I was born in Minsk (USSR) and raised in Israel since my early years. I’ve been traveling all my life and finally, for the last 15 years, I can proudly call Amsterdam my home. For the past 10 years I’ve been a graphic designer and an owner of a small graphic design agency, AntFarm Designs.
Sustainability took an important part of my life only after becoming a mom myself. To be honest, I haven’t really given it much thought before that. Fashion has always been an important part of my life and sustainability…. well, not so much. With the arrival of my daughter I got to thinking more and more about the origins of my clothes, ecology and toxic impact of fashion on our planet. For the first time ever I was bothered by the thoughts about the world we are leaving behind for my little girl.
I knew the only way I could start to make a difference was by changing the minds around me… but most of all my own way of life had to change. Not the one to be known to do things half-heartedly, I’ve embarked on a journey of not buying anything for a year. A fun, year long project, where I’ve learned how to customize my clothes, DIY and about the share economy. You can read about my journey here: 365dayswithoutshopping.com.
