As parents, and as people, we value creating and leaving a clean world for our little ones. We value building a better future. And maybe more selfishly, I value not having to feel guilty about my purchasing decisions.
But it can be daunting (so daunting) to think about buying an ENTIRE wardrobe with this in mind.
Change doesn't have to be all or nothing. It can be small and gradual, and we can still have a big impact (especially en masse!). Inspired by the creation of Meatless Monday in 2003, I challenge you to dress your little ethically on Mondays.
How can you (or your little) dress ethically?
- buy secondhand (if you are on the west end of Toronto, check out I Spy Clothing!!)
- wear hand me downs
- participate in clothing exchanges (search on Facebook for your local group)
- if you buy new, research the brands you buy from!
