Today, it is becoming increasingly clear that small actions can have a big impact on the environment. In addition to replacing disposable products like straws and water bottles with reusable alternatives, one way he promotes sustainability on a small scale is by considering the impact of clothing. This approach is reflected in Julia Mooney's insightful experiment. Mooney, a middle school teacher in New Jersey, is on a mission to rein in fast fashion. Rather than simply explaining the importance of sustainable clothing options to her impressionable students, she decided to literally model for them.
On her first day of school, Mooney showed up to class wearing a grey button-up dress. She wore the same clothes the next day without telling the students why. And the next day. And the next day. After several weeks of wearing her dress, she finally let her students participate in the experiment, explaining that there was "no rule anywhere that says they have to wear a different outfit every day."
