I thought I would make a blog post including resources for combating fast fashion and practicing sustainability. I personally find it extremely helpful to follow accounts that promote these things, and I hope you can get some helpful information out of this as well.
The Sustainable Fashion Forum (@thesustainablefashionforum) – This account is great and so helpful while also using humor to explain how detrimental fast fashion is. There is also a podcast by the same account called Crash Course Fashion (you can find it on Spotify) where the host, Brittany Sierra, speaks with different business leaders and CEOs all about fashion that puts people and the environment first.
World Fair Trade Organization (@wfto_fairtrade) – The World Fair Trade Organization is a nonprofit that highlights business models that focus on ethics and sustainability. You can find communities and businesses all around the world that follow a Fair Trade model and are ultimately helping the planet.
Fashion Revolution (@fash_rev) – This is another great account that speaks out about topics like greenwashing and shopping secondhand. Their posts are inspirational and provide ideas on how to ultimately break up with fast fashion for good.
The True Cost – This is a great documentary to watch first and learn from. It highlights the economic impacts from fast fashion as well as giving you an inside look at the labor and poor working conditions that go into it.
RiverBlue – This is a documentary that focuses on water waste and how the fashion industry contributes to water pollution.
SLAY – This documentary focuses on animals and the use of fur and leather in the industry.
Good On You – As mentioned before, this is a great website to look through. They have so many posts about fast fashion and also include information on brands to avoid or shop from.
The Good Trade – This is an amazing website that has editorial pieces from different writers who all focus on self-care and sustainability. There’s an abundance of great, in-depth posts that you can read.
