We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors—we borrow it from our children.”.**

So yes, as silly as it may sound, sustainability is definitely the “new black”. It is not just fashionable and trendy any more. It is a necessity. Forbs reports about “Lyst analysing 100 million searches on their shopping site over the past 12 months and reporting a 47% increase in shoppers looking for items with terms such as “vegan leather” and “organic cotton”***. Join the growing international community that talks, lives and wears the “new black” –sustainability. We all want to make a change for the better and it is up to us, it is up to our community to initiate it. Only the power of community will make and carry through that change. However, nobody ever said that we cannot have some fun and wear looking and feeling good clothes in the process…..
