On friday, thanks to lovely Kresna Dara, I met with Dana, drinking the best ginger-lemonade in Kavarna Moderna (yum! very much recomend it ) we talked about life, sustainability and shopping habits.
Dana // The people I hang out with mostly; their habits are driven by the zero-waste thinking. It is just normal to us; buying secondhand, using reusable or zero-waste products such as textile pads, makeup removal cloths, metal razor, shampoo bars… I also bring my own cutlery when going out for picnic! And swapping clothes with my friends is always fun.
I know there is no happy medium in what you do, but I think there still is a lot of people who don’t think about bad environmental causes or other negative sides to wasteful living at all. I don’t think we talk about it enough.
Throwaway fashion is putting increasing pressure on our planet and its people - it’s unsustainable. And did you know it would take 13 years for one person to drink the water needed to make one cotton t-shirt and a pair of jeans? Choosing to shop second hand can help.
Dana is wearing my patchwork sweater made from waste knitwear scraps damaged in factory procces but put together in their loveliest way.
