Shop my look here, I am wearing size XXL in the sweater and 18 in the jeans
I am excited to talk about sustainable clothing and my passion for buying investment pieces that will last. Over the years I have really held myself to only purchasing quality items that I can see myself using for years. Less can really be more when it comes to building a wardrobe. My sweater and jeans are made from organic cotton, which helps to reduce the footprint of pesticides. According to prAna, conventionally grown cotton consumes approximately 25% of the insecticides and more than 10% of the pesticides used in the world. Organic production systems on the other hand, replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. If you are interested in learning more about the importance of sustainable clothing and how as a individual consumer you can make a difference check out this video. prAna offers sustainable, recycled, fair trade certified and hemp items. Not only that, but prAna prioritizes giving back to communities all over the world. I think we can all agree it is time we start investing into companies that invest back into us, which is exactly what prAna stands for.
I challenge you to go into your closet in the next weekend and count up how many worn out leggings you have, sweaters that are pilling, or jeans that just don’t fit right. Fall is a great season to start fresh, and re-invest in those key items for your closet. The second part of this challenge is no to just replaced your 5 pairs of worn out leggings with 5 more pairs that will ware out in a year. Downsize your collection, but invest in items you can wear again and again.
