Waterstones Says

With both serious repercussions for the environment and global inequality, fast, mass-produced clothing is one of the most pernicious obsessions embraced by the West. In this revelatory guide, Bravo demonstrates how we can all shop more ethically and sustainably and how a passion for fashion doesn’t mean we have to perpetuate a rotten, damaging industry.

You probably know the statistics: global clothing production has roughly doubled in just 15 years, and every year an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing ends up in UK landfill.

Fast fashion is the ultimate toxic relationship. It's bad news for the planet, our brains and our bank balances. We can't go on like this; our shopping habits need an overhaul.

Journalist Lauren Bravo loves clothes more than anything, but she's called time on her affair with fast fashion in search of a slower, saner way of dressing. In this book, she'll help you do the same.

How To Break Up With Fast Fashion will help you to change your mindset, fall back in love with your wardrobe and embrace more sustainable ways of shopping - from the clothes swap to the charity shop. Full of refreshing honesty and realistic advice, Lauren will inspire you to repair, recycle and give your unloved items a new lease of life without sacrificing your style.

Because fashion belongs to everyone, but no outfit should cost us the earth.

'As someone who has been trying to consciously change her shopping habits for years, this book made me realise that in a lot of ways I've been missing the point. However, it never talks down to you, or puts you on any more of guilt trip than most of us are all already on. It's just the facts, pure and simple, with a really clear guide on how we can do better and a relatable narrator to remind you that we're all human. For anyone wanting to change up their fashion ways, this book is invaluable.' - Katherine Ormerod 

'Lauren is an important voice. A fashion lover, committed to reducing landfill and fashion's impact on the environment, she makes her clothes last longer and her purchases count.

“Time to take a good long look at your clothes shopping habits.”

At first glance at this book, I thought it looked interesting but that I wasn't necessarily the target market. I'm not a twenties/thirties girl in the city who pops into the high street chains on her lunch... More
