1. What one thing did you do better today?
I am hosting an event for my girlfriends called Staro za novo (old for new) where everyone brings clothes that has either not worn in the last season or those impulse purchases you regret straight away but still keep in closet for “just in case”. The goal of the event was to swap those clothes for something “new” from another and what is left at the end of the day will be donated to charity. If anyone knows a person or a family in need of clothes (mostly female), drop me a message.
2. Has doing so made you or someone else feel better?
I think me and all friends present. It sure feels good to get rid of some unnecessary clothes in exchange for something you like and at the same time contribute to a good cause.
3. Has it brought any new realisations?
Not really new as this is the forth time I organised such an event and we always had a great time. Meeting friends, chatting, laughing with an add on of a great cause. I think we are all becoming more aware of the bad side of fast consuming fashion industry and this event seems like a smart, handy and kind move against the over-buying philosophy and more towards a better way to reuse and recycle.
