4 WAYS TO BUILD
AN ETHICAL CLOSET
NEED A NEW PAIR OF LEGGINGS FOR YOUR WORKOUT BUT DON'T HAVE MONEY TO BUY SOMETHING FROM AN ETHICAL BRAND? NO WORRIES! NO MATTER YOUR BUDGET IS, YOU CAN BUILD YOUR OWN ETHICAL CLOSET. THERE ARE FOUR DIFFERENT WAYS TO BUILD YOUR CLOSET MADE BY ETHICAL FASHION ACTIVEWEAR. EVERY LITTLE HELPS!
1. VALUE AND TAKE GOOD CARE OF THE CLOTHES YOU ALREADY OWN
Every ton of discarded textiles reused saves 20 tonnes of CO2, from entering the atmosphere. It takes 2720 litres of water to make a fast-fashion T-shirt. That's how much we normally drink over a 3 year period. You need more reasons?
If we will extend the life of our clothing by a further 9 months, we would reduce carbon, waste and water footprint by around 20 or 30% each.
2. SHOP LESS, CHOOSE BETTER
Only buy pieces you love 100%. Clothes and textiles are the first source of primary micro-plastic to the oceans and seas, accounting for 34.8% of the global total. If you choose better your clothes you can change this. Buy pieces that you will love this month, this year and the follower year.
3. GO FOR CLOTHES (SPECIALLY ACTIVEWEAR) THAT ARE HIGH QUALITY, COMFY AND DURABLE
Global clothing production has more than doubles since 2000. In 2014, we have a100 billion garments, and we have to stop it. There's a HUGE pressure on natural resources. That's clear: it's a must-have choose the right pieces, with good quality and high-end fabrics and garments. At SPORT.LES we designers HAVE TO BE ethically run, with the highest quality standards and practices. The process and location where the garments are produced is a determining factor when choosing to partner with designers. We only choose the right ones.
