Today’s quote is from Elizabeth Cline, an expert on consumer culture, fast fashion, sustainability, and labor rights in the apparel industry: “Consumers buy twice as much clothing as they did 20 years ago, and most of it ends up as clutter.”
Cline’s book, Over-Dressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion, uncovers the hidden toll of fast fashion on the environment, garment workers, and consumers. In The Conscious Closet: The Revolutionary Guide to Looking Good While Doing Good, she explores how to build a more ethical wardrobe without sacrificing the environment, our morals, or our style.
