Shop for good this spring with Ethical style.

A great start to living more consciously begins at the way we shop. Buying ethical takes time & consideration so enjoy the journey & take pleasure in slowing down your spending habits.

Before you race online with your credit card on hand & urge to do good in the world, it’s essential you look at what is already hanging in your closet & thoughtfully decide what you truly “need”.

  • What do you have multiples of?
  • What can be recycled or repaired?
  • What are you missing for staples?
  • What pieces can you bring into your wardrobe to compliment the things you already have?

Once you’ve asked yourself the important questions & looked at old favourites with a fresh eye,  you can carry on to shopping cart bliss & wait for the gifts of goods to be delivered to your door.
