Joe and Lucy’s #garmentgratitude story

Joe and Lucy’s #garmentgratitude story as told to and reported by Katie. Truthfully I stalked this pair along the footpath mesmerised by Lucy’s well loved hat. She and Joe had the most wonderful outfits on so I had to stop them to ask if they would take part in the #garmentgratitude movement. Lucy said she was very grateful for hand-me-downs.

Amanda’s #garmentgratitude story

~Emma’s story as told to and by Katie. Amanda is a Fashion Teacher at the Sunshine Coast Tafe and has an impeccable eye for detail. She watched a tree full of children (mother duties) while we chatted all things sustainability, fashion, and World Environment Day Festival. Amanda had hosted a Sustainable Fashion show as part of the festival earlier in the day (which I was useless and I didn’t get to see), but she decided this wasn’t enough for her #garmentgratitude eco pledge. Her second action was bringing her eco coffee cup along to the festival and using it...
