Shopping today is easier than ever. With a plethora of online marketplaces, in-app shopping and a tap-and-go mentality, it’s easy to shop without ever stopping to think about it.
But alongside a growing ease of shopping comes a dark side as well. While we continue to churn out garments season after season, buying throwaway products that were made to last for no more than a few months at a time, the amount of waste we’re creating is also growing rapidly.
While this undeniably sounds terrifying, there are things we can do to reduce the amount of waste we’re creating from our consumer demands. And the funny thing is, it starts from the beginning: With shopping.
The growing online marketplace isn’t all bad. In fact, it allows for easier access to high-quality products made in an ethical way. By shopping on these sites and supporting ethical, sustainable brands, we can begin to influence the way things are made. Better quality + sustainable practises = better, long-lasting products that leave a smaller impact on our planet.
You might be thinking that all of this sounds great, but are asking yourself where to begin. The good news is, there’s one site that’s doing the hard part for you. If you’re ready to be introduced to a few new vegan and ethical fashion brands, The V Spot is the place to go.
The site even sells beauty and lifestyle products as well, so a total overhaul of your everyday products should be pretty easy.
