We’ve finally had a cold spell here in the UK and boy, was it chilly! I spent most of Saturday on the sofa in front of the fire with Poppy. Sadly, this can’t continue and there have a been a few times recently where I’ve thought I could really do with a warm and snuggly coat. (Plus, I love buying coats! I could quite happily have one for every day of the week!). A chilly bus duty and late end to Parents Evening have left me shivering this week, not to mention walking Poppy as winter draws near. Just over a week or so ago, Pretty Good posted a picture of the HoodLamb parka. Pretty Good share vegan, ethical and sustainable goods, so I knew that I would be able to wear it. Not only that, but HoodLamb use hemp, which is one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics we’ve got. Perfect for sustainable fashion.
I particularly like the fact that it’s lined with fake fur, made with recycled PET, or recycled plastic bottles to you and I. I think this is a fantastic way of reusing those horrible plastic bottles. I also like the fact that it’s got plenty of pockets, good for carrying dog walking related paraphernalia around during those dark walks. Fashion doesn’t need to be fast or cruel. I’m definitely treating myself to one of these!
