Support artisans, buy handmade
Think about your local farmers market or other local stores. They offer a variety of unique, handmade products you can feel good about buying. Another great online resource is Etsy – a world of vintage and handmade goods from all around the globe. By buying handmade you don’t just support local producers, you’ll also get a product that will last you much longer than a cheaply made, mass produced article of clothing.

Sustainable Fashion is here to stay. It seems that sustainable fashion has become as much about the product itself as the shopper’s attitude toward it. Consumers care more about sustainability and change is happening. Jump on the band wagon and make sustainable fashion a priority next time you feel like your closet needs an upgrade.
