6 months no new clothes challenge for ethical green fashion!

Change the world, one outfit at a time

The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. Especially the dyeing and colouring process is facilitated by a mix of harsh chemicals. This chemical cocktail is often dumped in the water, without much consideration about the damage it causes to our planet.

A better world starts with YOU so check the video below & join me for this #6MONTHSNONEWCLOTHES CHALLENGE!
