For everyone one who knows me, I have a bit of an addiction to clothes. This is mostly thanks to charity shops and sustainable fashion. However, I do often find myself purchasing fast fashion online and although I either sell these pieces on when done, or donate them, I want to stop the cycle altogether. For everyone who doesn’t know me, I’m a zoology graduate and a secondary school science teacher with a live for everything wild. I want to practice what I preach to my students and make sure my wardrobe is fully sustainable. I have recently started a sustained fashion Instagram with the handle @nikita_.ann_ and I hope that this platform will grow and encourage others.
So here’s the rules: From July 1st, no new clothes purchases can be made. I can allow myself £10 per month to visit local charity shops or save up to use on Depop. I must donate at least 2 pieces of clothing each month too.
Im donating the money from this challenge to WWF as it’s a charity very close to my heart, and supports sustainability to the highest degree! Please donate to help them keep doing amazing things, and to watch me work towards a more sustainable life!
Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of WWF - UK and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
