Happy Earth Day! Today, I checked out the art installation for Value Village by Electric Coffin on Alki Beach in West Seattle. The juxtaposition of the clothing landfill against the natural beauty of the beach is such a jarring yet necessary reminder for us to buy less clothing and donate more.
I visited the Electric Coffin art studio in South Seattle earlier in the week as they were putting together the concept, and was able to contribute a piece to the installation.
Over the years, I’ve definitely bought less fast fashion and am becoming more aware of textile waste, especially after watching The True Cost, a documentary tracing the ramifications of clothing on our environment and labor force. Thank you to Value Village for reminding us to #RethinkReuse!
