Fast Fashion - A Parable

The other day, two ladies were browsing our sale rack just outside the store.  I was inside and heard them commenting on how cute the clothes were. When they got to the end of the rack, one of them said, “$99 are you F#@$’ing kidding me?”  They were looking at an ethically made dress from our partner in Portugal (BTW, it’s on sale at 40% off of $99 in the store).  I wanted to run outside and explain to her why our boutique may seem expensive compared to shopping at fast fashion retail stores.  They didn’t bother to come into the shop, and I was left realizing what a long way we have to go as a society in understanding and recognizing what fair labor practices are in the garment industry. Afterall, education is a key piece to our vision and trust me, we are still learning too!

What is Zero Waste Fashion?

When we envisioned what Ginger Threads Collections would be, we knew we had to focus on our values to be successful. We value people and we value the planet. When we started looking for designers to partner with, we had an idea of what we were looking for and what we weren’t. But, along the way, we have been so incredibly humbled by the people we meet and get to call our partners.

From the beginning we 1000% knew fast fashion didn’t align to our values. Sustainable fashion is where our heart is! But, wow there has been so much to learn about sustainable fashion along the way. One of those concepts is zero waste fashion - which is a way of thinking - forcing designers to challenge existing techniques. So, what is zero waste fashion? And why is it even a thing?

Parenting Tips  - How To Start the Conversation About Fast Fashion and Human Trafficking

As the parents of two teenage girls who LOVE to shop (we don’t know where that comes from, promise), and the owners of an eco-conscious/ethical practices boutique, we often have the dilemma of our girls shopping at companies we aren’t huge fans of.

We don’t expect them to love the clothes and jewelry we offer since they are not our demographic.  But, we do want them to be aware of the brands they choose to support, and who makes those clothes.
