Here are five things you can do to minimize your impact and prolong the life of your wardrobe favorites.
LOOK FOR GREEN GARMENTS
All fabrics release microfibers in the wash. The problem is that microfibers in synthetic fabric are not biodegradable. These plastic fibers eventually end up in our oceans traveling up the food chain. So in the long run, organic materials are not only better for the global environment, but for all living creatures including you.
Garments with high quality and long-lasting design are essential for building a sustainable wardrobe. Sooner or later when the little ones outgrow their clothes, a good piece of garment is always wanted by someone else.
REPAIR AND REWEAR
Give your garment a second chance by covering stubborn stains or holes with leftover fabric or patches. When it’s time to say goodbye – recycle, resell or donate your garments to an organization.
We sell repair patches and you are welcome to drop by one of our stores or contact our customer service for extra buttons and other trimmings.
WASH WITH CARE
For many garments, the laundry bag is not the place to be. Hang your clothes on a rack and let the air do its magic. Remove smaller stains with natural basics from your kitchen, such as white vinegar, baking soda, and lemon, and only wash your garments when needed.
Break a pattern and set the standard for future generations. Ask brands about their sustainability work and support the frontrunners.
