Book Review

New Book Spotlight – Fashion Conscious by Sarah Klymkiw and Kim Hankinson

Today I am showing casing a new book which is coming out on 20 August. Fashion Conscious is a book I wish I could have read when I was younger. It would have been so eye-opening and helpful. With such informative messages and colorful illustrations, it is such a positive and effective way for young people to learn how to love their clothes and reuse / redesign what you already have and discover how to choose wisely when you do buy something new.

It is such a fantastic book. I will for sure share this with my younger cousins for this. Below are some info for the book, make sure you check it out!

Synopsis:

Empowering the Greta Thunberg generation to change fast fashion

With the Covid-19 global lockdown and a call to action from David Attenborough in Blue Planet II making everyone re-evaluate the relationship they have with the natural world, it has never been so important to consider the impact our clothing choices have on the planet. Shake up the fashion world by taking action as conscious consumers and active citizens. We have the power to collectively change the world with a change of clothes!

In the UK alone, over a million tonnes of clothes are thrown away each year and around £140 million worth of clothes head to landfill. Learn how to love your clothes by reusing, swapping and mending what you already have and discover how to choose wisely when you do buy something new.

This practical, positive and empowering book will open eyes to the impact our clothing choices have on people and the planet and empower children to demand answers to questions and take action.
