#WhiteMonday Movement : An Antidote to Our Over Consumption Culture

#WhiteMonday Movement : An Antidote to Our Over Consumption Culture

Here’s the fact : the planet can’t afford more shopping frenzy campaigns that hype  over consumption and we need to change our consumption habit ! 

The #whitemonday movement was founded in 2017 in Malmö, Sweden,by the circular cloth-repair start up Repamera AB. The movement is the antidote to #BlackFriday and rooted on reuse, repair and rent values to promote circular consumption.

While #BlackFriday stands for linear, wear & tear consumption and competition, #WhiteMonday is all about circular consumption and collaboration. The black/white and Monday/Friday elements are chosen to draw clear differences between the two movements, just like Yin & Yang.

"Circularity shouldn’t be bold actions, but everyday business. We need to re-think and re-shape how our (fashion) world functions. And linear economy is so 90’s anyway"
