Embark on a journey toward a better relationship with fashion.

We know fashion is bad for the planet, so why are we still shopping? As a former fashion editor for streetwear publication Highsnobiety and the founder of a sustainable fashion platform, Alec Leach feels like he's in a good place to figure that out.

In his debut book, The World is on Fire But We're Still Buying Shoes, Leach explains why we love to shop so much, how fashion keeps us hungry for more, and the tricks it plays to cover up its true impact on the planet. This journey touches on consumerism, sneaker hype, greenwashing, Karl Marx, mindfulness and everything in between. The result is a manifesto for a slower, more intentional approach to fashion, one that redefines what shopping is - and what it isn't.
In a compact paperback format, this book is equipped with infographics, diagrams, and pull quotes on conscious consumption in a bite-sized, easily digestible format.
