I often get asked about trends and if eco fashion and recycling are just a passing fad. I hope that they’re not. Trends come and go and if people become more environmentally aware because of a trend well that’s great. If they do some thing about it, even better. These pictures were taken down town in Calgary at the Bay. It’s good to know that department stores are creating awareness, it’s a starting point. I’ve always found Canada good for recycling. One summer in Toronto there was a garbage strike and I really learned to recycle: we had a compost heap, bought things with little or no packaging and found ourselves with little waste. I remember when my grandmother went shopping, she always brought her own carrier bag. I don’t remember when plastic became the norm, I do remember paper bags – but they were only good if your drove, anyway now I have a large carrier bag that I use all the time.
