Eco guilt has caught up with me. I think I live a fairly green life: I recycle, don’t have a car, save as much electricity and water as possible and buy food at my local market. That’s because I do care but also largely cause I don’t have much money and quite simply can’t afford to have a car for example anyways.
However, to my shame, I have never really thought about the eco friendliness of clothes. A long conversation with my Brazilian friend Leti about shoe production in her home town and Marie Claire’s current green issue have got me thinking. Do I really want to endorse cheap cotton full of pesticides, child labour and sweat shops just so I can have another pair of £3 knickers?
There clearly is a way to be fashionable and green:
