I Am Conflicted About Fast Fashion

CF2A1EF1-7F21-4D08-AC33-C6F4CADC37EFI am aware of the negative impact fast fashion has on society. I know that landfills are choking with throwaway garments. I recognize that in order to make such inexpensive clothing, there are workers in sweatshops who are likely exploited. And personally, even if these outfits are cheap, I still can’t really afford to buy so many things.
