There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes hunger and unhappiness.
The idea behind writing this post is this topic is close to my heart. So, I want to start sharing brands that are doing their bit to help the fashion industry become socially and environmentally conscious. And, I am glad to share with you the steps Zara is making to be more socially and environmentally conscious.
ZARA’S JOIN LIFE COLLECTION
Zara’s Join Life collection is one sustainable collection that seems to be doing a bit to reduce the impact of their products on the environment. This collection is Zara’s sustainably-friendly collection. The result? They use sustainable and recycled materials to make the items in this collection. They work with projects that help support communities and have a recycling programme where you can donate your old clothes. This is a big step in the right direction considering the scale of this company that Zara belongs to.
It isn’t enough just looking for the quality in the products we buy, we must ensure that there is quality in the lives of the people who make them. Orsola De Castro
Zara is a huge company and have made a big step in the right direction. I get that this may not be enough considering the impact the global fashion industry has had and continues to have on the planet. Before we can a global fashion industry that is fully sustainable and affordable products, we need to adopt these small steps. Because I believe that every little helps!!
Enough said for now! I am presenting the denim I bought from the Zara Join the Life collection along with a top and loves from the collection. This collection is really popping for this summer and I currently have a few items on my wish-list and I cannot wait to buy some more from this collection and other sustainable brands and or collections.
If you don’t want to be bugged down doing all the research as to whether your favourites brands are sustainable or ethical, There is an app which we discovered recently which should help you find out the brands that are doing better by the people who make the products, their impact on the planet and animals. Funnily enough, the app is called Good on You. Happy shopping!
