Today is the 2-year anniversary of the collapse of Rana Plaza, a building in Bangladesh where thousands of garment makers worked and died. Has anything really changed in two years?
Will wearing our clothes inside out, as Fashion Revolution urges, make any difference?
I really don't know.
I know that my shopping habits have not changed in the last two years--but mainly because I had already changed it about 10 years ago. Read my stuff diet and wardrobe refashion threads to review the evolution of my habits and thinking.
Iris' shirt so much, I decided to make one for myself.
Shams posted a photo of how she uses those small scraps and a light bulb went off in my head. The medium-small scraps to the right were cut into pieces about 2/3 the size of paper towels. I keep a basket of them under both the kitchen and bathroom sinks and use them instead of paper towels for messy cleanups. (I use reusable rags for most of my cleaning jobs.)
As you can see, I do not run a zero-waste home. But things get used and reused and then tossed.
