ECO-TIP 14: BUY FEWER CLOTHES

Every year, thousands of pounds of clothing make their way to landfills? Why? Because we buy more clothes than we actually need and more clothes than we actually wear. Think about your own wardrobe - do you wear most of your clothes regularly? Do you have items of clothing buried in the depths of your closet and drawers that you've completely forgotten about? Statistically, people in Britain wear just 70% of the clothes they have stored away in their wardrobes, which leaves us with a total of 1.7 billion unused items!

So the next time you think you need new clothes, dive into your wardrobe first. If you have extra clothes, donate them to charity shops rather than throwing them into landfill. Ultimately, only buy items you really need and preferably buy them from second-hand! Let's reduce the impact that fashion has on our environment!
