Our lifestyle choices severely impact the well-being of our planet and its resources. Sustainable living means that you are making deliberate positive choices that reduce your carbon footprint and thereby living a life aimed at the greater good of our world. One of the primary steps to achieving that is to reduce your consumption of clothing and embrace ethical and sustainable fashion. Here are four tips to keep your fashion sustainable.
No Shame in Repeating
Toxic celebrity culture and the rise of social media have convinced us over the years that repeating outfits is a sign of your poor economic status. There is absolutely nothing wrong with repeating outfits. Buy less and make the best out of what you already have.
Spend your money wisely on vintage dresses, blouses, tops, sweaters, t-shirts and jackets to reduce the use of resources without compromising on your style quotient. Retro Ralph Lauren and vintage Harley Davidson clothes can help keep your fashion sustainable if
you purchase them from thrift fashion stores.
Knowledge is Power
Keep yourself informed about the business practices of top brands for a guilt-free shopping experience. Brands like Reebok, Adidas, Levis and Tommy Hilfiger may not be the most sustainable brands out there but you can make up for it by purchasing preloved clothes
from these companies. Many of them have sustainable fashion lines nowadays.
Sharing is Caring
Always donate the clothes you are not using to pass them on to those who need them. That Fruit of the Loom Beatles t-shirt that you have lying around may have the right takers who will choose not to buy something new for the sake of the planet. So, pay it forward by
donating your clothes.
