Christiane Spangsberg: “We have to change. I’m an idealist so I believe we can do it”
Every week, Filippa K Circle invites inspiring people to share their current mindsets. This week artist Christiane Spangsberg shares her thoughts.
My state of mind: Relaxed and happy. I’m currently by myself on an island outside of Bali.
My best DIY tip for making every day more sustainable: To your own capability, do your best in every aspect of life. My advice: When you’re buying a piece of clothing, ask yourself if you’ll want to wear it straight away, like every day. Will it be your favorite? If not—don’t buy it.
In relation to fashion, I have learned not to: Buy things I don’t need, and I really don’t need a lot.
My eco-fashion prediction: We have to change. I’m an idealist so I believe we can do it. But change is difficult in a world where everything revolves around profit. I guess a lot of people would say this, and it’s true: we as consumers need to step up and take our responsibility.
