Making the conscious effort to take the sustainable route is not an overnight process. It involves unlearning wasteful everyday habits and letting go of an excessive lifestyle.
When it comes to clothing, taking care of pieces you already own is the best, most mindful sustainability practice out there. Investing and supporting slow fashion is up on the list too! As seasons and trends come and go, outgrowing certain styles is a given. So select the pieces you haven’t worn in years and give it another life through reworking or giving it another home!
Building your closet with quality pieces is also a a great habit. Assessing the material and production quality before purchasing must be followed. From basics to dressed up dates, having a solid idea of your core items should also be considered.
