Welcome to Hippie and Heart!
Hippie and Heart was born out of my frustration with the fashion industry. Because I studied fashion in college, I learned about the devastating affects the industry has on its employees and the environment. But, many people have no idea there are any issues. So, I highly suggest you watch True Cost. It’s a documentary film, which is available on Netflix, that explains the current state of the industry. Hint: It ain’t good.
The people who make our clothes deserve healthy and safe work conditions, a living wage, and to be treated with dignity. Sadly, the industry treats its workers poorly. On top of that, the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry, right behind oil. Yuck!
As a consumer, I realized that I could help change the industry through my purchases- power through the dollar, baby!
So, if you want your closet to rack up some seriously cute thoughtfully made clothes, then look no further than Hippie and Heart. Not only do I feature stylish clothes, but I even school you on how they’re thoughtfully made.
With a lot of heart,
