This month marks the opening of my sustainable online shop. I have spent the last six months sourcing high quality recycled items to bring to you! Check out the shop link, where you will find a few items listed already.
I will soon be posting a shop preview for Patreon subscribers. This will be a list of items available to patrons two whole weeks before my shop goes live! In addition, Patreon subscribers will be receiving a discount and access to special deals in the future. ❤
So, back to the topic of this post. What exactly is sustainable fashion?
The simplest definition of sustainable fashion is clothing that is produced with a reduced environmental and social impact.
There are two main avenues for making your wardrobe more sustainable.
- Buying from manufacturers who prioritise sustainable production
- Buying second hand.
In response to a growing interest in sustainable fashion, there are a number of brands making ethical changes to their production processes. These brands are restructuring their manufacturing practices to ensure that clothing is made with a smaller environmental impact and that workers who create these items work in safer conditions.
Let me know if you would be interested in a blog post exploring these brands, and I’ll do the research and put one together!
Aside from seeking out these kinds of designers, a really great way to make an impact is to avoid buying anything new and simply recycle fashion.
I’ve spoken about the benefits of second hand shopping in the past, but if you still think the process of shopping for second hand clothing is difficult, I’m going to post about how you can source great recycled fashion next week.
