How can shopping responsibly help Gender Equality you may ask yourself. The truth is that
women and girls around the world are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change.
Climate-induced humanitarian disasters often worsen existing gender inequalities, leaving women and girls prone to higher rates of violence, malnutrition and more. This is how you can mitigate these impacts.
Some simple ways to get started: · Pick up eco-friendly products and shop second-hand clothes · Avoid buying single-use plastics · Recycle, upcycle or donate your clothes and other goods · Encourage others to do the same: Let your friends know why your new sustainable product beats one from a fast fashion retailer or megastore (That’s so yesterday!).
