Early last year I decided to make it an official part of my content calendar to write a couple of Shopping Resource posts each month.
Not only did I find that these posts garnered more “evergreen” attention and social media shares, my Reader Survey and analytics proved that curated shop lists for specific types of clothing and accessories is what people are searching for.
And that makes sense. Once you have a general idea of the ways that exploitation and environmental degradation are woven into the fabric of the fashion industry, you probably don’t need a dozen more think pieces. What you need is a “what next?” and often that comes down to how you shop.
You can always search Resource posts by clicking on the Resources tag in my sidebar or drop-down menu, but I wanted to make it even easier by hand selecting the shopping posts and compiling them into a single post. I plan on updating this post frequently, so feel free to bookmark it as a reference.
