It is almost few years when I recognised that I unconsciously shop sustainable. My goal is to do it more serious. So this is few tips how can you learn it too and join fashion in a little bit different way!
Look out for plastic on the label. Single-use plastic is one of the most issues we are currently falling as a planet, but you may not be aware that plastic also infiltrated our clothes in the form of fibres. Such as: polyester, nylon and ryon. They are simply other form of plastic. Most of them are used into active wear products.
Shop vintage. This is my favourite part of sustainable living! There are so many amazing sources of vintage fashion that offer quilt-free fashion purchases. I have found silk blouses, 100% cashmere coats and sweaters. Those last for a lifetime! And they are definitely my favourite fashion pieces that I wear over and over again!
Shop less. Shop better. Invest more in quality pieces and try to avoid flash-in-the-pan trends! Fact: more than half our purchases are discarded in less than a year! Capsule wardrobe is the key!
Rethink your beauty choices. All of us know that we don’t need hundred of different beauty products. Look up for favourite ones. And of course stand out silicone from your routine! Silicone is a magic plastic – produce more dramatic results.
Donate or sell. I know sometimes it is hard to say goodbye for fashion piece but if you do not wore it for a year you definitely do not need it! Of course do not just threw away. There are many platforms where you can sell or donate your old stuff! (Will talk about it later)
I hope these tips were helpful for you and you will join me in this sustainable and slow fashion way!
