#Wedontbuyit! Demanding fashion that's fair

Advertising convinces young people that buying more will provide them with a sense of satisfaction. But relentless purchasing only creates short highs and fails to address our underlying need for a sense of self worth. It is also fuelling the unsustainable use of our planet's resources.
