Posted by Petra Orrenius on

Our Industry is ranked as a major source of pollution in the world. I am happy to work with brands that really trying to have more Eco friendly fashion items- everything from organic cotton to recycled polyester. 

5 eco-friendly fashion tips to help make your wardrobe more green.

Wash with Love

Buy green laundry detergent. To save energy, wash on low heat and line dry outside in our beautiful Australian sun.

Buy vintage

Buying secondhand and reduce your global footprint. For gently-used designer wares, check out sites like https://restylecloset.com.au/ and www.yordrobe.com.au

Buy local

Aside from supporting your community, buying locally reduces environmental impact because local businesses can make local purchases, thereby decreasing transportation pollution. Plus, independent businesses are typically small enterprises, so they take up less land and resources.

Look after your clothes and Invest in your shoes

The more you take care of your shoes, the longer they’ll last. Less consumption and waste. As soon as you unwrap your new pair of shoes, take them to a shoe repair shop to add on heel covers and toe treads, so you won’t damage the bottom of your shoes. When the protective covers wear through, it’s time for another visit. Same goes for broken heels, cuts, holes and fades. 

Know your fabrics

Bamboo, silk, organic cotton, soy, hemp  are just a few of the natural, eco-friendly fabrics on the market
