My name is Alba and I am an English teacher, designer and sustainable enthusiast based in Barcelona. I have studied English Studies in the University of Barcelona and Graphic Design in the Pau Gargallo Arts school. I moved to Copenhagen in 2012 to study Business and Design in the Copenhagen School of Design and Technology, I specialised in Sustainable Fashion Design.
I have a passion for art and design. I love photography, design, painting and illustration. I have started writing on my blog at the same time that I was learning what was the meaning of sustainable fashion. I have been always a crazy fashion consumer and starting that blog has helped me to understand the importance of being a more conscious consumer. It all started with fashion but I have been guiding my life towards a more sustainable lifestyle in all senses.
After five years living in Copenhagen I have decided to come back to Barcelona with all the ideas and new lifestyle that I have started in Denmark. Going to zero waste lifestyle was not easy, but you have to start with baby steps. It’s a long process and the hardest part is to switch your thinking. The ultimate goal of zero waste is to have nothing sent to the landfills.
This is not about being perfect, or about changing habits overnight. Rather, this is a simple exercise we can all do to understand the ways in which we, as consumers, are polluters as well.
