A New Perspective!
Sometimes we flip our way of thinking with a new perspective and it can be eye-opening. There is no doubt that the fashion industry is harming our planet. To put "fast fashion" into perspective, I'd say that it is quickly producing large amounts of cheap, low quality clothing. This leads to items being discarded easily and an enormous amount of energy use with chemical pollution on top of it. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the fashion industry produces 10% of global carbon dioxide emissions each year and uses an estimated 1.5 trillion liters of water per year.
Consumers have a major role in helping to save our planet. We have a choice on what we purchase, how we purchase and with whom we purchase from. Our featured brand this month is a Hawaiian company that surely knows how to help preserve the Earth. Dylee and Lylee swimwear is made-to-order and handmade with biodegradable Eco-friendly fabric that is also luxurious. The fabric is Okeo-tex certified, meaning it's free from hazardous chemicals and is deemed safe. All of these things have a huge impact on our future. As you wear Dylee and Lylee, you will not only look and feel great, but you will also know it was made in the U.S.A. by a caring small business. Both the one piece and bikini are carefully designed to be reversible, adjustable and provide UV protection for you. YOU matter.
Each time you make a purchase you are casting a vote for what you believe in. Sometimes slow is the way to go. What's a new perspective you have mermaids? We hope to see you at the beach!
