Swimwear and Activewear: How to Own Them to Their Fullest Potential

Changing Perspectives When it comes to your favourite pair of swimmers, what do you look for? I enjoy a nice two-piece with high waisted bottoms and a well supporting top. I’ve had the same two bikinis for the last few years. These garments have seen the sandy shores of Western Australia as well as the ever-sunny Brighton seafront. I’ve come to really appreciate the durability of my swimwear, partly because I’ve been able to maintain the garments integrity for all these years. I consciously bought both garments from a small Australian business which sources sustainable fabrics and prioritises longevity within their clothing.

We’re falling into a negative cycle of continually buying and disposing of clothing that is of low quality. Cheaply priced garments are usually indicative of the quality. What you […]

The Fashion Industry Moving Forward: It is Time to #PayUp

Exposing the Injustice You’re probably thinking about how the retail industry at large has coped during these unprecedented times. To put it simply, fast fashion brands have been managing just fine, but at what cost? It is no secret that the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. According to Creative Bloom, the fashion industry not only puts a huge amount of pressure on our planet, but also on the garment workers that are creating our clothes. This leads me to my next PSA if you will, addressing the damages caused by fast fashion brands during the lockdown. The atrocities committed by fast fashion brands […]

Building a Circular Relationship with Our Oceans

The Plastic Problem Most of us have gradually come to realise the significant crises facing our oceans, as human factors have placed the Earth in a new geological age for the first time. As carbon dioxide emissions rise, the oceans increase in acidity. It is also estimated that with each degree of increase in global climate temperatures, the oxygen levels of the sea decrease by as much as 6%. Plastic pollution is causing huge problems, with fishing equipment being a major source of plastic in our oceans. An estimated 640,000 tonnes of fishing lines, pots and traps are lost or abandoned annually. We’ve all been traumatised by horrific tales of […]
