Fast fashion, cheap clothing made in giant factories, is has detrimental affects on both the environment and economy. Workers face unethical conditions, garments are fabricated using low-quality, plastic-based materials, and factories waste water and create CO2 emissions. Many people – like you – are looking to make the shift to a sustainable capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe involves investing in fewer timeless, high-quality pieces instead of trendy, cheap clothing. In the long run, this saves you money, minimizes environmental impacts of fast fashion, and allows you to treat yourself to higher-quality, clothing.
However, it is not realistic to expect you to throw out everything in your closet and start from scratch; that would get expensive very quickly! Here is how you can build a sustainable capsule wardrobe.
