Simple Ways To Love Your Clothes Longer in 2022
A List of Simple Ways to Love Your Clothes Longer in 2022❤️
1. Vote with your purchases
Where you choose to spend your money really does have an impact. As much as possible try to shop at places aligned with your values and prioritise both people and planet, not just profit.
2. Less is More
Did you know that the average American purchases 68 items of clothing every single year?! When you are tempted buying new items for the holidays, consider renting or investing in a planet friendly brand instead of an impulse buy.
3. Repair things when the break!
This small act can elongate the items you have in your wardrobe and reduce ht overall impact they have on the planet. If you don't fancy fixing them yourself, you can use services like Sojo who collect and delivery your items right from your door.
4. Keep Dry Cleaning To A minimum
Dry cleaning is very energy and water intensive. If you are looking for a dry cleaning pressed finish, try investing in a steamer instead! Steaming is a much less aggressive way to remove creases from your clothes than ironing. If you don't own a steamer, try hanging your clothes in the bathroom while you have a hot shower.
5. Keep special clothing and shoes in dust bags
This is a great way to maintain the special items in your life for longer, storing in dust bags will help keep them safer for longer and avoid moths, scuffs and general wearing!
