This whole ’sustainable’ thing gradually seeps into the rest of your life. Once you delve into one area, you can’t seem to stop.

At a certain point, writing about what we deem as “sustainable” labels becomes difficult. Here I am, passing judgement on a brand, a dress, a pair of shoes, from the chair at my dining room table.
