Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want.”
― Anna Lappe
Whew. That’s big. In an increasingly globalized and connected world, every purchase we make is also connected, impacting individuals, markets, and systems. As a collection of consumers who care, we have the power to create a more just world.
That kind of power is exciting but may feel overwhelming at times. Where do we even start?
In our digital world, information is readily available. As a result there is a risk of becoming desensitized to the things we are passionate about.
How do we let the information that aligns with our values still change us?
How do we turn our concern into commitment, our advocacy into activism?
These are the questions we ask ourselves often. In fact, this kind of questioning led to creating this social enterprise.
At Wearthy, we’re all about awareness AND action. We seek to be a source of education about topics that deepen our understanding of ethical fashion: human rights, supply chain studies, gender equality, sustainability, and more.
At the same time, we offer ways for our community to participate in global change through ethical purchasing. We keep our marketplace full of wearable goods with a purpose and with a story. Your purchases buck the system of mass-produced fast fashion.
We invite you on this journey with us as we continue to share research, current events, and stories from real people affected by the fashion industry. We will post on these important topics each week on this blog and hope you will not only follow along, but join the conversation. We want to know what you are thinking about and how your purposeful purchasing has changed the way you engage with global issues.
We are honored to be part of your ethical fashion journey.
When you shop with us, you can be confident you are casting a vote for a better world.
