One of my classes focuses on the sustainability of the fashion industry and the impact of consumer culture on our environment. The professor gave us a choice of extra credit assignments: write a 15 page research paper, or participate in one of the ongoing research projects. Naturally, being the lazy-but-grade-grabbing person that I am, I chose to be a guinea pig. I am going to participate in the Fashion Detox project, which means I cannot purchase any new fashion item beginning next week, for 13 weeks.
What do you think? Do you think it will be easy or hard?
