From extensive use of private jets to unnecessary wastage of water, the Kardashians have been far from sustainable.

The mother of three shared her response on Instagram in a post where she wrote, “I went back and forth about doing this collection with @boohoo because the first thing I think about when I hear the words fast fashion is that it is bad for our planet. Boohoo approached me to be a sustainability ambassador, and though I knew it would get backlash because the two just don’t go hand in hand, I thought about the fact that fast fashion, or the fashion industry in general, isn’t going anywhere.”

Kourtney Kardashian Plans Big Changes With This Partnership

She further talked about how she wishes to push Boohoo to make some initial changes and later hold them accountable for larger changes to create an impact. The reality star also mentioned that she was aware of the fact that this collaboration would definitely make some noise and she was just hoping for that.

Fans Bash Kourtney For Being Exploiting People’s Emotions

One user commented, “Simply refuse and work with an actual sustainable line.”

“A lot of words…could have just said, I’d do anything for money,” wrote another.

A third user spits facts and wrote, “This is complete bullshit from start to finish. BooHoo didn’t change anything for her line and they’re not going to take her ‘sustainability’ suggestions to heart. How about you stop using all the water in California Kourtney and actually practice what you preach? Bible.”

“I always think of how interesting their branding could’ve been if they actually cared about causes and partnered with companies making real changes to bring awareness to issues. I’m not saying it’s their responsibility (because capitalism) but it would’ve been a smart route, people could take them more seriously and they might actually feel some fulfillment in their lives,” wrote a fourth user.
