    I learned about fast fashion two years ago. It was hard to go cold turkey, but now I have eventually moved to thrifting.


    Why show your face? Think of other ways to make a creative video.

    I don’t understand how people just throw clothes away I shop maybe 3/4 times a year I only get one or two pieces sporadically but I never throw them away. It seems crazy to me especially coming from a family where everything is passed around and shared and passed on. We always donate clothes at the end of the year

    Great video

  5. Humzillah says

    Who came here from z’s class?

    Fashion is evil.

  8. Laura Ellen says

    This is such a crazy good video. Thanks so much for taking the time to create this. Very well done.

    I totally understand what you are saying. I come from Bangladesh, where a significant amount of these said clothes are produced. So I get to see the other side of this thing. Fast fashion is in a twisted way is a part of "elite life" here as well and general people feel obligated to "update" their wardrobes every three or four years since early to mid 2000s. However, this is a lose-lose game for the garments workers, the blood and sweat behind all these clothes. They are already oppressed and forced to work under horrific conditions (there are a few exceptions, a few garments industries have developed good work environment and a relatively better pay-scheme), and if the demand of new clothes drop, it's them who are going to lose their cut first. It's like a very rude and unfair pyramid scheme. Have you thought of any solutions to optimize this awful structure? (I know I'm almost a year late, but the question still remains)

  10. Laura Ellen says

    You have great videos, thanks! Totally agree about the bottled water.

  11. Books and Bad Decisions says

    Woah hold up, hello DONATE YOUR CLOTHES PEOPLE :O :(use it as rags omg repurpose pleasee

  12. pandabare23 says

    Check out the cotton trade in Uzbekistan. It's awful. Thumbs up for bringing up human rights violations which are so often overlooked.

  13. Azly Nazeem says

    Your excellent presentation could not be more thought provoking and compelling. Brilliant.

    Another great addition to the recycle option is to donate to thrift stores! I am a huge proponent of charity thrift stores (sans Salvation Army – they suck) because not only do you not waste your good clothes that you don't want anymore, but you also provide low cost clothing options to people who need them. Also, in a lot of cases the proceeds from the stores will go on to do even more development and aid work. My favourite organization with this model is Mennonite Central Committee, you can learn more at mcc.org 🙂 PLUS, it's great to buy second hand clothes instead of new – that's kind of like reduce. Thanks for another great video!

  15. Melissa S says

    Great video, thanks for all the information, great research towards my dissertation!!

  16. Juangc says

    Woa. Just stumbled on your channel. Video production skills are freaking awesome!

  17. Chris Lhamon says

    This video is my new favorite.

  18. Katie Webster says

    Thanks for doing cool stuff on the youtubes! You are really making me think.

  19. Youtopia says

    I was going to make a video on conscious shopping for my channel. Really happy to see that there's other people on YouTube discussing these subjects that are not oh so pleasant, but are really necessary. Once you get to know the chain of production and the costs, fast shopping doesnt seem so cheap…

  20. Chris Gloom says

    DUDE! When did you get all these fancy graphics??

  21. Kary says

    I buy used clothes, when I can find stuff I like. It helps me feel better about new clothes (than the cheap fall-apart after 3 months crap). I also wear my clothes until they fall apart. Thanks for the informative video. 🙂

  22. Patrick Kniesler says

    Steve and Barry's went out of business I don't know how long ago. Still wearing a pair of jeans I bought there. Trying to transition to suspendered trousers for daily wear because they wear out even more slowly.

  23. ItsRadishTime says

    Excellent video, as always. For anyone looking to reduce the amt of clothing they consume, I highly recommend googling Project 333. It's a minimalist wardrobe project that helps you reduce your clothes shopping, with the side benefit of ending up really well-dressed.

  24. Pwallable says

    I try to buy better quality clothes I suppose, and I've been pretty decent on avoiding brands with crummy business. But I can always do better! Also I'll be at vid con! I'd love to give you a high five!

  25. Ali Jardz says

    I love how you're using graphics.

  26. Beci1509 says

    I (despite my mothers best efforts) always go for quality over price. Like yes okay that top might look very similar and cost £20 less, but that top is also going to fall apart after two washes & it fits funny at the top so i won't wear it much.

  27. Daniel Ware says

    Thank you for the video!! It's always really awesome to hear what I can improve on every day. Thankfully most of my clothes are from goodwill and estate/yard sales, but the stuff I do but new has been the cheap stuff that gets replaced. Honestly, thanks for the video:)

  28. Nicholas Cook says

    Wow. I didn't know this was such a huge influence — second biggest polluter? Crazy. I don't technically boycott clothing stores but the only clothing I've bought in the last 3 years or so has been from ComiCon, and the tags claim they were made in the United States, so hopefully that means the workers were treated at least a little better.

  29. KarolaTea says

    ::sees title:: I love you! I see an increasing number of people wearing eco-fair clothes as well as clothes swapping events happening, really gives me hope 😀 Just wish second hand stores had a better rep round here. So that people under 60 would use them, so that people under 60 would use them, so that… uh, you get what I mean. Maybe I should just open a hip & young second hand store ^^ Although there's a site kinda like ebay, but exclusively for used clothes and accessories, which has over a million users, most of them 'young'. Absolutely great video!!!

    The gradual transition to viewing clothes as a consumable rather than a durable good is kinda gross. I've gradually been moving my wardrobe to durable domestically produced stuff, but it's not easy – people don't make work clothes suitable for surviving a physical trade anymore. 60 Years ago guys in the trades wore chambray shirts which wore like iron (the original Blue Collar) but now the chambray shirt is a designer fashion item, too thin and poorly stitched to survive work, and the unofficial uniform of the labor classes is t-shirts – worn for a season and thrown away when they wear out, basically disposable. There are a few bright spots, I'll give a shout out to Pointer brand jeans, made right up the road from me in Bristol out of all domestic materials. It's nice to drive by the building where your jeans were made, and it's not easy to do in the US. We gave up most of our textile industry to people willing to cut more corners.
