Retail therapy improves your mood. According to one survey, 62% of customers bought something to make them feel better. When we buy something, our brain releases endorphins and dopamine. For some people, this fleeting pleasure can lead to compulsive spending, as the immediate gratification and need to relive the ‘high’, begins to outweigh self-control, and practical financial concerns. Consuming less entails being conscious of what you consume. It’s about making better selections, with a smaller pool of resources. Sustainable fashion (also known as eco-fashion), is a movement and a process aimed at improving the ecological integrity, and social justice of the fashion economy.
