How to spend money and help save the world

How to spend money and help save the world

Sustainability. It's the 'it' word of society today. 

We are slowly beginning to realise how our 'want it now' lifestyles actually impact our world. Fortunately, many of us are also becoming more aware that something needs to change for the sake of our children and for the generations to come.

When it comes to shopping for clothes for ourselves or our kids, what can we do? Firstly, head to your wardrobe and do a little 'Marie Kondo' (If you haven't heard of her, head to google). It's always amazing to rediscover what you forgot you had!

If you are still in need of an outfit, here are some things to consider:

+ Choose designs that you will actually wear, more than once! Make sure that they are comfortable and that you feel confident in wearing it.

+ Look for classic styles in neutral colours so that they don't go out of fashion next season. 

+ Find pieces that you can mix and match and that can be dressed up or down for many different occasions.

+ Try to move away from synthetic fabrics (polyester, nylon, acrylics) as these fabrics are not environmentally friendly both in manufacturing or when washed.

+ Choose to buy from brands who ensure their employees work in ethical conditions.

It's not easy to check everything off this list, and when you do find an item that does, it's likely to come at a small cost to your back pocket. But remember to look at the long term cost. If you purchased a quality item that you love and feel comfortable and confident in, chances are, you will want to wear it all the time. Not only will you look great, but you can also know that you are also doing your little bit for people and the planet.

And even when online learning is done, a dedicated work zone won't go astray for the later years of high school. Here are some things to consider to help you create the best learning space for your teen.
