Your support makes a huge difference!
With your monthly contributions My Green Closet can produce even better content.
Currently I do everything in my spare-time, with limited equipment and resources, and almost no budget. Researching and fact-checking alone can take hours, sometimes full days, and on top of that there's writing, filming, editing, taking photos and social media promotion.
With your help I can create better quality content, spend more time working on videos and posts, create videos I previously couldn't make because of budget restrictions, and reach more people!
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 content- which will always be free for everyone to watch and read.

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 5 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 videos I hope to educate and inspire people to ask questions, learn about products and brands, and make mindful choices.
Thank you so incredibly much for your support!
