Climate Anxiety: Staying child-free and ditching fast fashion for the planet

Verena Brunschweiger, author of Do Childfree People Have Better Sex?, was recently interviewed by Prime Time. She spoke about being childfree, climate anxiety and the mental health crisis, and fast fashion’s role in climate change (a staggering 8% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions!).

“I don’t have a bad conscience,” she told Prime Time, as she has not “brought an innocent new being into this world, which is already dying and burning … We are in the middle of a climate catastrophe … so it’s a win, win situation. I don’t inflict this upon a new person.”
