- Above all else, reduce your consumption and avoid fast fashion.
- Shop at thrift stores, consignment stores, and used clothing apps like Depop, ThredUp, and Poshmark.
- If you do buy something new, look for manufactures that offer warranties.
- As your budget allows, try to opt for quality over quantity.
- Check out Good on You for brand ratings based on three factors: planet, people, and animals.
- Opt for natural fibers like cotton, hemp, and tencel over synthetic materials (polyester, nylon, spandex, etc.) which shed plastic fibers into the environment, especially when washing.
- Donate clothes to thrift stores. If it's too worn out for resale, put it in a fabric recycling bin. These can be found at some recycling centers.
