You might consider yourself an eco-warrior, but do you think you could go without new clothes or shoes for a whole year? That’s exactly what Esther N McCarthy decided to do.

After a bet with her husband about her shopping habits, Esther turned her back on fast fashion and embraced a circular economy, choosing to rewear and reuse what she already owned in lieu of buying more.

She is fast approaching the end of her year-long challenge and for the Irish Examiner’s Sustainability Week she will be sharing her insights into a year without impulse buys with Vickie Maye in a live video on Monday, May 16 at 1pm.
