Our Damage To The World
You can’t turn on the news or scroll through social media without seeing pictures of animals who have lost their homes to deforestation or whales that are being washed to the shore with plastic bags in their stomachs. While there’s no doubt about the fact that our everyday ventures are damaging the world, most people don’t realize that the fashion world is also doing that. From using unsustainable materials to the pollution caused by the transportation of clothing across the world, the fashion footprint is huge. This is why we are trying to be more sustainable as a society.
Creating A New System
The whole idea behind sustainable fashion is to make people aware of what is going on but also to create a new system where people can wear stylish clothes without having a huge impact on the world. We want to create a system that can be supported in terms of our human impact, and keep our ecosystems and our fashion choices in the mix. There are many ways to do this, so you don’t need to worry too much. You just need to take a little more time to think about what you’re doing when you buy new clothes.
Asking Yourself Some Questions
One of the best ways to be more sustainable in terms of your buying options is to ask yourself some questions. More than anything, you need to ask yourself whether you’re going to wear a particular item more than 30 times. If the answer is no, experts suggest that you shouldn’t buy it at all. Getting usage out of your clothing is paramount because a huge number of garments make their way to landfill every single year when they could be used or donated instead.
