    Yeah! That was so good. Brilliantly broken down post on the bigger issues with clothing and consumerism. I have been making ethical, eco friendlier clothing since 2005 and its been such a strange battle over the years. I wish people understood more deeply the affect their purchases have. Thanks for such a lovely article. Follow me for my Kickstarter releasing soon as I crowd source to ethically produce some lovely organic cotton clothing.

        I love recycling clothing. All my clothing that I personally wear is from the thrift store or made by me. I tend to design a lot of body wear (leggings etc) so sometimes its nice to have a few newly made options available as things do wear out. I really want to start increasing my line to include underwear and sleepwear, those items that you don't necessarily want to buy used.... :)
