Let’s be honest, fashion consumerism won’t be taking a downturn anytime soon. As someone who loves and promotes second-hand shopping, I can also understand why others might not be too keen. With the environmental damage caused by textile consumption and fast fashion on the rise it’s important to keep consumers knowledgeable on alternatives to sustainable fashion beyond thrifting.
The not for profit business model of Magpies & Peacocks is worth talking about because it could be the future of the fashion industry if we properly use the power of our paychecks. If more shoppers supported companies who followed sustainable practices, the demand will increase, and companies and businesses will follow that demand. If we come together and expect more of those whom we give our hard-earned money to I truly believe we can help shape a happier humanity and a healthier planet.
