This article by The Guardian is just gold!
Yesterday, I talked about some great initiatives by fashion brands to tackle the infamous 3 Rs (re-selling, re-wearing and re-using).
Unfortunately, not everyone is on board and end up in cheesy greenwashing campaigns.
It is definitely the case of the combo Kourtney Kardashian + Boohoo.com.
"Welcome to the fashion-influencer-to-landfill pipeline, where greenwashing abounds and nothing of meaning is said."
The greatest subtitle ever, I love it haha
"Kardashian [...] has spent the last few years crafting a fashion-forward and health-obsessed personal brand. [...] Her content-meets-commerce lifestyle platform Poosh [...] offers all-natural hangover cures."
Uhmm... I guess she should start by giving up drinking, rather than giving "all-natural" cures to hangover, lol :)
And finally, the harsh bottom line:
“What’s challenging is figuring out how people can still live in this way where it’s simple, and easy, and fast, and fun, but it doesn’t have a negative impact on people and the planet. Spoiler alert for everyone: you can’t."
Just as simple as that :(
