    This is such a great post, Alexandrina. Honestly, realising how terrible fast fashion is has been the most eye-opening thing for me. I’ve been staying away from buying stuff from H&M for about 2 years now, and it’s been a great decision. I also very recently realised Zara was fast fashion because I always assumed it was expensive and never went in there, so when I found out it was the highest fast fashion polluter made me glad that I’d stayed away.

    And from your last post, greenwashing made me think of this one time a girl I knew really talked Zara up because the paper bags they gave to shoppers were proclaimed to be made of recycled paper. It just proved that people really don’t know about the entire process going on behind the scenes, and that is why this post is so important!

      Thank you! It’s an incredibly eye-opening experience and it can be quite confronting too! High prices sadly don’t always mean they’re environmentally friendly. It’s good that you stayed away!!

      That’s exactly right!! Using paper bags from recycled materials helps shopper believe they’re doing the right thing because people don’t know what’s happening behind the scenes.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed this post!!
