More brands are building sustainable fashion lines, the latest being Zara, to compliment their fast fashion lines and to cater to the growing need for better more conscious products.

Remember it’s really the thought that counts. We live in a society where we can purchase anything at the drop of a dime. We have so much accessibility! The most important thing I can inspire a person to do is think before they buy. And after a while, it becomes a habit. There is so much power in our everyday spending habits.
