eco-warrior mode, on!

just kidding. but really, on a serious note, i recently read an article about how 'fast fashion' (ie. your typical high-street retailers like forever 21, h&m, etc.) contributes to an unbelievably large amount of clothes wastage (kids buy cheap clothing & take them for granted, throwing them out whenever they see fit, & so forth), and how the importance of 'sustainable fashion' is gradually but steadily increasing. this made me think, surely we could do more for the environment and at the same time, preserve our sense of style as well as satisfy our personal, sartorial needs?

i was walking to dinner a few hours ago, and started making a mental list of all my eco-friendly (or at least, claimed to be) items. i've my:

#1 recently-purchased hip hop watch from italy; i'm unsure if it's made of biodegradable silicone rubber like o'clock by fullspot though..
#2 red baggu backpack (made of recycled cotton!) which i've been lugging around everywhere, so much that i'm starting to see holes slowly appear in the bottom of my backpack. )':
#3 organic cotton tees from zara (lesser chemicals = lesser pollution, i guess?)

simply put, what i wanna know is: what have you been doing to help save our planet, & what eco-friendly products have you bought or are planning to buy?
