Favorite tip to go #consciousshopping

  • Shop conscientiously, if you must buy something new, support designers which utilize sustainable materials and practice a circular economy.
  • Shop strategically, buy fewer items which have greater longevity.
  • Shop timelessly, seek for clothing items that are versatile and  you can re-utilize for multiple occasions.

Where do you shop
If I really need something I shop for second hand first. The Real Real works great for me or simply the local coolest second hand/vintage stores around. For new clothing, I like to shop at Stella McCartney, Reformation or I also love to collaborate with emerging sustainably conscious designers all over the world.

Creative Director Kalani + Wolf & Director of Operations & Sales of Nomad Tribe

Favorite tip to go #conscious shopping: When thrifting call beforehand to ask what color has an extra 50% off on top of the sale price. Thrift stores want to move as much sold goods versus shipping overseas. So when you arrive, look at the color tag to get the hook-up and don’t become a hoarder thrifting. BUY WHAT YOU NEED!

Where do you shop: Nomad Tribe, Goodwill, Lotus House Thrift, My Girlfriend’s Closet, Clothes Swap Parties, The Green Nomad Bins, Red White & Blue Thrift, The Porverello Thrift, LetGo, OfferUp, Poshmark, GoodKarma, Give Good Works, Revolve Clothing (Tampa), 360 Unlimited (Lakeland),  Tropical Thrift, Fly Boutique
