Sustainable fashion or slow fashion refers to clothing that is designed, manufactured, distributed and used in ways which are ethical and environmentally friendly.
This wheel demonstrates the 7 forms of sustainable fashion. Ideally, all 7 forms should be combined for new clothing!
When the garment is completely worn out, it should be returned to a recycling collection point, to be reused in the manufacturing of new clothes or other textile products. Bear in mind clothes are only recyclable if they are made from 100% of a material (e.g. 100% polyester, instead of 80% polyester, 20% elastane).
Consider starting at step 6 or 7 when you need new clothes!
