As it happened to me in many other issues, I started to read and get informed about a specific topic, in this case about the fashion industry.
I realized it has an unethical production model that I completely reject. Yet I never dared to move a step forward and change the way I consume. I guess I did not because of convenience, lack of knowledge or both.
So, since a friend of mine was organizing a swap, I decided to volunteer. It seemed an interesting experience for me to know different alternatives to the ones we know.
My idea about the swap totally changed. Before volunteering, I thought many people used swaps as an excuse to get rid of very worn-out clothes. This happens in some swaps, not in all of them.
