“I care about sustainable fashion because it’s helpful for the environment. Fast fashion is an issue that seems to have become trendy with people buying from brands such as Forever 21 or Shein and posting massive hauls on TikTok or YouTube. People don’t see the issue with this and to keep up with the “trends” they continue to buy from these fast fashion businesses. Having an insane amount of clothes in a landfill is not cute or trendy. It’s bad for the environment, our home.”
