The idea of shopping sustainably sounds daunting, expensive, and contradicting at times but with the rise in eco-awareness and companies that strive to provide transparency in brands, the idea is perhaps not so scary anymore. This SideTalk, we share our personal habits as we attempt to shop consciously, build a more sustainable wardrobe and ultimately inculcate viable spending habits.
