We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we’ll be working with Love Your Clothes on a number of exciting projects on the way. To get things started, here’s an introduction to who they are and what they do!
Introduction to Love Your Clothes
Love Your Clothes helps inspire and influence people to make small changes to reduce the impact of clothing on the environment. We work with a number of retailers, brands, charities, local authorities, and recyclers to encourage people to think about the clothes they buy, how to look after them and keep them in use for longer, and to keep all clothing out of the bin!
Love Your Clothes always encourage people to ‘buy smart’. This simply means thinking about what you’re buying before you buy it. For instance, choosing to buy clothing that’s more durable or that is easy to look after.
Opting to buy preloved clothes is a great way of refreshing your wardrobe. Plus, you can get a new look at a fraction of high street prices.
We also like to urge people to have a go at de-cluttering their wardrobes. On average, 30% of what’s in our wardrobes has not been worn for over a year. So, we’re holding on to a lot of clothes that could be reused by selling, donating or being passed on.
There are so many benefits to having a good declutter. Not only does it help to breathe new life into your wardrobe, you’ll also feel good knowing your clothes haven’t ended up in landfill and have instead gone on to be loved by someone else. Remember, one person’s unwanted item of clothing is another person’s treasure!
