Earth Day is coming up, and while every day is “Earth Day” it's certainly nice to have a special day when we reflect on the environment. I've always loved the idea of supporting environmental causes, because, you know it makes sense to take care of the planet.. but it wasn't until this year that the changes in the weather started to really freak me out. I lived in Lower Manhattan when Hurricane Sandy hit… and while having no power for four days is nothing compared to the devastation many of our neighbors experienced, it did make things personal.
I'm not going to get on a soapbox about the environment, I still have difficulties sorting out the trash to go in the appropriate bins (is it recycle or compost?).. and my consumerism certainly needs a lot of work. But we all approach supporting the environment in different ways. Yesterday, Grechen wrote an excellent post about supporting sustainable style, and how we as a community can influence change.
IFB Project #91: What does sustainable style mean to you?
Write a post about sustainable style. Maybe highlight an outfit that embodies sustainability? Whether it be ethically produced clothing, clothing repair projects, vintage/recycled/upcycled fashion, or investing in quality items so you don't have to consume as much. Each person has their own take.
