How to take care of your clothes and make them last longer

loved clothes last

Over the past few years, I’ve been investing in higher quality clothing made of natural materials, and I’ve been taking better care of my clothing. I've come to appreciate each piece in my wardrobe and have embraced the routine maintenance that comes with nicer things. Here are a few things you can do to make sure your favorite pieces last for years to come. And some tips on how to find good quality clothing in the first place!

The trash we still make as zero wasters

trash we make as zero wasters

We have made such a difference by going zero waste, so why are we writing about what we still throw away? Because we think it's an important thing to talk about. So often, zero waste can seem like a competition, but we don't live in a perfect system, so none of us can be 100% zero waste. Isn't it better if we all share our struggles and the moments we could do better? Sharing our mistakes helps us zoom out and remember that we're all in this together. Our transparency helps encourage others that a low waste lifestyle is possible, even if it doesn't happen overnight.

A guide for low waste living, and where to start

How to start your zero waste journey

The zero waste lifestyle is all about simplifying your life by reducing your waste.  It’s a way to be kinder to the planet and your body through what you do, eat, buy, wear, and use everyday. Don't be intimidated by the word "zero" - it's more of a guiding force than a realistic end-point. This lifestyle doesn’t happen overnight, but it does start with a few simple changes. These are our top tips for getting closer to zero waste.
