October month will be all about slow fashion and sustainable fashion here on the blog. I will share my best tips on how to build a more long-lasting closet and how to slow down your fashion cycle, as well as which materials are the most sustainable and how you properly take care of your clothes.
There are so many ways you can be mindful with your closet, but it can be a jungle of information and certifications and whatnot for the normal consumer. It’s hard to be a conscious consumer and most companies are not making it any easier. Hopefully, governments will take the responsibility off of the consumers’ shoulders in the future by implementing stricter environmental and labor laws and be tougher on companies that greenwash, but until then it is free for companies to do as they please. So the only way to get around it, for now, is to do your research, and hope to be of help there!
So what will I practically do this month?
- Obviously not buy anything since I’m on a shopping ban (this is probably the most efficient way of slowing down your closet!)
- Mend any items that need mending (even though I think my mom recently fixed most of mine)
- Fix any garments that aren’t working (like cropping pants that are too long or tailoring things that don’t fit well)
- Sell any items not being used enough (because why should they take up space in my closet and mind?)
- Do a care day for garments (get rid of any lint or spots on my garments, take care of my leather bags and shoes)
Do you have any questions or problems on the topic of slow or sustainable fashion you would like me to bring up this month?
