It’s safe to say that sustainability is a word we are hearing more often in day to day life, especially when it comes fast fashion/plastic usage. Unfortunately we live in a ‘throw away’ culture, items are disposable and thats just what we’re used to. I think it’s obvious that we need to change the way we consume products, fashion/accessories especially. It can be quite difficult on a student (or recent graduate) budget, but there are affordable brands out there, like Kula.
sustainability on a budget.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s easy to pop into Primark and pick up a bargain that looks good, but in terms of sustainability…not great. I think its better to spend a lil bit more and get something thats stylish and good for the planet. Kula bags start from £20 which is relatively cheap anyway in my opinion. I opted for the Whitworth Backpack, which is medium size but has plenty of space. I love the shape of this bag and its perfect for everyday use, whether thats going to work, heading out with friends etc. All of Kula’s bags are made using Texon Vogue – a durable, practical and washable paper and the lining is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. The bags are also 100% vegan and are much more sustainable than other faux leather and vegan options.
the way forward.
Kula Bags were founded in the summer of 2019, so still relatively new on the market. I love that this is (hopefully) the way things are headed. Companies such as Lucy & Yak are doing so well and so they should be with amazing clothing and it’s the same with Kula. Super cute designs at affordable prices and sustainable? More brands should be taking note.
