I have always found the sustainable lifestyle community to be entirely welcoming and collaborative; I frequently ask questions or advice, and lean on those who are more knowledgeable for answers. One of those people is Summer of tortoise and lady grey who is a wealth of knowledge about slow fashion and textiles. If you are looking for a way to improve the sustainability of your current and future wardrobe, I urge you to sign up for her 20 Day Sustainable Fashion Challenge. The new year is the perfect time to improve the way you approach dressing and buying.
The 20 Day Sustainable Fashion Challenge will guide you through...an easily digestible but comprehensive introduction to sustainable fashion, enabling you to confidently approach your wardrobe in a way that takes care of the earth and fits within your budget.
Each day for twenty days you will receive an email from Summer explaining the day's challenge. Go at your own pace and don't worry if you fall behind. You'll begin the challenge by evaluating your own knowledge and habits so that you can move in a direction that is complementary to your style. Once you've defined your style, you will audit your existing wardrobe and make decisions about unwanted items. Summer provides excellent resources for repairing, restyling, or repurposing existing items you want to keep. I appreciated the reminder to mend my items and found motivation to tend to my growing pile with Summer's encouragement.
Once you've dealt with your existing wardrobe, you'll move on to budgeting and learning about sustainability factors to consider for your future purchases. Armed with information, a budget, and a plan you'll feel confident shopping for the items you need to complete your new sustainable wardrobe.
Planning ahead helps to ensure that you are in a position to make sustainable choices about your garments.
As I progressed through the challenge, I appreciated the personal support that Summer provided. She will offer advice, is open to your questions, and would love for you to share your difficulties and triumphs. Don't hesitate to reach out to her and the community under the #20daysustfashion hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
If you'd like guidance, encouragement, and resources for building a sustainable wardrobe, I urge you to sign up for tortoise and lady grey's 20 Day Sustainable Fashion Challenge. You will benefit both from Summer's expertise and from the community she is nurturing.
