I am a British student based in London and Bristol
I am not:
A professional skin expert, makeup artist, nutritionist, pro fashion person.
I am also not a perfect human being. I try to buy from ‘cruelty free’ beauty companies, and I try not to buy fast fashion. But I am no means perfect – I don’t think I need to elaborate on this
Why am I starting this blog?
I want to become a better consumer, and I care about ethics in all industries. I also love trying out new product, clothes, and all sorts
My personal stance on buying beauty products is that I avoid companies which test on animals. I will sometimes buy from companies with parent companies who test but do not test themselves.
My stance on fashion is more complicated; I really try to buy all my clothes secondhand or new from brands which do not exploit humans for profit. I do understand that this is more difficult with our modern mindset.
My stance on purchasing books is that I buy through book shops. NOT AMAZON. Amazon is damaging the book industry in many ways. I would rather buy my books from someone who pays tax
This all being said, a company that does not test on animals but has a few dodgy scandals under their belt will not have my support. I try and stay aware of this at all times. I hope at the end of this I have made it clear that ethical consumption is not black and white, and that most of us are just trying to do our best.
