We all know the term quality over quantity, but how often do you stop to think about your stuff and where it all came from?
Throughout early adulthood, I carted (often unopened) boxes of clothes and household items from place to place (and I moved A LOT!), while collecting more and more stuff.
And I wasn't the only one. Statistics show that 1 out of 10 Americans own a storage unit and that self-storage has turned into a $38 billion dollar industry.
It wasn't until a decade ago, after watching The Story of Stuff, that I decided to make a change. It didn’t happen overnight, but little by little, I’ve changed my habits.
I’m by no means a perfectly conscious consumer today, but I pay attention and think twice before buying cheap junk that will end up in a landfill. And I understand that the landfill is just the last part of the equation. There are upstream impacts that we often forget about.
A few of the most eye opening takeaways from The Story of Stuff were:
Luckily, conscious consumption has gained traction over the years thanks to campaigns like The Story of Stuff Project (and many others). There is growing awareness about fast fashion and the true cost of our goods.
So how is Wag Theory taking responsibility?
And I aim to grow this list longer over time!
Do these actions resonate with you? What do you look for in a sustainable and ethical brand?

I love pulling the curtain back to learn more about the true connection between pups and their humans.
This month, I reached out to Sarah and Trudy. While I didn't know much about about their background, I could tell they shared a special bond and thought it would be fun to learn more about our new Instagram friends all the way across the country in Pennsylvania.
Without further ado, let's get to know them!
