Clothes magically appear on store shelves. We don’t think about where they came from, how they got there, or who made them.
But we should.
The clothing industry is riddled with abuse, unpaid labor, dangerous conditions, and environmental hazards. Workers often risk their lives to make wages that pay for rent or groceries (not both) so that we can enjoy cheap prices for the latest fashions.
What does this say about our Christian testimony? And what can we do, as ordinary people, to affect change? The Wardrobe Fast explains the problems in the industry and offers solutions for consumers to buy better going forward.
In the middle is a challenge, a wardrobe “fast”: a month of living with just a week’s worth of clothes. It’s eye-opening to see how much we have mashed up against how much we actually need.
The fast will reset your mind, heart, and closet to help you buy more ethically in the future, so that you are able to do your part for your fellow man, the environment, and your own testimony of Christ-like love before a watching world.
