In The Elevator: From Buying to Collecting.
Most people take the stairs in life, why not take The Elevator instead? This letter is for ambitious and entrepreneurially minded people who are interested in both business and spiritual growth. Every week I shamelessly promote people and products that elevate you personally and professionally. So look out for products, courses, coaches, retreats and more.
Lately, I’ve been tuning in more to sustainable fashion and the idea of shifting our consumption patterns. I’m extremely excited about innovation in the CPG market towards sustainability and encouraged by the new businesses and products I’m seeing pop up to help us make this shift. I thought I would share a few.
1. Fashion Meets Community
I love the way that this fashion brand is working in capsule collections, interchangeable garments, and then connecting what you wear to what online communities you are in by using a patch system and partnering up with communities like Nouns or Seed Club.
Early Majority is a clothing company that aims to bring sustainable and ethical fashion to the masses. They focus on using eco-friendly materials and ethical production processes to create stylish and comfortable clothing. Their mission is to make sustainable fashion accessible and affordable for everyone.
2. Personal styling meets sustainability
I love this styling service (which I found on Tiktok) that helps you discover how to better style the clothing you do own, rather than looking to add to your wardrobe. Sam and her team have a great process for helping you make the most of your closet.
A one-on-one online styling service, revealing the power of your style and wardrobe.
3. A digital space to enjoy your possessions
I’ve been playing around with taking images of my possessions in my Apple notes app and then I came across Objet. We’re only going to see more digital-physical apps like this in the future where everything digital is cataloged for future reference. This looks like it’s still new but might be a good start for you to begin collecting instead of shopping.
Objet is a new way to enjoy your possessions and experience shopping. Effortlessly create, edit, and organize a catalog of your most significant objects, alongside their stories.
4. The World Is On Fire But We’re Still Buying Shoes
I was recommended this book on the subject of sustainable fashion. If you want a primer on the subject this is a simple Ebook you can pick up.
For people who care about what they wear and what's going on in the world — and how conflicted that makes them feel. This book is a great intro to consumerism for those interested in fashion or just shopping in general.
