HOW TO AVOID FAST FASHION AND REDUCE OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Oct 27 , 2020
- Organise clothes swaps with friends
Clothes swaps are a great way to get a new look going! What you may see as outdated in your wardrobe, may be what someone else needs in theirs.
- Repair or upcycle
Repairing your clothing is a pretty wholesome feeling and also will prolong there use. Or if you feel up to it, you can use the fabric from your old clothes to create something totally different!
- Buying Second hand
Always a bit of fun looking around the op shop. You never know what may catch your eye.
- Natural fibres over synthetic fibres
Natural fibres are biodegradable whereas synthetic will just be added to our landfill. Also when we wash synthetic clothing, we send out thousands of micro plastics into the ocean.
- Buy from sustainable brands
The more the we demand sustainable and ethical clothing, the more it will be offered. Money talks.
