Tips to help save the world!
It’s fashion with a conscience.
Ethical fashion is so hot right now, and you heard it hear first! With London-based brands such as People Tree and Stella McCartney championing fair-trade fash foreverrrrr, it’s time to listen up.
The whole industry has gone next level because picking super-cool reworked denim gems from Yung Denim, or tees from sustainable activewear brand, Sundried - who are making their latest collections out of coffee beans BTW - has never been cooler. Cool, AND saving the planet? We’ll take that!
Keen to upcycle your own clothes, cutting those old jeans into a frayed pair of denim shorts, or adding studs and badges to old jackets isn’t so cray. Get creative, think outside the box, and remember the cause is bigger than a new wardrobe. (That’s just a bonus!)
Lower your carbon footprint
Taking better care of your clothes and giving them a little love is an easy way to help lower your carbon footprint. Listen up girls, this will also save on you dollars in the end too! Did someone say more cash for Prosecco…
It looks as good as it feels
Errrrr who said sustainable fashion couldn’t be stylish? Think again, style with a conscience feels pretty damn good, AND looks sweet too.
Have a play
Hunt out your local vintage stores, there are some absolute gems to be had in them. Ease yourself in with a few dresses, you can still mix these in with your fave high-street buys, and you’ll be doing your sustainable bit. It’s all about that fashion power!
Read it and weep
Wanna know more? Run a bath, grab the choccy (palm oil free please!) and settle down with the book Wardrobe Crisis by Marie Claire’s editor-at-large, and eco-fashion warrior Clare Press. Knowledge is power gurls!
