Freedom In Simplicity
When you make a clothing purchase it's a vote for the ethics of the brand you are buying from. As an apparel company, we are aware of the waste that unwanted clothing creates and sensitive to our place and role in the planet’s ecosystem and that’s why we promote thoughtful consumption. One of the best places to start simplifying is in your closet. It's all about simplicity minimalism!
Here's an easy way to streamline your wardrobe:
Over the next month, each time you wear an item, hang it back up turning the hanger around. After one month donate what you haven’t used.🙌
P.S. In the future consider the purpose of a piece of clothing before it is allowed a spot in your wardrobe. Can you wear it day to night to work to weekend? Can you dress it up and down? Can you mix and match it with many items you already use?
There are many benefits to a streamlined wardrobe such as simplifying, fewer decisions to make when getting dressed, more quality clothing, reducing carbon footprint ...
