Support Small Business -- Shop Sustainably

-- Shopping secondhand reduces the demand for new clothes and,

in turn, slows down the production of new apparel.

                -- Pre-loved clothes get a second life in a new closet instead                        of being buried in a landfill.

-- Supporting vintage can make a big difference in the fashion industry's environmental impact. 

FASHION INDUSTRY FACTS

  • The fashion industry is responsible for 10% of humanity's carbon emissions. That's more that international flights and maritime shipping combined.

  • Not only is the fashion industry the second largest consumer of water, it is also responsible for 20% of all industrial water pollution.

  • About 85% of textile waste in the United States goes into landfills or is incinerated. That's a dumpster full of textiles every second.

  • 35% of microplastic pollution in the oceans comes from textile production.
