Plastic Free July

How did your plastic July go? For many of us we wonder what the next steps are after we have swapped to reusables (bags and cups) and avoided plastics in supermarkets, which is why this post lists some of our favourite books that help us to explore the way we view our relationship with plastics. Each book takes on a different perspective regarding plastics, whether it’s following a true life story how one woman kicked her plastic habit, the history of plastics and how they came to be or how plastic has been used to empower communities - every read is unique!

Book Recommendations On Fast Fashion

Last week on the blog we posted the sad news that MADE UK, a fashion accessories brand that crafted handcrafted goods with artisans in Kenya, announced that they are closing after 13 years. We asked you guys on Instagram what you think we can do to stop more companies like this from closing and you guys gave some great responses! From embracing cultural and mind set changes regarding our relationship with fashion to educating people on the basics behind green fashion and the fast fashion industry. Based on that we have put together a list of our top recommended reads on the fast fashion industry in case you wanted a book to snuggle up to over the autumn!
