Hello Everyone! In my last post from this series, I talked about Feminism and everything you need to know about it. I really loved writing about something important and also relevant to this blog and the world. In today’s post, I wanted to talk about Eco-Friendly Fashion. What it is, what brands are active with it, and a lot of more information that can help you live a more environmentally friendly life more easily. As I was writing this, I realized how uneducated I was on this topic, so I did a lot of research, for this post but mainly for myself. If you wanted to read more on this topic, at the very bottom of this post, there is a work cited section. After you read it, let me know your thoughts in the comments. Enjoy!

And I had some extra fabric so I made matching shorts!
