This year's WED theme is "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care", and most readers will know, ethical and sustainable consumerism is encouraged and fully supported on Recycled Fashion.
It doesn't take much to help reduce consumption when it comes to fashion, such as:
* Support and buy recycled, and / or environmentally friendly recycled products and companies that sell such wares.
* Getting rid of your old by passing onto others such as holding a garage sale or market stall; your trash could be someone else’s treasure and you’ll make some extra cash, too.
* Alternatively, donate your old clothing to your local op shop or charity organisation.
* Get crafty and creative, by making your own jewellery and clothes out of existing materials. Something old can become new again with a few updates, and you will be able to ware something that is unique to you.
