It’s the third week in June already, is summer nearly over already? We were just getting used to it! To celebrate that summer feeling, we’ve done some research and compiled 4 articles from the past week on the theme of sustainability. Here at Living, we like to read up on the topic from as many sources as we can find, to gain insight into different perspectives and improve our understanding of all things green.
This week, three of the articles centre around sustainable fashion and what it means in the industry nowadays. How useful is ‘physical fashion’ anymore, is it just wasteful? Digital fashion may just be the future of retail. Likewise, what are the most sustainable fabrics on the market and how exactly are they made? Our third recommendation focuses on the practice of eco travelling and how you can make sure your holiday is caring for the planet, with a set of nifty tips that are easy to adopt.
