I am delighted to see so many new initiatives springing up which can help us to not only be more sustainable with our clothing but also look super stylish at the same time.
It is a community site which allows you to share your style, find out about where to buy ethical fashion and access services that prolong the life of your wardrobe and connect with like minded individuals. You can ask for advice, give advice and rate and review shops. If you get thanked for nay of the questions that you answer, you will get tokens which you can use to donate to one of the sites chosen charities.
You can also find out more about the Sew it Forward Campaign. The idea is to slow consumption by encouraging people to share or learn sewing skills. If you live in London, you can pledge your skills to help someone learn a new skill. I really love the idea of their gift voucher as an alternative to expensive, sometimes un-wanted and wasteful presents at Christmas. You can download it from the website (link above) and then fill it in with the skill that you can teach them and that will help them to prolong the life of their clothes and save money.
I have already posted a few questions and answers on the forum and am feeling motivated to get on and sort out some of those unworn items of clothing in my wardrobe. Is anyone else joining?
I hope you are having a good week . Christmas is creeping up on me far too quick, I haven’t even written my Christmas cards yet and about to be swept up into a whirlwind of Christmas plays and carol concerts (for the children) and parties (for me). Not complaining though, I have a horrendous cough that seems to be going on for weeks and I definitely think plenty of mulled wine would do me some good! Do you have any fun Christmassy stuff going on?
With warmest wishes
