Invest in quality not quantity
Look to invest in buying high quality and ethically made clothing pieces, over purchasing poor quality fast fashion pieces.
Buy second hand, swap or rent
Extending the life of clothing can be done by purchasing second hand, swapping items with friends, or renting pieces for that special occasion. So many options available these days!
Choose sustainable fashion materials
Opt for materials such as regenerated cotton, organic cotton, regenerated wool, hemp, organic linen, TENCEL or Pinatex.
Shop your own wardrobe first
Love what you already have. Before purchasing new clothing items, try to shop your own wardrobe first and wear the clothes you already own.
Get creative with old fabric
Have old fabric, clothing, sheets, or towels? Why not get creative and repurpose them to make new clothing, cushion covers, or a fun accessory!
Buy less and buy local
Buying less clothing is one of the best ways you can become a more conscious fashion consumer. And if you do need to buy something new, why not opt for locally and ethically made clothes?
Sew your own clothes
Using second hand fabric to sew your own clothes is a great way to give a new life to something that may otherwise have ended up as waste.
Keep an eye on your washing
Wear your clothes more than once, air and spot clean them between washes, use green detergent, use cold water, avoid half loads and only use that tumble dryer sparingly. Better for your clothes and for the planet.
