31 Days Fashion for Good (2016)

October 1st kicks off another year of write 31 days. I went back and fourth for a while trying to figure out how to share my favorite ethically made, environmentally sustainable, or made in the USA brands. I admit I have my favorites and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you over the course of the next 30 days, and why buying less is better for your closet and the world.

Get ready to learn about 16 new ethical brands and what each do to better the world. I’m also going to share some independent articles on the effect of our modern day consumerism to our environment and economies.

Our purchases have power, make sure you are using it wisely.

Kayla & I will also be doing a capsule closet challenge (#wiwcapsulechallenge) over the next 31 days, we will post our looks each day on our Wear It Wednesday Instagram and Facebook and you will see weekly wrap ups on the blog each Wednesday this month; capsules are not my thing and limiting what I can wear for an entire month is so hard for me.

So, be sure you’re following the blog to get the newest posts in your inbox each day or follow posts on social media with the hashtag: #31daysfashionforgood

To give you an overview of how this month will look, I will share a signifier each week, a modern day problem and how companies are combating these problems through a job or skill training and then 4-ish brands.
