National Op Shop Week Highlights Australia’s Frightening Fast Fashion Consumption

This week we’re celebrating National Op Shop Week.  But why does Australia dedicate a whole week to op shopping? Well, while it may sound like a fun time to grab some great fashion bargains, there is a very serious reason behind this initiative.

We spoke with Jon Dee, from the non-profit organisation, DoSomething, to talk about the importance of National Op Shop Week.  We learned about Australia’s love affair with fast fashion and the devastating effect it’s having on our environment, as well as the integral economic and charitable role that op shops play for Australian communities. Listen to find out how you can get involved and benefit.
