Let's cut to the chase. It isn't always easy knowing what to do, where to buy, etc..
But this post is going to be quick and to the point!
Here are three ways you can support sustainable fashion:
Buy second-hand clothing
One of the easiest ways to support sustainable fashion is by purchasing clothing that has already been used. Not only does this reduce the demand for new clothing, but it also keeps clothes out of landfills. Websites like eBay, Poshmark, and ThredUp make it easy to find gently used clothing that is still in great condition.
Buy quality clothes
Rather of spending your money on fast fashion's "disposable-after-a-few-uses" items, invest in classic, high-quality pieces. Not only will you save money in the long-run, but you'll also be doing your part to slow the rate at which the fashion industry pumps out new garments.
Support brands that have integrated sustainable practices
Supporting brands that are actively working to improve their environmental impact is another important step in promoting sustainable fashion. If you're shopping for a brand, try to choose one that doesn't skimp on quality and integrates environmentally conscious behaviors. Keep in mind that there are many independent designers out there who are making strides toward creating eco-friendly apparel that you may help with a purchase.
If a brand is doing something about sustainability, you will find it on their website. If they do not even discuss the topic, buy with EXTREME CAUTION!
