Zara Goes Ethical…

Well, I think the fashion industry has heard us loud and clear! Zara has made an ethical/ sustainable collection although, they were vague on the details, this is a step up for the mainstream fashion industry!  When I saw Zara launched an ethical clothing line my first thought was, ” Is Zara just trying to make money off of the ethical trend? ” To answer my question, I would say, “Yes, they are.” We can only applaud this because Zara may be starting a trend throughout the industry which will not only help spread our ethical message but, it will also, result in helping our planet. When you think about “earth” it is larger concept that some us may not be able to grasp. But, if you look at it as your backyard it is possible to conceive helping that little part of the planet. Now, think about others’ backyards all around the country, some of which are non existent because of  excess waste, and pollution. Imagine all of these things right in your backyard; your beautifully landscaped backyard no longer exist and, you helped in the destruction of not only your backyard but, many others. Now go to your sink and, pour yourself a glass of water this is a luxury that man countries do not have. Why is it that they can’t drink their water? The fast fashion industry that we made happen is one of the largest contributors. By using dyes that are filled with chemicals we are not only being extremely wasteful but, dumping the excess dyes into the water. A large population of the world turns a blind eye to all of the horrible methods of how our clothing is made. Some are unaware of the factories/water problem and, I feel it is all of our responsibilities to take action. By expressing the need for an ethical lifestyle we move companies like Zara, toward an ethical approach to their companies. Turning many companies into ethical companies should be one the many goals we set out accomplish on our journey to helping ours’ and others’ backyards.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Supporting ethical & sustainable is so important to enhance the fashion industry and, to show them that this is the way we want to head towards. Our world needs our help if we are planning on having feature fashion, travel lovers such as ourselves who would enjoy what we call home. I have chatted about the problem with dying fabric and, the decrease in the drinkable water on our planet. Three quarters of the earth’s surface is water, while about .37% is drinkable, that is less then 1%. The fashion industry is contributing in the decline of drinkable water and, by supporting ethical & sustainable fashion companies we are helping the planet. We are also, helping better the workers lives who are treated fairly when it les sublimes 2comes to ethical fashion companies. By wearing clothing that is sustainable, you will be wear it for a number of years which would normally be called “wardrobe staples.” Now, every piece in your wardrobe and, potential capsule wardrobe will be essential and last for years. Buying fast fashion needs to be put to a stop and, replaced by clothing you will wear for five to ten years to come. When you are done with your piece of clothing, gift it to a friend, someone in need, or resell it on places like Poshmark for a couple extra bucks to re-invest in your capsule wardrobe.

By supporting Les sublimes you will be supporting an education project they have going on in Kenya.
