I occasionally attend a minimalist meet up in Leeds. A monthly get together where people with a shared interest in minimalism can meet likeminded souls and have a bit of a natter about all things ‘minimalist’. During a recent meet someone mentioned their goal for 2017 was to not buy any clothes throughout the entire year. This, in part, had been motivated by their recent viewing of the documentary ‘The True Cost’. In this post I want to share a little critique of the documentary, raise awareness on the topics covered in it, and hopefully encourage you to be more conscious about your own approach to buying clothes.
