Tell us your name, age, where you’re from and describe yourself in one sentence. My name is Johanna, I’m 23 years old and I live in Hamburg/Germany. I would describe myself as a very positive, happy and open minded person.
Who’s your role model? And why? I don’t really have a specific role model, because everybody is unique and special in their own way in my opinion. But I admire people who are confident in themselves and encourage others to love themselves too.
What’s the dumbest thing you believed as a child? That it’s possible to swim in a puddle haha
Tell us your best joke! I’m the worst at making jokes because I always mix up words and it never makes sense in the end. I’m more the unintentionally-type-of-funny.
What are your favorite sustainable brands? Unfortunately many sustainable brands are still either too expensive or not really fashionable in my opinion but I always loved second hand shops! My mom brought me there since I was a baby and it was always an adventure to find new treasures.
What is your opinion on fast fashion? Fast fashion is a falling trend. Aside from the horrifying damage it does to our planet, I also think it’s way cooler to have unique and special vintage items over boring, bad quality pieces that everybody wears.
What’s your favourite healthy snack/food? My favorite healthy snacks are energy balls and salted nuts!
What comes to your mind when you hear the word individuality? Individuality seems pretty underrated nowadays since many people want to live up to all the „ideals“ regarding beauty and fashion - really sad if you ask me! I love to have my own personal style and show the real me.
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.
