Waste Less, Live More: The Slow-Down on Fast Fashion 🧥👖👚
▪️ An estimated £30billion worth of clothes hanging in UK wardrobes have never been worn.
▪️ 36% of us admit to owning clothes we have never worn.
▪️ 10,000 items of clothing are sent to landfill every five minutes.
▪️ It takes around 1,800 gallons of water to make a single pair of jeans.
The average lifespan of clothing is just over three years, but wearing something for an extra nine months can reduce its #carbonfootprint by 20-30%!
Here's our top tips to a timeless wardrobe:
✅ Shop at charity shops
✅ Attend a clothes swapping event
✅ Raid your nan’s wardrobe
✅ Build a #capsulewardrobe
✅ Always go for #qualitynotquantity and 'buy to last'
