It seems the fashion industry is still on summer holidays or is everyone just busy getting ready for the (too?) many fashion weeks to come? At least I haven’t found many stories from the industry worth sharing, but instead of making the sustainability news post short, I decided to share a few unrelated to fashion sustainability news that caught my attention this past week. I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend with my favourite person, wandering around London, brunching and hopefully we’ll get a chance to enjoy a bit of sunshine. What are you up to this weekend?

Here’s this week’s sustainability news

I have always been struggling a bit with Instagram. I hate how it can make everything look so glamourous and make you forget that everyone has a ‘behind the scene’ life as well. But I also love it because of how I get inspired to try new recipes, find new eco fashion brands, visit new places, meet new people and be part of a community of conscious, eco warriors. Reading this made me want to take a step back – is this really what it’s all about these days?

We seriously need to change our plastic consumption habits ASAP

Good food and not pharmaceuticals is what patients need – why is this not common sense anymore?
