Help spread the message of buying less and buying better!


My Green Closet is a YouTube channel and blog about conscious style and sustainable living. With a mission to educate, help and inspire people to think about their purchases, reduce consumption, choose more ethical and eco-friendly options, and ultimately build a wardrobe and lifestyle they love that reflects their values.

You'll find videos and posts about:
  • capsule wardrobes
  • secondhand & thrift shopping 
  • green & natural beauty products
  • what makes clothing eco-friendly & ethical
  • mindful fashion brands & how to find them
  • ethical/sustainable dilemmas
  • and living simpler and greener

I know it can get overwhelming and discouraging researching issues like fashion industry pollution, textile waste, forced labour in factories, etc. and to find better alternatives. I try to present information in a straight-forward, easy to understand way, emphasizing the positive (often very small!) changes we can all make. 


  
Your support makes a huge difference!
Your monthly contributions go directly towards producing content for My Green Closet. 
It takes a lot to run a blog and YouTube channel. Researching and fact-checking alone can take days, sometimes weeks, and on top of that there's writing, filming, editing, styling, shooting photos, messaging brands, and social media promotion; and it's not just time, there are also a lot of costs that go into it, like filming equipment, editing software, subscriptions to industry resources, website hosting and security, etc.

Your support helps keep the blog and channel going and if we reach some of the goals will also allow me to create more in-depth videos I currently can't make because of budget restrictions.


What is Patreon?
It's like Kickstarter but instead of a one-time contribution you become a patron and contribute monthly to support the ongoing creation of videos and blog content- which will always be free (and now youtube-ad-free) for everyone to watch and read!

What does it mean to be a patron of My Green Closet?
You are the driving force behind the channel! Your support helps create and improve content on My Green Closet. 
As a thank-you, some rewards you can receive are: 
  • your name in the credits at the end of each video
  • access to the patron-only message board
  • monthly patron-only live Q&A 
  • more added soon!


A little about me:

Hi! My name's Verena Erin Polowy but most people call me by my middle name, Erin. I've always loved fashion and while pursuing a fashion design degree I was shocked and horrified to learn how destructive and abusive clothing manufacturing can be - I needed to find alternatives to the 'fast fashion' culture I'd previously just accepted.

For over 7 years I've been learning about sustainable and ethical fashion and slowly building a more conscious and minimal wardrobe (which has also spread to other areas of my life). I became passionate about slow fashion- supporting designers who are making changes in the industry and helping people learn about how their clothes are made and how to shop more responsibly.

I believe as consumers we have a lot of power and through My Green Closet I hope to educate and inspire people to ask questions, learn about products and brands, and make mindful choices. 


Thank you so much for your support!

Goals
$340 of $700 per month
Reaching this goal will allow me to do some more in-depth videos that require more time and help, things like filming at locations, doing tours, and interviews. Some ideas for videos I'd like to do are:
  • touring a textile recycling centre
  • visiting a fibre farm and textile mill to show the process
  • interviewing designers about conscious design
  • visiting a factory and interviewing garment workers
  • talking to researchers in areas like micro-fibre pollution, textile science, recycling innovation, etc.
  • interviewing consumers about fast fashion/slow fashion shopping habits
