Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

There is an increasing
awareness about sustainability amongst consumers. Keeping the same in mind,
manufacturers have understood the fact that style and ethics can be compatible.
They offer organic pieces that can be re-made and those that are made from local
raw materials. It also encourages consumers to think seriously about the
products they choose to buy. Here are a few important tips to shop sustainably.

Look out for plastic on the label
The biggest issue that this
planet is facing is single-use plastic. You might not be aware that plastic has
become a part of our clothes in the form of fibers. It is difficult to avoid
them and many include activewear because they are
made entirely from plastic. However, there are a number of lines offering natural
fiber alternatives that are ideal for your use. Hence, if you notice the
plastic on the label, it is better left out.

2.     Choose
There are many sources of
vintage fashion that offer you the best purchases. You simply need to look at
the right places. Head to vintage shops to find amazing clothes in good
condition. Vintage is something that never goes out of style. You can also find
high-quality vintage on which offers some great options for you to choose from.
Vintage is something you treasure and take care of.

var mnSrc = (isSSL ? ‘https:’ : ‘http:’) + ‘//’ + (isSSL ? ‘&https=1’ : ”);

3.    Shop less but
Try to invest in a few
pieces and avoid the flash-in-the-pan trend. Half of your clothing will be
discarded in less than a year. This leads to excessive garbage and landfills
burn about one garbage full of the truck of clothes every second. Instead, shop
less and look for items you love and are actually going to use. Pick pieces
that make you feel confident and are easy to style.

4.    Reconsider
your beauty choices
When you choose organic
products, you leave out silicone from your routine. Silicone is basically a
plastic that is put into
beauty products to
make it go further and to produce exceptional results. However, it does more
harm to your face than you can imagine. The best thing you can do is look for
products that have simple ingredients and are organic. You might have to shell
out a little extra for organic products but it will be worth it.

5.   Consider
The best option to shop
sustainably is to upcycle. You can use your clothes and revive them into
something unique and wonderful. There is immense material on earth that there
is no requirement to create new material. Only if you know how to use the
resources, you will be able to make the most of them.

The power is in your hands
and it is up to you to decide where to spend your money. There are a number of
options you can consider but choosing sustainability over everything else will
ensure that you make the right choice for yourself and the earth as a whole.

We have a small favor to ask. People are reading the Haute Lifestyle than ever since our recent placement in the South Florida Blogger Awards but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. We do not have investors and everything Blog related is funded out of pocket– we want to keep our journalism as fun and open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Our article takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective and voices matter – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our posts, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure.
