STARTING THE CONVERSATION ON SUSTAINABLE SHOPPING HABITS WITH BY FIONA WOOD
The first step to being a more sustainable shopper is to stop mass buying, and most importantly stop supporting fast-fashion brands. The truth is, fast fashion is impossibly harmful to our planet.
The next step everyone should be focusing on is to shop more mindfully. Instead of buying a new pair of jeans, for example, think about re-purposing a pair you already own, or shopping at brands such as Re/Done that use vintage Levis jeans so you are not creating more fabric waste.
It is so important that we support smaller brands and businesses, now more than ever before. A place to start is for all of us to look within ourselves and focus on why it is so important to support smaller brands that have been hit hardest by the pandemic.
The Reclaimery, which is Fashion with a Social Cause, in London helps you up-cycle and re-purpose your wardrobe. Not everything in your wardrobe needs to either go or be replaced, or stay forever. Consider the concept of re-inventing your clothes to create something unique.
