In a world where everything fast gets promoted, how can we consciously slow down and be mindful of ourselves and the world we live in?
It’s not easy to stay centered and calm in a world which revolves around quick fixes.
Our brains are designed to respond with feel good hormones when we get that kick that this fast paced world sends out every second, for example on social media platforms.The fast fashion industry is no exception, with a staggering amount of new lines being produced several times a year, it tries to capitalize on our brain chemistry, that new is always better. But is that really the case?
We all know that the world’s resources are far from infinite. How about a way where you both can be kind to the earth and yourself, yet still get that good feeling something new often comes with?
The answer is spelled sustainable choices. To carefully select materials that you know will last, to choose recycled, preloved and to reuse or upcycle first hand. To carefully think how you live your life and make sure that you make decisions that align with the life you want to live.

How does that sound to you?
Difficult? It doesn’t have to be. The trick is to start small and to build from there.
It’s a staggering goal to alone take responsibility for how the earth is doing, but you don’t have to. If we all start making these smaller choices in our everyday lives, together we will change the world for the better.
One step at a time.
We at Malin Ljung Jewellery want to help you find inspiration in how you can do just that, take these small steps for the world and for yourself. Here we want to show you what amazing finds and styles you can find in your local thrift store or in secondhand shops online and also how you can combine them with our sustainable recycled jewellery.
Sustainable fashion doesn’t have to be boring, frumpy or hard to do. It can be an excellent way to get creative and actually spend less money while finding your dream wardrobe.
