STEPS TO MAKE YOUR WARDROBE ETHICAL
The first step is simple – google some websites about an ethical lifestyle, read about brands that take care of their workers, the environment and social effects of their industry. Just dive into this eco-movement.
But buying something new isn’t the next step.
You already have many pairs of jeans, t-shirts, boots, jackets and so on. To make an ethical waredrobe you should take care of these things and repair them when you can.
When you need something new, look for things that you have but don’t remember or your friends and relatives don’t need.
It’s also cool to visit garage sales or even have one yourself. It’s like a party but with great benefits for everyone. Some people get cheap but nice clothes and the other gets rid of unused clothes and makes some money.
Alternatively, go to a second-hand or a vintage shop.
You can find many interesting brands and unique things that nobody else has, right on the high street.
If you want to buy something new, choose only what you really love and focus on high-quality and durable pieces.
It’s obviously better to buy one good thing instead of many low-quality items that will serve you for only a few months.
So, invest in well-made basics that will match with most of the clothes you already have.
Buy timeless, not trendy.
And always consider who made your clothes.
