Tell us your name, age, where you’re from and describe yourself in one sentence. My name is Johanna, I am 20 years old and from Passau, lower Bavaria. I’ve always got a smile on my face and I am a creative head.
Who’s your role model? Why? My role models are all people who learned to be and express themselves and also try to bring the best out of their fellows.
What’s the dumbest thing you believed as a child? I always imagined that all angels in heaven have their own cloud to sleep in.
Tell us your best joke. I’m too bad in telling jokes, so I don’t.
What are your favourite sustainable brands? Primarily I am shopping second hand, so I never bought something from a „sustainable brand“. So I would probably say „vinted“, „humana“ and „resales“.
What is your opinion on fast fashion? It doesn’t fit in a time where sustainability an environmentalism plays such an important role and should be consumed as an exception only.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word individuality? I like people who have a sense of individuality. I love expression and anything awkward and imperfect, because that’s natural and that’s real.
Has social media given you more confidence in expressing yourself? No, not really. To be and express myself is something my older siblings taught me very early so I would say I am used to it, kind of. I am expressing myself more in real life, social media for me is more a way to get inspired by others.
Thanks to you guys we were able to recycle more than 20.000 vintage pieces over the last year, save 24 mio. liters of water and make people more aware of a sustainable alternative to the fast fashion industry! Now we want to use this platform to tell the individual stories of our unique community members. We‘d love to get your story out there for people to be inspired and to enhance conciousness.
We‘d love to hear your stories! Send us a mail or DM with the title #thriftyoftheweek for a chance to be featured.
