hello again! we do have second hand shops here of course, and i figured i would go there for some things. i, like you, figure that this way i am recycling. this is so difficult, really! because when you get away from animal clothing products, you get into synthetics, which of course includes petroleum in the production process. *sigh* i need to chill out because this stuff has been consuming my thoughts lately. i dreamt last night that i was explaining my changes in thinking and behavior to my mother (who was vegetarian for many years before she became pregnant with my brother. she craved meat with him, and didn't with me. oddly, my brother is a meat and potatoes man, while i'm obviously not. hmm...)
i plan to go shopping sometime this coming week. i have barely bought any clothing in 3-4 years because money was tight (husband was still in school). i got by on what i had but i'm sick of wearing the same old stuff. a big thing i need is t-shirts, which shouldn't be hard. i know of a store that sells bio cotton shirts, but they're pricey and kind of shapeless. i work from home and generally have a casually dressed lifestyle, so i'm not going to need to go out and buy new office wear, but at the same time i don't want to dress in potato sacks. i'm glad this is only spring shopping so i don't need to get into wool substitutes. hopefully come fall/winter i'll be a bit more well versed in all this stuff so it won't be such a learning process.
