Now that we have some free time on our hands, it's best to make use of it wisely and learn a skill or two and educate ourselves with a few interesting courses. While quite a few of us have engaged ourselves with courses that will help develop careers, we suggest checking out a few courses that will help train you to lower your fashion carbon footprint as well. With the circumstances we're facing, a lot of us are also concerned about the state of the environment and eco-system. If you're a fashion enthusiast or simply want to know more about how to lower your consumption through the clothes you wear or your shopping and recycling techniques, taking up a sustainable fashion course might be the right choice for you.
