RE-USE YOUR GARMENT: WEAR OFTEN AND GIVE IT AWAY TO OTHERS WHEN YOU NO LONGER USE IT

 

 

 

Aftercare of your clothes has a great impact on both the longevity of garments and our environment. Here's our advice to help you make better conscious choices:

  • Re-think before you wash your garment and reduce your environmental footprint by washing less – it will also make your garment last longer. Try airing and brushing more instead.

  • Wash your garment at low temperature with a gentle cycle and low spin washing programme – it will help save energy and make your clothes equally clean.

  • Leave your washing out to dry instead of tumble drying.

  • Choose an eco-friendly laundry detergent and avoid using fabric conditioners.

  • Use a laundry bag for delicate materials such as viscose, silk and wool and the garment will last longer. Furthermore, turn the garment inside out when washing to avoid pilling.

  • Don't wash your denim. Instead, put them in the freezer for a day or two to kill bacteria, and air them.

  • If you use a dry-cleaner, choose an environmentally-friendly option in order to reduce toxicity and CO2 emissions.

  • When you no longer have a use for clothes, give them to an organisation that can extend the garment’s life and let someone else enjoy it.
