I am no different to anyone else in the sense that I love hanging around in my trackies and hoodies at home, but there is no chance that you would ever see me leave the house wearing them. I know leather pants might not be as comfy but honestly, they are still pretty good. My leather jogger pants speak ultimate laid back comfort with the stylish factor as well. I’ve been obsessed with my leather jogger pants for so long now and they are not leaving my wardrobe anytime soon.
Leather is something I can try and say goodbye to but during the winter, I find myself wearing it every single day. Not only does it keep me extra warm and allows my skin to breathe, it will actually last in my wardrobe for a while. I recently watched a documentary called ‘The True Cost’ about fast fashion and how it is ruining the planet. I was fascinated how little I knew about the Fashion market being the second bigger killer of earth after oil mining. You don’t think about the clothes you wear and the effect they have on the environment.
All those $5 t-shirts and $15 jeans are ruining Earth one day at a time. Watching this documentary was a little bit of a reality check – as they always are!
I’m going to stick by the thoughts I have always had with fashion and stick to good quality items that will last in my wardrobe.
I don’t want to be wearing something a couple of times and then just throwing it out the next week! I want items that will last for years and years and not end up in the landfill emitting awful toxins into the atmosphere. I will always appreciate leather pieces and fashion, there’s no chance that that will change anytime soon. I can’t replace my leather with vegan leather as the polyurethane (which is really just plastic) is not good to wear on your body nor for the atmosphere. However, I will change my approach by putting more thought into the items I buy and how long they will actually last. The less I throw out, the less chemicals that will be emitted into the atmosphere when my clothing eventually reaches the tip. It’s the little things you do that count.
How does this make you feel? Who would have thought that your clothes had such a big impact on our Earth?
