This week at Ireland’s Classic Hits Radio we’ve been looking at the sustainable clothing industry. 


10 simple steps to being more sustainable with your clothes….

  1. Educate yourself

The most invaluable first step is to do your research brands that operate with a sustainably-focused mind.


  1. Go far beyond the 30 wears test

  1. Invest in trans-seasonal clothes


  1. Look after your clothes so they last longer


  1. Donate your unwanted clothes


  1. Adapt your attitude to shopping

  1. Invest in quality over quantity


  1. When buying new, adjust how you spend your money

  1. Learn how to repair clothes yourself (or find a good tailor)


  1. Change your perspective, and stick to it
