Sam Leigh is the Founder and Fashion Blogger behind the Australian sustainable fashion blog, eco|mono. eco|mono is dedicated to bringing readers sustainable style inspiration in the way of creating a beautiful monochrome wardrobe of essential pieces.
From a fast fashion hoarder to slow fashion minimalist, Sam has been seeking out the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to who, how and where our clothes our made. Educating herself on what goes on behind the scenes of fashion.
Now, Sam spends her time to telling these stories to others via her blog, eco|mono. She understands that mass consumerism is a global issue, so imagine having a wardrobe full of clothing that doesn't hurt people or the planet?
It's time we gave as much thought into what we put on our bodies as we do what we put in our bodies. If you're buying a pair of jeans from Primark that cost as much as your lunch; roughly £10 you need to ask yourself why? why are my jeans so cheap?
Halloween has now passed and so the Christmas festivities begin. Christmas shopping starts and we go to more parties than our livers would like. We start to become consumed in Christmas. Buying more, drinking more, spending more, eating more. Hey, it's Christmas right?

So, I delved into the big scary world of google to do some research. My search uncovered so much content surrounding recent studies on microplastic. I suddenly became completely overwhelmed. It made me think, how are we (the general public) supposed to raise awareness or do our bit to help if we don't understand what it is?
