The society’s desire to protect the environment has increased in recent years. Climate change has shown that individuals, companies and governments alike must take decisions to reduce the impact of human beings on the planet. Awareness of leaving a better world for future generations is already part of life in contemporary societies.
There are many actions being carried out in the different social and economic sectors. But, what can we do about the clothes we usually wear or the clothes we find in shops in our cities? An example of that is that you can bet on not buying clothes from the fast fashion current, whose claim is that consumers buy clothes considered of “wear and throw away” due to their lifetime, quality, etc.
Circular fashion is applied by many fashion companies that work with environmentally friendly fabrics, reuse fibres that would have ended in landfills or extend through the time its collections and trends to go in line with slow fashion.
Circular economy and used clothing
While it’s true that it would be very radical to open our closets and throw away all clothes that don’t respect the environment, we can make the decision to buy new fashion that helps us to protect the planet. It’s also good to investigate product labels and see what manufacturing process do they have. Another viable option is to look for clothing brands that already work the circular economy and, if we like, buy fashion manufactured following the patterns of the circular economy.
Changes are always costly and more and more if we have a routine that lasts many years. But by opting for circular fashion and sustainability, we use more durable products over time, even reused and recycled, and add our grain of sand to the conservation of the natural environment around us.
