Each Friday I want to share with you a quote, some thougths, an image...something that talks to me and inspires me to seek positive change and be a better person everyday.
I hope you have not decided to give up on OUTSIDE THE BOX / on me after all my posts against fast fashion and my continuous call for responsible consumption.
After all, this topic means a lot to me as I have pointed my own finger onto my flaws, mistakes, regrets and frustrations when dealing with what I own, and especially what I WANT to own. Having a tight budget has obliged me to go one step further and attach principles of sustainable consumption not only on my own wardrobe, but also on our household: how we shop for groceries, how we manage our waste, how we play and create with our son, how we appreciate nature and social life around us, etc...
But sharing knowledge without patronizing can be hard, too, and I hope I haven't bored you just yet.
My #FridayInspiration item for today is a nicely-made TED Talk presentation on the life cycle of a t-shirt, from the production of raw materials to produce it until the time it reaches your home. It is well designed, simply but efficiently narrated, so it makes it a great tool for education.
Please share your comments and reactions after watching it: Did you know all the steps involved in the production of a t-shirt? Did the video make you reconsider your own practice and choices?
