Earth day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to assess the choices we make in our everyday lives that affect the environment. While there are many ways to help, such as taking shorter showers, we can also make a difference through our fashion choices. Clothing waste has become a big environmental issue over the past few years, but by taking a few simple steps we help our planet thrive!
Reduce & Reuse
Investing in higher quality clothes and accessories that will last is key for this! It may be more expensive now, but it’s much cheaper in the long run. By lessening the amount of clothes we buy, we can reduce the amount of waste we produce. Plus your closet will be filled with fabulous items that you truly love to wear!
When cleaning out your closet and throwing out those old garments you just never wear anymore, think about giving it away or selling it! Just like food, if it’s still good don’t waste it! Donation boxes for clothing are usually pretty easy to find, and it’s great to know that it’ll be worn by someone that truly needs it. Alternatively, you can pick out some pieces to sell. Websites such as Poshmark, Depop, and Mercari make it incredibly simple to resell online so why not take advantage of it?
