From the Point of View of Luxury Personal Shopper Fiona Wood, here are some easy steps everyone can make towards becoming more conscious and sustainable within their shopping habits
The fashion industry is responsible for 4% of the world's waste each year. That's 92 million tonnes.
As an industry, fast fashion is responsible for astronomical carbon emissions, waste water and landfill waste - second only to oil as the world's largest polluter.
As a member of the Global Planet Authority, I'm heavily focused on ethical production and consumption on a global scale.
We can create and support profitable businesses that respect our world, build trust and embody both creativity and innovation
There are a lot of mindful and responsible brands and businesses out there, it's about putting in the research! There are lots of female businesses that are really cool - lots of black owned female businesses in the UK that we can support, Let’s start here first.Recycle and Re-work your unworn, unloved items and give them new life with businesses like The Reclaimery.
Re working and tailoring pieces to suit your requirements allows you to lay above trends, establish a capsule wardrobe of pieces that really suit your body, shape, personality and lifestyle for every social occasion
Instead of instinctively looking for new items to add to your wardrobe on the high street, why not switch to buying pre-loved and vintage. Luxury Promise is the leading marketplace to buy, sell and swap your used luxury bags and other pre-loved luxury goods. Their mission is to proudly support their global community in the movement towards sustainable luxury.
It is crucial that we all work together to imagine and create a sustainable future within the fashion and retail industries
