    Biggest surprise was the “virtual” water use. At home, I am pretty low energy use. But in my purchases? Not so much. Quite the eye opener.

    I have always bought high quality clothing which needs replacing infrequently. I now look for B Corp and other climate wise companies to purchase from.
