Fast fashion is accelerating year on year and its environmental impacts are also snowballing. The average Australian acquires 27 kilograms of clothing per person every year! At the same time, we throw away an average of 23 kilos of clothing per year, of which more than 90% goes directly to landfill.
Enter: sustainable fashion brands. Fortunately, Melbourne has a thriving sustainable fashion scene filled with brands that like to do things a little more eco-friendly. From conscious manufacturing practices to recycled materials, these brands can help minimize your wardrobe’s carbon footprint.
