If I ever need to buy clothes or home interior stuff I like to find it in second hand or vintage shops! Because I think we need to be more conscious of what we buy & where its from. We need to be more aware of the effects its has on the environment. Because today we are consuming so much on new clothes & to manufacture clothes is not very good for our planet. The amount of chemicals & water that its used is scary. I 'm working on to become more conscious & aware of what I buy. I want to be more of a minimalist & not own to much clothes & stuff. Because I find that I don't really need so much. So Ive been trying to recycle my clothes & if I want something I been trying look for it in second hand shops!
The good thing is there are plenty of ways we can reduce the burden on our planet and our pockets, and easily at that. Some tips & solutions for you to be more conscious & find alternative ways!
1. Wear out your clothes we often don't wear our clothes for along time as we can. But think how much money you will save on not buying something you already have! If you are buying New clothes try to look for brands that is Eco friendly & has sustainable materials!
1.Clean out your closet often! maybe you don't need 10 sweatshirts, maybe 3 is enough! if you ever find it hard to get rid of it put it away for a couple of weeks & if you don't use them maybe you don't need to keep them!
2.DonateWhen you have cleaned out your closet, if the clothes are in good condition you can give it away, donate & recycle them in a store or have your own yard sale & earn a little money! there are plenty of good apps were you can sale your clothes! Donate it to people that are in need of some clothes.
3.Swap with your friendsIts so good to exchange clothes with your friends, if they want to get rid of something or if you want to do the same! Its all about keeping the recycle circle in motion!
