IT WILL CHANGE YOU...

IT WILL CHANGE YOU...

IT’S SUMMER and us girls are enjoying time in the sun. We love that everyone slows down a bit in the summer months when it comes to impulse shopping. There are better things to do to fill your time with so many outdoor activities. It's a time to be healthy, happy & free.

After a day of pampering yourself, come home and set a positive intension, maybe learn something new or get inspired to make that change you've been wanting to.

Consider a documentary that will inspire you & make you take a second look at your closet and fashion accessories. Are you shopping ethically? I bet you will once you've jumped into knowing more about the fast fashion industry.

Here’s are a few documentaries that touched us deeply & made an impact on us. We all can make a difference in the Ethical Fashion Movement. It's a group effort & it all begins with knowledge. Learn some facts, get inspired, and most importantly make an informed decision when you make your next purchase.

I hope you enjoy these as much as we did.

#1  |THE TRUE COST

So many of us may have seen this one by now as it’s probably the most popular, but maybe consider re-watching it. It brings to life poignant facts about the fashion industry that we benefit from learning, retaining, and working to be a part of the change needed. Like the small fact that fashion is the 2nd largest polluter of the planet, next to the oil industry? Yikes! Or even better, that it’s the LARGEST labored industry on the planet which means standing up for change in our industry REALLY DOES affect people AND planet.

#2 | THE NEXT BLACK

A short documentary on the future of fashion exploring various sides of the industry and exploring ways they are heading in the future. Get inspired, get creative, go be the change!

#3  | THREAD

Amber Valetta digs into the implications of fast fashion and it’s social and environmental impact. Gain awareness, know the facts and believe in our future.

#4 | SWEATSHOP: DEAD CHEAP FASHION

Grab some courage & a tissue box for this one. This team sends 3 young Norwegian fashion bloggers into the heart of Cambodia’s factory life. Young women with no experience working in fashion or an awareness of what is a respectful job outside of the white collar world are extremely emotional when faced with the reality. The film highlights important issues that need to be addressed like the livelihood the factory job provides (or doesn’t provide) for it’s workers, however we feel it’s important to note that not all factory jobs are bad, just like we would assume a factory job here in America would be, and having spent ample time in multiple developing countries ourselves we can say there are many times you feel uncomfortable in that culture but it doesn’t give us the right to judge them. It’s one of the hardest soul checks you get when traveling in these areas.
