Singer Katy Perry is doing her part for the environment! In an Instagram Live, the singer addressed her fashion choices and how she plans to do better in the future, according to Honey Celebrity. 

“I used to be so addicted to shopping,” she said. “I have become so aware of how wasteful I have been as a consumer with clothes. In my personal life I have pledged to myself that I am not really going to buy. I want to only buy out of necessity.”

Perry noted the environmental impact of the fashion industry and setting an example for her daughter, “Clothes are in the top five of the most polluting things for our planet and I cannot be a part of that like I was, especially knowing my daughter is going to grow up in that.”

Perry is known for her extravagant outfits on the red carpet and in music videos.
