This for That Guides Fashion

Replace your everyday fashion with sustainable finds

Buy clothing that will last a long time or long enough to resell. Hit up amazing upcycling businesses like Swap Society or ThredUp. These purpose driven companies make buying secondhand clothing as fun as scavenger hunts!

TIPS & TRICKS

(1) SEEK OUT old companies who are changing their sustainability DNA, like Levi’s Jeans who are game changers because improving the life cycle of jeans means reducing water waste and carbon emissions. 

(2) CHECK where your clothes are made from. 

(3) START understanding fabric materials and how they can create less impact (cotton vs polyester). 

CONSIDER THIS

Buy from  upcycle designers. They take unwanted clothing or material and creatively repurposes or upcycles them into beautiful new pieces that are to die for.

WHAT'S TRENDING NOW

Buying from vintage shops or online markets means you help eliminate a portion of the 100 billion pieces of clothing that gets thrown in landfills every year.

What's The Fuss With Sustainable Fashion?

Sustainable fashion is the opposite of fast, cheap fashion buying. Instead, it is the practice of creating, designing, manufacturing, and selling clothing in a way that doesn’t harm the planet or the people making the clothes. ​​

We should all work to minimize any undesirable environmental effect during a product’s life cycle. This means: (a) ensuring efficient and careful use of natural resources (water, energy, land, soil, animals, plants, biodiversity, ecosystems, etc); (b) selecting renewable energy sources (wind, solar, etc) at every stage, and (c) maximizing repair, remake, reuse, and upcycling of the product and its components. In practice, this implies continuous work to improve all stages of the product’s life cycle, from design, raw material production, manufacturing, transport, storage, marketing and final sale, to use, reuse, repair, remake and recycling of the product and its components.

Sustainable fashion also means we work to improve working conditions for workers in the factories, transportation chain, and stores.
