The Teddy Coat:
As you may know, I’m giving myself an 80/20 rule for buying new traditional vs sustainable or secondhand. Since the Teddy coat is super trendy right now and would be pretty impossible to thrift and since they’re also made of polyester, I kind of wrote it off as a trend I wouldn’t get to play with.
THEN, I saw this one from #reformation and I was like- “Take my money” they say it’s made from deadstock fabric which is essentially rescued from going directly into the trash, but every time I wear it I see it shedding microplastics (fibers) all over the world… so now I feel a little conflicted.
How would you feel about it? Is it better to put it to use since the fabric was already made, or should I not have bought it at all since it is shedding? Tell me what you think- I’m seriously torn. I feel like I’m trying to do the right thing and it’s always not good enough.
Thanks for reading!
