These photos by @abccameramatt broke my heart. The #australiafires are crippling. While it’s hard for me to hide my frustration towards big polluting governments, including Australia’s, for not heeding years of warning after pleading warning from the Pacific (and other vulnerable states) regarding the climate crisis, this is not the way a message should ever hit home. 😭😭😭Loss of homes, lives, 500 million animals. It’s all so tragic. I hope Australia is able to recover and rebuild with as much global love as possible.

Shoeless, clueless and tipsy at gorgeous #youmaychrisgrace wedding 🌸🌸🌸 (so beautiful, big love) Walking and talking (a lot) my commitment to reused fashion, dress is a recycled @zimmermann 🧶. We can’t afford to make any new clothes peoples. 🌎🪐🌏 Right now, the fashion industry is responsible for 10 % of annual global carbon emissions. If demographic and lifestyle patterns continue as they are now, global consumption of apparel will rise from 62 million metric tons in 2019 to 102 million tons in 10 years. At this pace, the fashion industry’s greenhouse gas emissions will surge more than 50 % by 2030. Helllllllll no. Love you all a lot for following along. Please sign up to the @reuseolution for 2020. A New Years resolution to only wearing upcycled & recycled. www.reuseolution.org. Thank-you, big hugs x x x #reuseolution
“It takes around 1,800 gallons of water to grow enough cotton to produce just one pair of regular ol’ blue jeans. And that’s just in terms of growing cotton, when you take into account the dye process as well as the machine wash almost 9,982 gallons of water are used.” 🤯Denim. Denim denim denim. I have 4 drawers dedicated to recycled denim. White, grey, blue, washed, worn, ripped denim. Denim denim denim. You can’t get better than denim. Levi’s, Mavi’s, Wranglers. 👖👖👖All in a second hand store near you, waiting patiently, for a road trip, a guitar strap or a night out of white tops and mojitos. 🍾Wear jeans that have the adventure gene. Buy ones with a story. Not a slick shiny store. Sign up to the 2020 #reuseolution by following @reuseolution and clicking on www.reuseolution.org. 🧵🧵🧵 We don’t need new. We need to reuse what we have. We can’t afford to ignore the climate impacts of the fashion industry. We can’t afford to keep being caught in a vortex of wanting more more more. 🤕😷 Save yo money! Save yo planet! Look damn fine 😎 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 xxx Jeans from @missbrownvintagesydney Belt from Value Citaaaay baby.
Mermaids by the sea 🧜🏼♀️🧜🏼♀️. These sister-girls (my gorgeous cousins) are already into the @reuseolution spirit. 🧚🏻♀️ Looking pretty in aqua, did you KNOW that often the dye from fashion factories, pollute rivers so STRONGLY, that villages downstream know what colours are going to make up the next season? Just by looking at the water! 🏞🏞🏞 Making more of the same, just to perpetuate landfill, pollutants & climate change, is cray cray. By definition I’m pretty sure. Let’s get our clothes in a cycle, just like our trends! The ideas are already circular, so let’s just include more and more material in that round and round. Jump on www.reuseolution.org to sign up for ONE YEAR of recycled & upcycled ONLY. 🙌🏽Send the message to brands that we want to be using more old to create new. If it already exists, let’s use it, not bury it. 👗Pre-loved clothes here by @theprojectsfiji & angel’s own recycled goods 💙💚🤍💙💚🤍 @chrissiewb @sophiedace #REUSEOLUTION
Back in the islands 🌴 like the bush bunnies we are 🌈🤪Got my cute child accessory (although I’ve barely seen either of them today thanks to the @fijibeachouse staff 💋) and I’m wearing these shorts for the second time this week (because that’s actually cool🤙🏽). Got the @reuseolution upcycled life going, with my secondhand tee-shirt dress that I cut into an actual tee-shirt (whoddathunk it!) about 3 years ago. Upcycling can be anything from mending, to altering, to repurposing material to have a new life. Some brands upcycle plastic bottles into Lycra or into new garments. Some brands collect their old collections and turn them into new collections. All forms of cycling, whether it’s re or up or bi ... is FAB! (I personally don’t like bicycling because I am very lazy but I hear other people enjoy it, go you.) Instead I’ll just peddle this ... JOIN THE @reuseolution !!!! 🌈🌈🌈 It’s just ONE YEAR, of recycled or upcycled attire. It will be FUN! Go to www.reuseolution.org ... tag #reuseolution on piccies and get involved peeps 🥰🥰🥰🥰
