Stops Supporting Fast Fashion

Fast fashion is appealing to everyone and is the only thing that some people can afford. No matter you're price range for purchasing clothes, we all have bought from fast fashion companies before. However, the less we buy from them the better off our planet will be. Workers who make clothes are underpaid and underworked. Their work environments are poor quality as well. If you happen to see something that might be found second hand, look into those options!

Finding Unique Pieces

All thrift stores have unique pieces! My favorite place to go is DEPOP! There are thousands of shops to scroll through and they have some awesome clothing pieces! Whatever you are looking for, I'm sure you can find it on DEPOP whether it's vintage or trendy! Plus, you don't even have to leave your house to buy second hand!

More Affordable

http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
