So, if you dropped by our stall at the Festival of Mission on Sunday, you would have either seen or picked up one of these babies. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the game plan for #youareKINGDOM2k16, and we are very excited to share it with you! Whilst we're not going to start until 2016 officially rolls on through, we're still preparing and researching, and hopefully you're preparing your suggestions too!
Allow me to explain our game plan to you a little bit more..
We have come up with 18 categories that we believe would create a very well-rounded (female) wardrobe (fellas, you can adapt - or take it as it is if you'd like!). Whilst you may think that this list is a bit excessive, we have intentionally made it very thorough because as we've explained before, this whole mission is about integrity. Integrity doesn't stop when people can't see what you're doing. In fact, the whole point of integrity is that you still stick by your morals/values/word especially when no one can see you. Therefore we've included categories such as undergarments as well as sleepwear. Integrity is a 24/7 gig, and as an organisation and blog, we aim to practice what we preach, as well as show you guys that an ethically conscious lifestyle is truly possible.
Down at the bottom, below the categories, we have included some criteria for brands that we'd like to discover, meet, and purchase from. Obviously it's super difficult (if not currently impossible) to find a brand that covers every single one of those points, but it is our intention to support and promote any companies who share our same heart for integrity. If they are playing their part in creating a better world, we want to honour that. If their intentions are positive, we want to encourage that.
At the end of the day, we're just learning like everyone else is, and we'd really love for you guys, our KINGDOM. fam, to actively join us on this mission. Whether you participate by making suggestions on our Instagram, telling your friends about this campaign, or even challenging yourself to redo your wardrobe alongside us, we would LOVE for you to embark on this journey with us. Imagine the movement that we could start if we, as a family, dedicated 12 months to trying our best to be conscious consumers. Imagine!
Also, remember that there is no supply without demand - so let's demand better things! Even better, let's demand better things for those who can't do that for themselves, such as those who still need safe working conditions, to be paid a living wage, access to healthcare, and access to education amongst many other fundamental human rights.
Clothes are only the beginning. We propose that we start here and do it right.
The best is yet to come.
