Choosing sustainable brands is good. Do you know what’s even better? Buying something that has already been used by someone else. That way we can decrease the amount of clothes produced, which means less pressures on planetary resources, and fewer clothes end up in landfills.
The most sustainable thing we can do is thrift. That way we can minimize the impact on our planet, while still renewing your closet. Many stores also have pre-loved/re-selling sections - make sure to check that out!
Sustainable fashion requires community wide effort
Reuse. Reduce. Repair. Repurpose. Recycle. These steps are key to a sustainable lifestyle, and to make real change we need to work together. We can all do something. Become part of the change.
Take action now:
1) Ask your local clothing store what they do for the environment
2) Many stores offer repair services - pay them a visit with the clothes that need mending
3) Swap clothes with your friends, or resell the clothes you no longer want
4) Check out the sustainability page of your favorite brands’ websites to learn more about their work
