FASHION SUSTAINABILITY; AND HOW DRESS HIRE IS A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR THE MODERN CONSUMER
We all love a bargain, right? But what if I told you that someone out there is footing the bill, just so you can have a new outfit every week – without breaking the bank?
Even though you may have paid $50 for the dress you will wear once, only to toss away at the end of the season, the seamstress who put your look together only makes $1 per day costing her a decent wage, and the fabric that your dress was made from – was dyed unethically – costing us our clean, safe environment.
The perils of Fast Fashion are becoming more prevalent and there are so many ways we can reduce our impact, because supply meets demand – and if there is no demand, there will be no need to over supply!
You can start your journey to a cleaner future here, at The Style Reform. By hiring or renting designer, one – off styles you are;
- Not contributing to Fast Fashion as designer pieces may carry a higher price tag but this generally means they were created or sourced in an ethical manner.
- Reducing waste and landfill by returning the items you wear – not just wearing them once or twice and disposing of them when they are out of season.
We also ship all orders in 100% biodegradable shipping satchels. These beauties are home compostable or can be popped straight into your green bin! No plastic waste that will take forever to break down in landfill.
We can no longer stick our heads in the sand when it comes to the detrimental impacts of the fashion industry. Here at The Style Reform are dedicated to minimising our impact on the environment and to promoting and educating our customer on the best ways to step out in style while being mindful of your ecological footprint.
