If you are new around these parts, let me first say welcome! I am so happy you are here. Secondly, you may be wondering who exactly is Terra Shepherd. Terra Shepherd is actually not a person - it is a business name, a place, a way of thinking, and a community.
I hope you also begin to ask yourself not only WHY but HOW certain goods cost so little. I can assure you that even when an article of clothing is inexpensive to purchase there is most definitely still a cost involved. It’s our responsibility to consider the human and environmental impact of fast fashion and decide if we are willing to accept that price.
When it comes to embracing a sustainable lifestyle, one of the toughest things is to simply recognize WHERE to begin. We are inundated with messages about the dire state of the climate crisis (and rightfully so!), but there tends to be less communication about what individuals can do to lessen their individual impact. It can feel crippling and downright hopeless.
