My agency reached out to me about a new line of clothing they wanted to help promote. Tact & Stone is on a mission to provide sustainable and fashionable wardrobe staples. I’m not as familiar with sustainability as I should be. This collaboration wasn’t mandatory, but I took it as an opportunity to learn more about sustainable fashion and start a conversation.

We’re all familiar with climate change. Each year we see more of its effects, but I don’t do enough to contribute to a solution. This post isn’t about condemning anyone or even encouraging you to change your habits. The goal is to start a conversation and plant a seed. Things aren’t going to change overnight, but it’s important for us all to be aware of the effects of our choices.
