My interest in sustainable fashion has grown significantly in the past few months. Among the things I've learnt is that it's about making a conscious decision to shop more responsibly. It definitely does not mean that you have to limit your self to grey and white clothing or tee shirts. It doesn't mean you have to toss out all your clothes and start from scratch. It's about just considering where your clothes came from, the process it went through and if there is any way it can benefit the environment better. That's last part is where I'll be helping you because, as I learn, I'm going to be sharing how your clothing can have a better impact on the world around you.
FIRST TIP: The reason most sustainable clothing are grey and white and light brown is because it takes repeated dyeing cycles to properly dye the darker colors. This means more water, more labor, more dye. The lighter colors are gentler on the environment. With that being said, if you really love dark colors, there are others things you can look for, in your attempt to be sustainable. You can shop from brands that manufacture locally. This probably means they spent less on transportation, which probably means they're using less fuel for transportation and less energy.
I want to make it clear that I am not an expert on sustainable fashion. I'm learning so I'd love for us to learn together.
Over the next few months, I'm going to be highlighting some sustainable lines that are also cute.
I also would love to hear your thoughts on sustainability so please share away.
Hope you enjoy!!
