It’s February… that means Valentine’s Day and all the roses, chocolate and lingerie ads that come with it! I love, love. I’ve never been one to hate on Valentine’s Day, but this year, it kind of irked me. Not Valentine’s day itself, but all the ads and marketing! It’s like everywhere I look here’s an ad for bras and panties or chocolates or roses; each company competing with the next for the consumer. I get it, it’s how the world works, every company wants you to buy their stuff. But you know what they don’t tell you… ok anyone who reads my blog knows the answer to that question. They don’t tell you how their product is produced and the impacts that came with it.
I’m not going to name names, but lots of the major lingerie/under garment companies have major dirt on their hands. Just think about it, how is 5 for $25 a good deal for the people who make the panties? See, I didn’t name names 😉 I know it hurts, that deal is so so good, but we have to at least attempt to be conscious consumers if we want change. Fast fashion is taking over and no one focuses on how well made their undies are, they just want something cute and cheap. As a broke college student, I can sympathize with that, but I still think we can do better.
Even if you can’t afford ethical, sustainable fashion all the time,( I know I can’t) you can try to buy a few ethical pieces here and there. And what better pieces to choose ethically than the pieces you wear closest to your body…. lingerie!
