Over the last year, I rummaged through a lot of my storage and the bulk of the stuff was, you guessed it, clothes. I used to buy like it was (retail) therapy and accumulated much more than I would ever be able to wear. Taking stock kind of made me feel ashamed, so I decided to make a plan of action and change my ways. Here are my tips on how to tackle this daunting task; I also celebrate two eco fashion heroes I admire. We can be sustainable and still enjoy luxury in fashion, I promise.
I used to spend a fortune on dry cleaning. It’s not only very expensive, but the chemicals used aren’t great for clothes, your skin or the environment, let alone the amount of wasteful plastic wrapping involved. I have raved about this appliance before but I have to say again how much I love my Samsung AirDresser, a digital cupboard that sits within your closet and cleans and straightens your clothes once placed inside, meaning more wears in between professional cleans. It has paid for itself, many times over, with the tens of thousands of dollars saved on dry cleaning.
