Join The Revolution
When my team and I were brainstorming ideas for our first blog, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to re-orient our audiences with our mission and our ambitions for wear:change. Birthing a company like wear:change and ensuring that it survives, let alone thrives, is not an easy feat – especially in today’s world of fast fashion, profit chasing, and unethical corporate practices. Much like raising an actual baby, it takes a village. Nevertheless, we are determined to keep going. We are determined to keep driving change for the better within our communities and circles. We are determined to make the world a better place – one cause, one line, and one collaboration at a time.
And so, we invite you to join us. Help us spread awareness about truly worthwhile causes that affect our communities. Buy our products and contribute to the incredible NGOs in our roster. Initiate the difficult conversations that may be a tad uncomfortable but are so critical to our shared humanity. Trust me, we all have it in us to be catalysts for positive change. Join the revolution today – what are you waiting for?
Recently, we posed a question to you on our Instagram – How are you changing the world in your own way? Surprisingly, we didn’t get a lot of responses from our followers. Do we think it’s because our audience is not changing the world? Hell no. We think it’s because of our very human tendency to downplay the good that we do in our everyday lives. So, whether you’re simply too modest to acknowledge your influence or whether you’re still figuring out the actionable steps you can take to start making a difference, we’ve compiled a handy guide to get you going. We call it the ~Young Champions’ Guidebook~, and here are some super simple pointers:
1. WEAR the Change – In your day to day life, strive to make more deliberate purchasing decisions. Whether that means buying from “slow” fashion brands, patronizing BIPOC-owned and operated, rallying behind environmentally sustainable products, or supporting local small businesses, put your money where your mouth is. This is exactly the premise of wear:change too – raising awareness and facilitating conversations through fashion choices. It has an immense impact, even if you may not realize it.
2. CREATE for Change – Be it painting, memes, slam poetry, or even Tiktok, harness your inner creator in a way that sparks meaningful conversation. Using your art for good has undeniable social value, but even so, other benefits include legitimizing your personal brand, carving a unique niche for your content, and even communicating your value to potential collaborators.
3. SPEAK for Change – If the above pointers seem a little difficult to accomplish at the moment, that’s okay. No judgement from our side. What you could do, instead, is simply talk to friends and family about the causes that you feel passionately for. Being a vocal advocate may not seem like the most productive or most beneficial route to making a difference – but you’d be surprised at how many people continue to remain silent.
And that’s it from us for now. If you like what you’ve read, let us know. It would mean the world to us. Even if not, we’d appreciate the feedback so we can switch things up next time around. We’re so excited to be sharing our thoughts with you through this whole new platform. Here’s to joining and furthering the revolution!
TL, DR: We all have it in us to change the world, be it through our purchases, our art, or even simply our words – so join the revolution today!
