#1 She’s obsessed with fair trade products
Emma Watson told that she became obsessed with fair trade products when she was in school. So, what is a fair trade? Fair trade is a trade which producers get fair prices in developing countries. She definitely concerns about fast-fashion impacts to our planet. She even visited Bangladesh in 2010, to see the impact of fair trade fashion, and find out about the real cost of fast-fashion.

She cares about everything she wears. It’s not just about looking pretty, but also the stories behind her dresses.

Another example is her Ellie Saab gown that was made with leftover fabric from the previous collection. So inspiring!
#3 She asks herself this question before buying something
She avoided impulse shopping and start shopping wisely. She asks herself this question before buying something: ‘Do I really use this? Do I really want it? Am I going to wear it? How much am I going to wear this? Would you wear it thirty times?’
On her Instagram account, there’s a hashtag ‘#30wears’ (which means she will wear it thirty times or more). She wears her Burberry Shoes more often which is made with organic silk. By shopping wisely, you’ll help this earth from destruction.

Emma Watson’s closet is much simpler than you think. Her favorite piece is black cashmere turtleneck, from Chinti and Parker. Being sustainable also means taking care of what you already own. Also, buying vintage/secondhand clothes, and buying things that are more durable.
#5 She has less but…
Emma thinks carefully when buying and tends to shop online a lot more. And she uses Instagram to discover more brands through it. She used to buy whenever she had time although she didn’t really need it. She has less but those are things that she loves and she’s much more creative because of it.
