This week on Ours to Protect Max visits Siopaella to discuss Sustainable Fashion.

Fast fashion is environmentally unsustainable with estimates suggesting that there is enough clothing in landfill to dress six generations.

Investing in quality, signature pieces that last longer leads to less waste.

Buying vintage clothes has many benefits:

It’s easier on the pocket: Siopaella, for example sells pre-loved handbags for up to half the price of new ones and you will regularly find real bargains in second-hand shops.

It’s fun!: Second hand shopping is a different experience from trawling through generic high street stores. You never know what you are going to find.

It’s a treasure trove: With so many unique items from diverse sources to riffle through, there is something for everyone. You are sure to find your next signature piece.

It’s guilt free: With vintage shopping you can enjoy the thrill that a fabulous new purchase brings safe in the knowledge that you are acting in an environmentally conscious manner.
