What I do aside from fashion:a sustainability story in Japan

I worked in the fashion industry for more than 10 years, and what I can do is: I want to take sustainably and eco-friendly actions through the clothes I love.

But this time, I’d like to share with you three things that I do on a daily basis to help improve the global environment.

What I do aside from fashion:a sustainability story

My own tumbler

I used to love soft drinks so much that I bought canned juice and plastic bottles every day. As a result, my room was full of plastic bottles and I had to take out the garbage more often.

Now, my way of thinking has changed, and I carry my own tumbler with me and hardly drink any juice or soft drinks anymore. Instead, I drink a lot of water and coffee.

Perhaps you can also get a discount on a little in your country too if you bring your own tumbler to the shop. That way, you save money, you don’t produce waste, and you don’t waste time. Isn’t it wonderful?

I always carry my own bottle with me wherever I go. To tell you the truth, I tend to forget my wallet quite easily compared to my own tumbler.

My own container

Food delivery was popular in Japan even before the pandemic, but then competitors entered the market. Especially in Tokyo, more and more people are using these convenient services every day.

This is because people are eating and drinking less at restaurants, and instead, they choose takeout.

At the same time, the number of plastic containers used by restaurants to transport food has increased.

I feel embarrassed for realizing it a bit later. So I started to reduce the amount of waste I consume by bringing my own container when I do takeout as much as possible.

By the way, this is just a personal opinion that I recommend glass container over plastic ones because it doesn’t leave a smell.

Eco bag

I carry my own eco bag when I shop, so I don’t need one from the store.

For example, when I go to the supermarket to buy groceries, I use my own eco bag. This bag is very useful.

Recently, plastic bags in supermarkets have been charged in Japan, so many people are bringing their own eco-bags. Personally, I don’t believe that reducing the number of plastic bags in supermarkets will reduce the amount of garbage, but I do believe that it will help each of us become interested in improving the global environment.

My bag is made from a recycled brand of transportation truck covers.

It called FREITAG. They are unique in that no two designs are the same. The material is also very sturdy, so there is no need to worry about it tearing.

Do you carry your own eco bag when you shop?

 

So, let me know what you think about this. I appreciate you taking the time out to read this blog.
