Designers and manufacturers clearly have environmental responsibilities to uphold and so do consumers. Fortunately, getting a green wardrobe is easier than you think.

Shop your own closet

Instead of purchasing a new outfit from the mall, make what you already have look new again. Use your creativity to mix old items and accessories together in fresh, new ways. If you know how to sew, the possibilities are endless. Cut up old shirts and piece them together to make a new skirt or jacket. Have fun and be creative.

Be a thrifty shopper

Save money and avoid waste at the same time by shopping for gently used clothing items. Although thrift shops are most ideal for this type of shopping, many online sites, including eBay,sell used clothing.

Get to know eco-friendly brands

What brands do you shop for? Today, high-end designers like Stella McCartney and Loomstate are supporting sustainable fashion. Likewise, more affordable options include popular chain H & M, which is committed to responsibly using the planet's resources to manufacture its clothing. Buy brands that support eco-fashion.

Become an environmental activist by starting with your closet. Dress green every day!

设计师与制造商显然要负起环保责任,但消费者也责无旁贷。好在,让自己衣橱里的衣服全都符合环保并不如想像中困难。

替衣橱旧换新(译注:原意为在自家衣橱里添购新装)

与其到购物中心买新衣,不如先把原有的衣服改头换面一番。发挥创意,把旧衣跟饰品用创新的方式重新混搭。要是你会裁缝,更可以千变万化。可以把旧T恤剪掉,再拼凑出新的裙子或外套。享受乐趣,发挥创意。

当个节俭的购物者

购买状况良好的二手衣,不但省钱,同时也能避免浪费。二手货商店虽然最适合这种购物方式,但如eBay等许多网站,也都有贩售二手衣物。

认识环保的时尚品牌

你都买什么牌子的衣服? 如今高级服装设计师如史黛拉·麦卡尼与Loomstate都支持永续环保时尚。同样地,如流行连锁店H&M等一般人也能负担得起的平价产品,也致力于负责任地善用地球资源来生产衣服。购买主张环保时尚的品牌吧。

当个保护环境的活跃分子,就从自己的衣橱开始, 每天把环保穿上身吧!
