About Jasmine Tuan (Ex-shopaholic and Zero-waste Advocate)
Jasmine Tuan was a shopaholic, a hoarder, a collector and very well organized one! She knew something was wrong whenever she stared at her exploding walk-in-wardrobe, thinking she has nothing to wear. In 2015, when she was offered an opportunity to live and work in Malaysia, it was then she downsized her life from a walk-in wardrobe to a rack full. The currency exchange got her excited about shopping again and the vicious cycle returned. End 2017, Jasmine chanced upon Zero Waste Malaysia FB group. Encouraged by the supportive community and the success of their very first Zero Waste Festival at the event space she was managing, Jasmine decided to embark on a zero-waste journey in 2018 and zero shopping on fashion items too! It hasn’t been an easy ride but it’s been freeing and exciting for her to exercise her creativity in a whole new level. She will be sharing some tips and learnings she has gathered so far in her journey, how she manages to stop shopping altogether yet manage to get new styles and looks from time to time.

After watching The True Cost, Jasmine felt that most consumers do not know who made their clothes. #FashionRevolution
Most of the time, the cheap, fast and disposable fashion we buy are made from sweat shops. Rent instead of Buy for that special occasion. You will most likely wear that dress one time only.
