Have you considered a trade in program to help with sustainability? Customers can trade in clothes they've worn for awhile, for a discount on newer clothes, and you can have a secondary "Previously loved" section. This will allow people to a) Participate in "fast fashion" without as huge a strain on the environment, and b) have access to your clothing at every price point.

I don't think this is something that's being done currently, but I myself would be more than willing to purchase second hand clothing that the manufacturer has deemed still in good condition.

I live in an apartment in Canada, no balcony, but I think we've got a little community plot.

Is it reasonable for a single person to grow the vast majority of their staple veg (tomatoes, zucchini, lettuce and cucumbers) in just an outdoor plot fairly easily? I've never gardened before and I don't have a tonne of spare time. I assume some plants are easier kept and more robust than others? Could these be grown indoors fairly easily as well?

I guess just some tips on getting my feet into agriculture would be great! City dweller with the heart of a farmer, and it's always been a dream of mine to be more self sufficient.

Damnit. Here I thought I'd had an original idea for once. :p

I recently did a harvest day at a local food bank farm and really enjoyed it! Thanks so much for the suggestions, and the time you've taken to respond.

I may have to look into the working holiday visa! :O
