I Am Conflicted About Fast Fashion
I 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.
Yet still I went out and bought these Marimekko x Uniqlo collaborations today. I don’t feel guilty per se, nor am I seeking permission to make capricious clothing choices. I am just trying to be examine the consequences of my purchases.
