Resale revolution – Growing fashion trend
Join us in our mission to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle by shopping and consigning your clothing at Dress To The 9’s Consignment Boutique. You can still be fashionable without hurting the environment. Did you know that 85% of all clothing ends up in landfills? And that 95% of that clothing can be reused and recycled?
When clothes end up in landfills, they create greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. The fashion industry produces an estimated 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions. The production and distribution of the crops, fibers and garments used in fashion all contribute to differing forms of environmental pollution, including water, air, and soil degradation.
The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the U.S. after oil and gas. Not to mention, fashion production uses over 79 trillion liters of water each year.
Five Tips to Reduce Clothing Waste:
- Buy less and keep clothes longer
- Buy second hand
- Invest in sustainable brands if you can
- Stay away from big oil’s fabrics, such as acrylic, nylon, polyester, spandex (please read about them)
- Repurpose old clothes (sell or donate – do not throw away)
If everyone bought one used item this year, it would save 5.7 billion pounds of carbon emissions or the equivalent of taking half a million cars off the road for an entire year.
