We are grateful that you are considering lowering your impact on the planet by making more conscious fashion choices. There are many more ways in which you can contribute when it comes to buying, wearing and taking care of your wardrobe. Please consider the below options:
- Consider alternatives before buying new clothes; vintage or second-hand items can be great additions to your wardrobe, or you may be able to repair or alter your old clothes to breathe new life into them.
- Avoid buying multiple sizes or styles to try at home with the aim of returning (part of) them. We are very happy to assist you by providing you the exact measurements of each style and size before purchasing, or even send you detailed images if needed. Our customer service team is happy to help you.
- If for some reason the item you ordered still does not fit or suit you, consider alternatives to returning it. A friend or relative might like it, or you could sell it using a resell platform. To thank you for helping us avoid the impact caused by returning, restocking, repacking and shipping it out again, we will give you a significant discount on your next order. Please contact us for more details.
Cleaning your garments cannot be avoided completely, but there are many great ways to limit water usage and the amount of microfibers being released into our water:
- Wash less often and only if really necessary; spot removing stains and hanging them outdoors or in a (damp) bathroom might be sufficient to make them stain and odor free.
- To reduce friction and thereby the release of fibers, group similar fabrics together, run only full loads and use liquid detergent instead of powder. Reducing friction is also imperative in making your clothes last longer.
- Always use the shortest washing cycle possible and the coldest setting needed to get your clothes clean. Less time and heat will not only reduce water usage and fiber shedding, but it is good for your wallet too.
- Make sure to throw away any residue when cleaning your machine’s (lint) filters in the trash, not down the sink.
We are continuously learning and are always open to feedback or suggestions to add to this list. Just reach out to us.
