Greening Your Wardrobe
Following the basics, and starting from square one. As soon as your leave a room, switch off all lights, do not leave the television on stand-by mode. Try not to use sprays, or else use eco-friendly ones. Save water by taking a shower instead of a bath. Use public transport and car-pooling to become a source of saving the environment from the hazardous emissions from the car. Plant trees everywhere. Switch to a laptop from a desktop. All such apparently small measures need to be taken seriously.
Ethically produced clothes are referred to as green clothes, which are in high demand nowadays. However, it is not mandatory for one to go shopping if one decides to go green. Personal clothes of a person are considered as the greenest clothes.
No more materials collected, sewed, delivered, or bought. Old clothes cannot give you the satisfaction that new clothes would give, although if a little imagination is used, you might end up liking what you see. One could cut old shirts into tank tops, and caprice into skirts, and long skirts into short ones. One could even make a shirt look completely new by dyeing it with a planet-friendly dye. Clothes not requiring dry cleaning are green; clothes which do not require warm water and can be line dried. Although hard to find, attaining such clothes is not impossible, and they are sustainable over a long period.
Sustainable refers to the physical life of the clothing, as well as the fashion sense. Clothes, which can be worn for long, can keep their bright colors, and carry classic styles are preferred. Numerous designers are collecting used material to recycle and use for their latest styles. New clothes do not always have to be bought. Clothes which can be salvaged through opportunities are definitely better than the hand-me-downs belonging to our brothers and sisters.
The best part is that there is a large variety of styles available, so that the needs of everyone can be fulfilled. Boutiques selling pre-loved prestige labels are even present.
Not including the physical factors, which are obvious to some extent, green clothing also involves the workers who made them. Ethically responsible clothing refers to those clothes for which, we pay the fair price, and which do not involve harming or exploitation of laborers.
