Simple mending tips to maintain your sustainable wardrobe (replace buttons, close holes, etc)
I’ve collaborated with Ethical Made Easy to share some simple mending techniques to help extend the lifespan of our existing garments. Because as you may have heard me mention many times before, the most sustainable thing we can do is to use and maintain what we already have!
Ethical Made Easy ( https://ethicalmadeeasy.com ) is a platform which, as the name suggests, help make it easy to find ethical and sustainable clothing, beauty, homewares and lifestyle brands in one place. If you’re moving towards a more conscious wardrobe, definitely check out their brand directory and newly launched store for NZ and Australian brands, alongside well-researched articles sharing tips and resources to help you adopt a more ethical lifestyle.
Essentially, they’re your go to destination for finding good people doing good things!
