How Buying Quality Saves Cash and the Planet

"my approach to clothing ... [is] to try to buy once and buy well [which] is still common in many European countries. It's an old fashioned American way of thinking, but still common elsewhere in the world. ...simply trying to consume and create as little waste as possible, which other parts of the world are much better at than we are in the west [today]." - Kristen Fanarakis
