Quit Fast Fashion & build your conscious closet by Verena Erin Polowy

Are you ready to Quit Fast Fashion?

This ebook/workbook is designed to help you change your shopping habits and build a wardrobe that reflects both your style and values.

This is not a process of sacrifice, deprivation, or giving up the things you like, as one might assume, but a way to tune in to your personal needs and curate a wardrobe that gives you more fulfillment.

Quit Fast Fashion takes a very holistic view, so you’re not going to simply find a list of “bad” and “good” brands, or “3 steps to become a conscious consumer!” Instead, it works from the foundation of your existing closet, needs, shopping habits, and values to help you take a more mindful approach to your wardrobe overall and start you on your “slow fashion” journey.

About the Author

Verena Erin Polowy

Verena ‘Erin’ Polowy first became passionate about sustainable and ethical fashion when she learned about the incredible impact clothing has on people and the planet while working on her degree in Fashion Design and Technology around 10 years ago. After graduating she worked with various clothing brands in design and production positions, as well as with individuals as a personal shopper and stylist, while continuing to learn about the fashion industry and how things could be done in a better way.

About 5 years ago Erin started the My Green Closet youtube channel and posted her first video. She has been spreading awareness and her passion for conscious fashion through videos and her blog ever since.

Who is this workbook for?

Anyone who would like some guidance with assessing their wardrobe needs, changing their shopping habits, gaining insight into how their clothes are made, and taking a more conscious approach to fashion.

It’s written for someone who is newer to slow fashion though so if you are already a ways into your journey some of the chapters and activities might already be familiar or common practice for you. While I think everyone can gain knowledge, tips, and tools from this book if you find it’s not valuable for you then you can contact me to receive a refund within 7 days of purchase.

If you are someone who’s followed me for a while and took part in the “Fast Fashion Fast” challenge I hosted a few years ago then you will notice this book has a similar structure and many of the same prompts/activities, but is a lot more in-depth. I still think it can be beneficial as a refresher and to work through even if you completed the challenge!

How to Purchase

The workbook is available as a PDF document purchasable either directly or by becoming a monthly Patreon supporter at the $10 level.

For direct purchases we have sliding-scale pricing from $10 – $25. This was done to try and make the book as accessible as possible while still being able to cover costs. The recommended price for the book is $15 but if you choose to pay more you’re helping offset the cost for someone else and supporting more conscious-living content on My Green Closet – thank you!
