Clothes

The Fast Fashion industry regularly operates unsustainable and environmentally unfriendly practices. Clothes are poorly designed and manufactured without durability. Clothes are discarded and replaced regularly. Most clothes are difficult to recycle as they are made from poor quality materials. Charity shops are overwhelmed with collections and some excess clothes are sent for sale to developing countries. The rest end up as landfill waste.

DO

  • Take good care of your clothes so that they last longer. Here are some essential clothing care tips.
  • Give importance to the clothes you wear and buy. Your wardrobe should be full of your favourite clothes that you wear often.
  • Buy what you truly need and love, rather than giving into the latest short lived fad. Use your clothes to define who you are!
  • Buy quality clothes made from durable and sustainable materials.
