Ruffle Sweater

Outfit details: Libertie ruffle sweater; Veja sneakers (also love these ones); vintage bag; {previous purchases: Levi’s jeans (part of the Water < Less program); Massimo Dutti blazer (fast fashion retailer but made in Portugal)}

Last Saturday we were in Lyon to meet some of my family. It was a very short trip. We mostly spent our time catching up around a meal and only had the time to visit a few iconic places.

No time for shopping. However, the day before I spotted this pretty ruffle sweater on Instagram from the e-shop & french boutiques, Libertie. As chance would have it, one of their 4 boutiques was in Lyon.

As it was on our way, I stopped by to see if the ruffle jumper was there. I was ecstatic when I saw it was still available BUT there was still one condition for me to buy it: where was it made?(ps: not mentioned on their website)
It now became a habit to check the instruction tag before I buy anything. I was happy to read that this ruffle pullover was made in Italy. It checks at least one sustainable criteria: made in Europe.
As Libertie shop is a retailer, I saw a lot of pretty other garments in the boutique but most of them were made in China. Even if it was the prettiest top ever, the made in China is a no-go for me for many reasons, two of them being, the lack of knowledge regarding employees working conditions and transportation (China to France = more gas emission than Italy to France).

As consumers, we really have the power to decide what we want to buy. We can be the change for a more sustainable future. This attitude not only applies to our fashion choices but also to beauty and household products (fewer/no chemicals in our products, less pollution in our ocean) and more broadly to our consumption lifestyle (eg: stop using disposable plastics that end up in waterways)

I am learning every day new ways to live a more sustainable life, I am fighting every day against my old habits but still keeping in mind that everything has to be taken step by step. We, unfortunately, can’t change in a snap but every little change counts.

What are your actions to live a more sustainable life?
