How One Hashtag Is Bringing Equality For All
By Amanda Asencio
Clothing is a statement, an identity and a lifestyle. One of our first thoughts in the morning is ‘what am I going to wear?’ but does it ever occur to think how your closet affects the environment and those around you? The clothing industry is the second-biggest polluter of potable water.
Clothing is a necessity and the way you shop says a lot about who you are. Tired of having your jeans wear out after a few washes? Shop sustainable. Not only does it help save the environment, but it also lasts longer for a timeless durable look.

Created by fashion designer Henriette Ernst in December 2016, ROUND + SQUARE values itself on peace, prosperity and gender equality inspired by powerful stories of women fighting for their rights.
