Sustainable Clothing

What in the world is sustainable clothing?

Why should I care about a sustainable wardrobe? How do I maintain a sustainable wardrobe?

My 4 ideas:

  • Buy less - this alone would have huge implications for the industry

  • Buy thoughtfully - think fair trade, ethically-sourced, and thrifted garments

  • Take care of your clothes - wear a few times before laundering if possible, spot-clean, wear aprons, wear undershirts, mend clothing

  • Consider organic products - less chemicals in/on my body, respect for environment, looking out for farmer's health
