Reuse, Repair, Recycle, Repeat.
Extend the life of your garments.
Read the care labels.
Different materials need different care. Pay attention to care labels on your clothing and footwear. They provide important information about washing, drying, and ironing instructions specific to the fabric or material.
Jeans, sweaters, and other items that aren't visibly soiled can often be worn multiple times before needing a wash. Tip: Denim gets better with age so next time look for a second-hand pair of jeans.
Care for natural fibers.
Natural fibers like wool and silk require special care. Hand wash or use the delicate cycle with cold water and mild detergent. Avoid wringing or twisting to prevent stretching.
Use a stain removal pen.
Keep a stain remover pen in your bag for dealing with those pesky stains you didn't ask for – it's like a superhero for your clothes.
Pick up some basic mending skills.
Instead of throwing away your clothes, learn a new skill. Sew loose buttons, mend small holes and buy a cashmere comb for your delicate items to prolong their life in your wardrobe.
Give your shoes some regular cleaning love.
Make sure to clean your shoes often to stop dirt and stains from getting comfy. Use a soft brush or cloth to wipe off dirt and a suitable cleaner for more stubborn stains.
Top priority: give your clothes a good clean before stashing them away. Level up your hanger game and opt for quality ones. When hanging, go for wooden or cushioned hangers to keep your pieces in shape. Pop your shoes and bags into dust bags – a smart move to shield them from dirt and keep them nice and dry.
Rotate your wardrobe.
Let your clothes, shoes, and accessories take turns. Swap them out every so often. When you switch things up, you're giving them a longer lifespan by easing up on the wear and tear
Upcycle what you've got.
Let your inner design guru shine and spruce up an old pair of sneakers with new colorful laces or decorate an old jacket with accessories that reflect your personality.
Recycle what you don't wear.
Keep your pre-loved clothes in use and out of the landfill by finding a recycling station that will sustainably manage the process for you.

Tempted to buy new?
Here are a few tips to consider to help you shop smarter and more consciously.
Is the product you’re looking for available second hand? Remember that you can always buy pre-loved and extend the life cycle of already existing products. Find brands that offer pre-loved items here.
If you don’t find what you’re looking for second hand, ask yourself if you already have something at home that can serve the same purpose.
If you’re buying clothes, do you have pieces at home that go with the new garment or would this item only lead to more buys?
Is it a timeless product that you’ll be able to use for years? Remember, items live longer than trends.
