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.

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?

What Sustainable Fashion Means To Us

As we celebrate Earth Day and Fashion Revolution Week, we ask “What is ethical and sustainable fashion?”, while also asking “Isn’t everyday Earth Day?”

Ginger Threads Collections has made it our mission to be more conscientious about where our clothes and accessories are made, and to know who’s making them. Are they paid a fair wage? Are the materials used harmful for the environment? Sometimes this isn’t easy to find out, especially because the fashion industry hasn’t historically been the most transparent. And honestly, consumers haven’t really cared much in the past either, right?
