled as being made from natural fibres are not necessarily better than synthetic, as fibre choice is only one part of a complex picture. Recycled content is often better, as it reduces the pressure on virgin resources and tackles the growing problem of waste management.
The best thing you can do is to find a second hand store and make some else's throw away your new precious find! Our friends at @secondsvintage have managed to magnify the truth behind the saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure"... and they do it SO WELL! 💛♻Go and check them out for a more environmentally friendly, unique and more stylish shopping experience! 👔

So often we tire ourselves and our planet searching for perceived happiness. But there a certain things in your life that bring you the purest joy and are right in front of you. For me, even after a long day in the office, the love my dog shows each time I walk through the door puts everything into perspective and makes me smile.
Search for the small pleasures in life.
I used to be embarrassed asking to take home leftover food on our plates; the reality is, that there should be no stigma or even choice around preventing food waste (about one third of all food produced for people gets wasted)
We can’t seal up our leftovers in an envelope for the one billion people who survive on not enough food but we can be responsible for our own consumption and behaviours we’re demonstrating to our children
So now, I don’t even ask, I have everything in my possession to just scoop it right up. Also, is it just me or do leftovers always taste better?! Plus, why would anyone not want to eat waffles two days in a row?! 🌈☀️🌿

We love our Agreena wraps so thought we’d make a quick video to show you how they work. They are reusable silicone wraps and replace disposable cling wrap, baking paper and aluminium foil. You can use them to cover bowls, wrap food and you can even bake with them! They are washable and will last a long time. Our oldest ones are a year old and show no signs of deterioration. Each pack has 4 wraps - 2 large and 2 small. $24.95 at F&F. #reusable#waronwaste#loveourplanet#reuse
