I started Conscious and Considered in order to write about my interest in ethical consumption and sustainable design. I study Textile Design at the University of Leeds, specialising in knitted textiles, and use my studies to inform my writing.

I believe considerate design is a key way to change the way we consume. If more ethically designed products are available to the mass market there is nothing to stop people from making good decisions and buying from companies who have strong social, ethical and environmental responsibility.

I wish to educate people about conscious consumption, making it easier to live and shop in a more sustainable way. I have made the choice to live more ethically and want to share my journey with others to help them do the same!
