Want to create a more sustainable wardrobe?

For fashion aficionados it can be hard to know where to begin when trying to be a little more eco-friendly. But this Earth Day we’re here to help with some tips to consider before your next trip to one of our Villages.


Buy less, buy better

Crafting a conscious wardrobe begins with investing in a few timeless pieces. Think Longchamp's iconic bag, offering signature accessories crafted from recycled textile, or a premium chino from BOSS made with responsible cotton. Look for classic, versatile pieces ensuring longevity in your wardrobe. By choosing pieces designed to be worn for years to come, you’ll not only be helping the planet but your pockets, too.

Bag a sustainable brand

While every new piece of clothing introduced into the world has an impact, certain brands are reshaping the narrative by minimising their footprint. Look for those pioneers (or certified B-corps) committed to sustainable and ethical practices. From The North Face's recycled materials to Essentiel Antwerp's limited collections, these brands are at the forefront of the movement.

Seek out indicators like low-impact materials, adoption of innovative production processes and commitment to fair labour practices – these signify a brand’s dedication. Making conscientious fashion choices becomes significantly easier once you’ve done the due diligence.

Know your fabrics

It’s important to invest in better quality pieces – that means getting to know how your clothes are made. Opt for collections steeped in eco-efficient practices, like ASICS’ FFblast eco-material and adidas sneakers made from recycled ocean plastic. Beyond footwear, consider Samsonite luggage and fashion essentials from Tommy Hilfiger, incorporating recycled materials and innovative production methods.

Extend the life of your clothing

Once you’ve curated a wardrobe to love forever, take the time to give it some TLC, whether that’s a cleaning service or professional restoration on older buys. By treating your wardrobe to a sartorial spa session, you’re giving it a longer lifespan.

You can also breathe new life into old clothes by tailoring and upcycling things – adding months, if not years, onto some of your favourite wardrobe staples.


Refill revolution

Why not make your beauty refresh a sustainable endeavour as well? Leading the charge are beauty brands such as L’Occitane en Provence, L’Oréal and The Cosmetics Company Store, which offer refillable bath, body and hair products, along with a high percentage of recycled packaging. Plus, Rituals encourages eco-friendly purchases by planting a tree for every refillable product purchased through their give-back initiative.
