Stoff der Veränderung

My master thesis “Cloth of Change – Quitting ­Nonreflective Consumerism" is all about handling clothes in a considerate way. I tried to work out what ­discourages ­people to shape their consumer behaviour to a mindful, ­self-determined and sustainable consumerism. Besides that, I would like to offer supportive thoughts to interrupt the usual consumerist behavior and provide theoretical answers as well as practical solutions to the question of how to handle clothes in ­alternative ways. The basis for my thoughts in this work are my experiences and ­associated findings within my self-experiment of abstention from ­clothes-consumption.
