    What is Sustainable Fashion?

    Sustainable fashion means making clothes in a way that is good for the planet and fair for people. It focuses on using materials and methods that don't harm the environment and ensuring workers are treated well.

    It may sound intimidating, but sustainable fashion doesn’t have to be difficult! Check out these simple ways to make more sustainable choices. 

    Sustainable fashion is about:

    • Environment: Using materials and methods that don't harm nature.
    • Social Responsibility: Treating workers fairly and ensuring safe working conditions.
    • Economic Viability: Supporting fair prices for both producers and consumers.
    • Cultural Significance: Preserving traditional crafts and promoting diversity in fashion.

    Sustainable Fashion News

    Recently, more people are talking about sustainable fashion. Many brands are starting to use recycled materials, promote second-hand clothing, and improve working conditions for factory workers. They are even critiquing fast fashion on SNL!

    Fast Fashion vs. Sustainable Fashion

    Fast fashion is about making cheap clothes quickly to keep up with the latest trends. This often leads to poor quality, waste, and bad working conditions. Need more reasons not to shop Shein?

    Sustainable fashion, on the other hand, focuses on making high-quality clothes that last longer, using eco-friendly materials, and ensuring fair wages and safe workplaces for workers.

     Sustainable Fashion Trends

    Some current trends in sustainable fashion are:

    • Upcycling and Recycling: Turning old clothes into new items or using recycled materials to make new clothes.
    • Eco-friendly Fabrics: Using materials like organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo.
    • Minimalism: Buying fewer, better-quality items that last longer and never go out of style.
    • Transparency: Brands sharing information about how and where their clothes are made.
    • Circular Fashion: Creating clothes that can be reused, repaired, and recycled to reduce waste.

    Recycled Sustainable Fashion

    Recycled sustainable fashion involves making new clothes from recycled materials, like plastic bottles or old garments. This helps reduce waste and the need for new raw materials, which is better for the environment. Brands like Patagonia and Adidas are leading the way by using recycled materials in their products. Jackalo often uses deadstock fabrics that have been left over from other brands and would otherwise be thrown away.
