The Buy Less Project


The mission of The Buy Less Project is to advocate for mindful consumerism by encouraging individuals to make thoughtful, sustainable fashion choices. We aim to reduce the environmental and social impacts of fast fashion by promoting a culture of buying less, buying better, and embracing a more sustainable approach to clothing consumption. Our mission includes putting funds towards cleaning the oceans and rivers through other non-profits. Through education, advocacy, and community engagement, we strive to empower individuals to make informed decisions that benefit both people and the planet. Together, we can create a more sustainable future for fashion and contribute to a healthier planet.
