Hi! I'm Zoe! I'm a UK based blogger and I write my little green blog: Life of a Vegetarian Girl! As Laura and I both have a passion for recycling and reusing, we thought we'd share some of our favourite items on each others blogs.
Over the past few years I have really begun to think of the impact my lifestyle has on the world. I loved throw away fashion, discarded things that were perfectly good and all of my items had to be shiny and brand new. I'm not quite sure what started this shift, but I really started to think about what I was buying and how much I was wasting. I really wasn't happy with what I was doing and wanted to make more of an effort to recycling, reuse and buy pre-loved.
This new ethos in my life has bought me much joy in many ways. I am now a true believer that 'one mans trash is another mans treasure'. I love thrift stores and charity shop, I shop for the majority of my clothes at them. I love rummaging, getting a bargain and wearing items unique to everybody elses. The dress I am wearing on the left is pre-loved and is among many pre-loved dresses which I adore. I love inheriting and buying items which have a history to them, this makes them so much more interesting and one of the things that brings me the greatest joy is knowing that I am having less impact in the world.
