3 ways you could be nicer to the planet with your fashion choices
So yes, many of us love the malls - online or offline! All those new stuff going on discounts - who can resist?
Especially with Raya coming up - soooooo many things to buy, so little time! But with all this hoo haa over buying the most glamorous do for the big day, have you ever thought about the impact our shopping decisions have on the environment?
Here's 3 ways you can be nicer to our dear mother earth.
1. Make the better choice!
What do you do when faced with a pile of past season clothes that you no longer fit on your bedroom floor? Isn't it annoying to have to deal with things you don't even want anymore - especially when you've paid a lot for these items?
Truth is, the things we buy will have to end up somewhere. Every single item we purchase, whether it's fashion items, gadgets, furniture etc, we need to get rid of one day. One thing we can do while shopping is to make a conscious choice to buy reuseable items so we're reducing our impact on the planet when we need to get rid of it.
Buy window glasses made from recycled glass, shop at stores that use recycled materials for their shopping bags and best of all - why not buy like-new items? We absolutely love thrift stores!
So you've tried everything? Tried to list it on different websites, even sneakily tried to donate the bad ones?
Why not recycle it? You can even do it yourself! Youtube has tonssss of videos you can check out to upccyle some of your clothes. Make bags from your dresses, and cushion covers from your coats. Anything is possible when you're the designer! Be creative.
No time to sew? Forward it to a recycling center or donate to us so we can upcycle them.
3. SELL, SELL, SELL!
Hey, if you've spent some money on it, why not make a percentage of it back? There are many conscious shoppers out there who love to reuse clothes as a fashion statement! We love people who recycle their style or shop the items at our store. Sell to us.
