SUSTAINABILITY OF VINTAGE
Working in fashion, I became aware of environmental pollution and waste involved in the manufacture and distribution of new clothing. 'Fast fashion" has become a process we often ignore but the environmental costs are high and it creates a throwaway culture.
We use 2,700 litres of precious water to make one cotton shirt. Not to mention the number of plastics and fossil fuels we use to create and individually wrap products which often end up in landfill and our oceans. Insecticides and pesticides, dyes and chemicals create water pollution and stress on the land and garment workers are often paid little for their labour.
Purchasing a pre-loved item not only saves you money, but it also helps to reduce our carbon footprint, relieving pressures on our worlds natural resources.
Fashion shouldn’t have to cost the earth. Be wise. Be Vintagearian.
