Tips on Sustainable Fashion - Celebrate Rainforest All Year Round
Celebrate Rainforest Day with FabARTonstuff
Plus tips on sustainable living
The Rainforest Partnership established World Rainforest Day on June 22nd as a "collaborative effort to promote awareness and inspire action to safeguard one of Earth's most valuable resources, our rainforests."
Rainforests are crucial because they help to safeguard our world. They help produce freshwater, absorb excess carbon in the atmosphere, and regulate our climate, according to Rainforest Partnership. People are beginning to recognize the need to preserve our rainforests in the midst of the present climate catastrophe.
FabARTonstuff has designed a special collection to aid with the preservation of the rainforest. For every garment sold, FabARTonstuff contributes $5 CAD to the Rainforest Trust. View our collection here You Toucan Save The Rainforest
"I don't live near the rainforest," you may be thinking. "What should I do?" This is a very reasonable question. You may make numerous modest adjustments in your life to become more environmentally aware. And, certainly, even the smallest of adjustments make a difference. Here are some ideas to assist you in making changes. Let’s all do our share to keep the earth safe.
Shop your closet or organize a closet swap
The clothes you currently own are the most sustainable. Go through your closet and look for older clothing you haven't worn in a while. Invite your pals over for a closet swap, then set up a RainForest Trust and ask everyone to donate $5 for every item exchanged.
Repair and upcycleRepair those rips and tears that inevitably happen even with the best of care. Most of the time seams go first in garments and they’re usually easy to mend. You may have discovered a few new talents during quarantine, so why not add mending to your repertoire? Upcycling is also a great way to bring new life to clothes you already own. Get creative: add glitter, beading, turn your old jeans into shorts - the possibilities are endless!
Change your mindset toward fashion
Fast fashion is killing our environment with tons of textile waste! Think about buying high-quality garments that will endure for many years. This is a more sustainable option than keeping up with every fad, and you may save money in the long run.
Creating a capsule wardrobe is a good place to start. The idea is mix and match a few newer items with your favorite classic pieces. In celebration of Rainforest Day, FabARTonstuff has designed a special ‘You TouCan Collection’ that shows you how you can do just that!
Take one garment and create a variety of looks for many different occasions: in and out of the gym, on and off the mat, all dressed up and casual chic or effortless cool! From sports leggings, tank tops and cropped tees to athletic tees and more, FabARTonstuff is what to wear everywhere! Remember, for every garment sold in this collection, FabARTonstuff contributes $5 CAD to the Rainforest Trust. View our collection here You Toucan Save The Rainforest
Shop pre-loved clothing
Buying thrift shop clothes can prolong the life cycle of garments reducing environmental waste. What’s more, combing through racks of pre-loved clothing and discovering items that speak to you can be a lot of fun and might help you build your own unique style! Be sure to donate your unwanted clothes to your local thrift shop as well.
While thrift shops may become your new fashion bestie, it’s still important to consider reducing your overall consumption, because unfortunately, many thrift store items still end up in landfills.
Americans generate an estimated 11 million tons of textile trash each year! Remember the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse, recycle – the first R being the most important of the three!
