Fashion industry, not romantic. The carbon footprint of the fashion industry? 8% of the total of the planet. Sucks. Why? Well, because with twelve years to go to cut carbon emissions in half, how great will that Dior gown look on you when the planet is covered in the kind of smog that killed the dinosaurs?

Now that’s a good one! A T-rex in a Dior gown! Oo la la!

Think about what you wear, what you eat, what you buy. Think about where it comes from. Think about recycle, resale, reuse. Think about Mercari and Poshmark and Thredup and Rent-a-Runway and RealReal.

Get real. Or get extinct.
