  • I'm so happy to learn that my cheap, thrifting, hoarding ass is doing a small part in helping the environment.

  • Bottom line: Fast Fashion didn’t Kill Legacy Brands. They killed themselves with those ridiculous prices making them affordable for only a fraction of the population. I got NO sympathy for them.

  • Well, we gotta ship all that cotton and polyester to asia. They turn it into clothes. Then ship it to america. Then americans donate it to the second hand market. Then americans wear them, or donate them to africa. Or just dump it in a landfill. It keeps more retailers or marketers or designers in business

  • I’m an older millennial who does not live in a 1st world country, so I’ve naturally been doing most of the tips mentioned all my adult life anyways. My question is, when they say “just buying an used item will reduce X amount of xyz...” what happens to the unpurchased item in the store? Because the way I’m thinking of it, if Zara made 100 (just go with it) pants using all those methods that is killing the environment, me not buying it doesn’t mean it didn’t already ruin the environment?

  • My takeaway was 'Fast Fashion' is slang for cheaply made designer knock offs copying original designs they steal after seeing what's 'Hot' following academy award shows-(worn by celebs)..they're made literally overnight (fast) BUT they are made from synthetics=require ungodly amts of water + tons of PETROLEUM but NEVER break down so they end up in landfills, oceans.. They're killing the environment & therefore, us + all LIFE forms!! Sickening, indeed...

  • The Patriot Act is excellent in Nuances... Minhaj is giving John Oliver a run for the money... I watch both.. First I thought, by judgement, the Patriot Act was the "knock off" of last week tonight... because I thought, well Minhaj is researching ever tier of every industry- just as Oliver's shows did, except He's standing up, he's just got amazing graphics and he's younger and more attractive... but he can't beat John Oliver... but, well... mmmmm I dunno.... lol. I like the joke comparing clothing to Billie Eilish, "I can't believe a kid produced that!" Which is funny and depressing... Bangladeshi children put in 16 hour days making your clothes!!

  • The most iconic piece of clothes I have ever had was a sweater bought as an emergency item in a thrift store. It was quite gender neutral so it was worn by my 3 nephews and niece, before turning it into a sweater for our DOG. After that, it became a rag to clean the floor. Anyway, I rarely buy something new, mostly I get it from thrift stores and nowadays I am making my own stuff. After working in fast fashion, I am done with their exploitative policies

  • I mean I've heard people buy tons of clothes but never thought ut was this much. I buy barely 1 shirt every year, The rest is just the oversized shirts I ordered from our school's free shirts. But that can also be because most of our countrymen or the older ones at least are judgemental when someone wears something stylish.

I'm still wearing some of my clothes from 4th grade ( I'm 19 btw) and they're still in good condition. So save your clothes people.
