We hope you are still alright in these times of crisis. Maybe feeling more stress than usual, maybe you do have more time than usual at home and you can really slow down a bit. Imagine that there will be a profound awekening after this time of crisis. In order for us to be sustainable as an industry and as human beings we must break old patterns and find new, more elevated ways of living.
Read this content to discover some simple steps on how to do an ethical wardrobe simple changes for a happier, healthier and greener world. Now before we told we want to explain to discussion what is ‘’ethical fashion’’.
Ethical fashion is when a brand has fair trade practices and builds respect for their workers in every step of their supply chain. They focus on creating high quality garments but sharing the profits equally to every part of the chain. Ethical fashion is knowing that it isn't just a clothe. There is a human being and a story behind and we should care.
Change Your Mindset!
Why do you need 30 pairs of shoes? Why do you need 5 black dresses? Changing this mindset is what will help you release your urge to materialism and eventually will help you feel even lighter and happier. starting to become a minimalist does not only change your wardrobe, but the way you see life. It also makes you start an ethical wardrobe.
You take good care of what you have. Start to reuse your clothing again!
2. BUY LESS
You buy less, only getting something that is in line with your values.
3. TAKE CARE
You take with care, washing your clothes on gentle, and mending as needed instead of donating them, knowing that 80% of donated clothes still end up in the landfill or burned.
You invest in sustainable brands, which supports ethical practices.
5. BUY ETHICAL
85% of textile workers is a woman, only 1% of all clothing is produced under fair working conditions... So if you want to support women, you should start buying fair trade clothing!
6. SECOND HAND
Recycle your clothing and shop local second hand shops.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with repeating outfits, posting the same dress on your Instagram, rewearing a beautiful dress to a wedding. If you learn to love your clothes and always think if an item will be wearable with more than 50% of your closet, you will find that recycling is a fun way of “shopping your closet”. We hope this extensive post has at least inspired you in some way to become part of the fashion revolution that is slowly changing the way this industry works as well as how to start an ethical wardrobe on a budget.
We are at the beginning of change right now!
