In recent years, the world has seen some changes regarding global warming. Many industries are making changes to be more sustainable. The fashion industry is one of them in terms of finding ways for sustainability. If you are struggling to find ways to make sure that you are more eco-friendly, here are a few tips to help you with that.
Many brands out there are making sure that they are making their clothes more sustainable. However, there are still a select few who are not doing that. When shopping at major stores, look for clothes that say sustainable or organic on the label. If they don’t say anything, the likelihood is that they are not sustainable.
One thing that you will want to do when shopping is look for eco-friendly materials. Either way, make sure that you read the label first before purchasing. It is time to stop supporting these brands that do not look to make a change.
Many people like to buy a new outfit once they have worn one. Females will only wear a piece of clothing once and not wear it again. There is no reason for wearing an outfit once and never again, especially if it looks good. If anything, that warrants you to wear again.
If you want to be sustainable, make sure you wear clothes more than once. Avoid buying a new one for an upcoming event and, re-wear one from a previous event. Even better if it is with different people as well.
Research has suggested that washing your clothes accounts for between 60% – 80% of an item’s environmental impact. If that stat alone doesn’t make you want to make a change, nothing will. Avoid using a dryer and let them dry naturally.
Another thing that you can do is put your washing machine at a low temperature. Most washing machines out there will have an eco wash mode. Nonetheless, try to avoid washing your clothes every few days. A full tracksuit does not need to be washed every time it has been worn.
Many people in your friendship group will have the same size as you for clothes. It is common practice for females but, there is no reason why men can’t do it either. Swapping clothes is a great way for you to discover new styles. As well as save you from buying a new outfit. The best bit about this is the fact that you have saved money whilst wearing a new outfit. Not to mention the fact that you are doing your bit in helping save the planet.
There are many things that you can do to make sure that you are being more eco-friendly. From getting the most of your clothes to buying sustainable products. Swapping clothes with your friends is one of the best things you can do. Make sure when you are purchasing a tracksuit that it is sustainable fabric.
