On Saturday, the queue to get into Leeds Community Clothing Exchange was unusually long.
The immediate positive from this was that people in the queue talked to each other. However, I do hope the queue also means in the longer term that more people are eschewing fast fashion. Beyond this, there are still many other issues where clothing ourselves is concerned, as you can learn about in this article on the matter.
I had already had a notion, for example, that I shouldn’t be buying wool tops from unknown sources, even though they make the process of spinning much quicker and easier. However, now I have read the article, I know I need to tear up the loyalty card and find a different source for fleece.
