On this dark day named Black Friday never a truer word spoken by the Dame.
“Buy less, choose well; that’s the maxim. Quality not quantity. That’s the most environmentally friendly thing you can do.” ~ Vivienne Westwood
Leash training these two today in upper park. Johnny and Mae ran with us while they took the rock crawler off and over everything! No black Friday shopping for us, quality time instead. Crazy how yesterday we were thankful and grateful for all our blessings and humbled by simplicity yet today we are overtaken by commercialism.
Soooooo proud of @justesparza for making this fabulous dress out of the scraps we’ve collected from a local garment manufacturer.
It’s one thing to buy a roll of fabric and make your garment. But it takes that extra dose of magic to envision a pile of scraps turning into a fabulous dress.
Bravo Jonathan! ❤️🙌🙏🎉
To kick off the release of our new look website www.urbannew.com.au we’re doing mini Insta “what is ethical fashion” options
It doesn’t matter who we are, each of us can change the world! There are so many ethical shopping options you can consciously choose to adopt. .
Option 2 // value in longevity of fashion! Shit this is deep and can mean different things to different people! - buy fashion then OWN it // don’t impulse buy then forget about it after 1 wear // important to think about considering the huge hype of Black Friday + super Saturday + cyber Monday. Buy something you know you’ll wear every week, your friends will constantly be borrowing and most important is made with quality in mind so it will withstand all the love you give it! 💕 . ♻️ Recycled cotton//war on waste// we love how so many ethical fashion brands are sourcing old or scrap fabric and rethreading it and making something new again! Both @mudjeans and @kuyichipuregoods are using recycled cotton blends in many of their denim. My favourite dress this summer by @backbeatrags in made with ♻️ cotton. Reusing old fabrics will reduce the strain landfill has on the environment as well as the constant demand/pressure of growing new cotton. To be all “jargony” this is part of what is called considering the “lifecycle” of a product keeping something out of the bin/landfill and learning about the “circular economy” .
If you wanna learn a little bit more and real simply... @mudjeans has a really easy explanation on their website. .
And this little Iittle Insta profile @designforlongevity is fantastic!! Their blog is a must for anyone who seriously wants to understand the opposite of fast fashion from the perspective of designers and retailers and what they can offer you the consumer of ethical and sustainable fashion
Lyckades ha av ett nästan färdigt skaft. Men det var nog bra, för dels insåg jag att björken jag har är för klen men även att vissa saker ska man hålla enkla. Som det här blivande skaftet i Björkvril och renhorn.

Took some inspiration from @daniellelaporte just be mindful of the stuff in our lives. Sure we need and desire "things " in our lives, but A cluttered house and mind stifles you well-being, your health, and your creativity. Things usually give you temporary happiness, true happiness is an inside job, it's a choice, it's learning how to think, and be and do! ❤️Give experiences, give opportunity, give hope and health. ❤️Give yourself a gift, what do you really want? A bigger tv? a new sweater? Jewelry? ❤️Maybe you would love the negative nellies in your head to stop sabotaging your dreams, your health, your desire to change your life? Is it time to let go of the stuff, the shame, the unworthiness and the stories that hold you back? I am so grateful I did and I want that "happiness" for you to. #letitgo#upcycle#recycle#giveexperiencesnotthings#givethegiftofhealth#givehope#givewellness#youareworthy#changeyourlife#changeyourstory
