New pullover from Wunderwerk, a German sustainable brand. It’s made from bio-cotton and bio-wool, both certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) which guarantees that the production happens in an environmental-friendly and socially responsible way. Besides that, products have to be made at least of 70% organic fabrics. .
The difference between bio-cotton and normal cotton is the use of chemicals in the production process. 1 shirt of normal cotton needs up to 150 grams of chemicals. These chemicals can cause health problems for the farmers and cause a threat for the environment.
Last week I was in the H&M for the first time in ages. Since I started my conscious lifestyle I didn't wanted to shop at big fast fashion brands anymore. But when I was in the H&M, a strange feeling came over me. I felt the urge to make impulse purchases. Those fashion items in combination with low prices made me want to shop 'till I drop. But I didn't. I could resist that urge. I stay strong to my own values. The fast fashion industry needs to stop. Are you with me?
