When last minute shopping this year, Portland Fashion Week asks that you put some thought into each gift and the long term repercussions on the environment. Disposable, throwaway, single use, fast fashion, and trendy items are all things which soon end up in land fills. Think timeless, long term, utilitarian, and hand made as all are great alternatives to our to our current buying habits. And remember to always shop local! Support your friend's and neighbor's businesses! Shop Local, Think Global!
