The last part of my conversation with Cait Mizzi involves how to be more ethically- and environmentally-mindful when it comes to your wardrobe. The Fashion industry has been known to have some pretty low standards in developing countries, including child labour and substandard working conditions. The materials in clothes have also changed to be less environmentally-friendly.
Cait and I discuss the financial and environmental advantages of second-hand clothing as well as slowly building your wardrobe with more expensive, but ethical and sustainable clothing.

The title of this episode changes as I provide my opinion on the clothes that are available (fast fashion) and the clothes that we should be buying (vintage, 2nd hand clothes made of natural fibers). The whole idea of fast fashion selling cheap clothes ($4 for a t-shirt is just not right!) makes me queezy...it makes me even more queezy that I am attracted to those deals because, well, I'm cheap!
I change the topic during this episode because I figured out that changing from fast fashion to 2nd-hand clothing is a change in behaviour and it needs to be convenient for us in order to change. People will not buy eco-friendly products just because you say it's better for the environment. The product needs to work and be convenient to purchase.
