Key Findings from the Interview

  1. When I say "sustainable fashion" what comes to mind?

“I’m not entirely sure, is it like buying clothes that are eco-friendly and can last long? Like eco-friendly production and durability so you don’t have to keep buying clothes and harming the environment?”

  1. Is buying clothes sustainably an important issue to you? Why or why not?

“Honestly no. As a guy I don’t have interest in fashion so sustainable clothing doesn't really interest me or impact me in any sort of way.”

  1. Do you yourself shop for clothes sustainably and promote sustainable fashion? Do you do this in everyday life?

“Not really, I barely shop for clothes at all and when I do I usually just look for things I like or good brands over sustainability and eco-friendliness.”

  1. Is there more that you think you could do to help contribute to sustainable fashion?

“Probably, but as someone who is not at all into fashion, I think it would take a great deal to get me to start changing my ways and focusing on it since I barely focus on clothes in the first place.”

  1. Finally, have you ever encountered problems regarding fashion and sustainability?

“No, I think growing up and still now I just never had a very big problem or serious situation with it.”
