Making the change to an ethical closet and feeling overwhelmed? Our guide provides simple tips that will change your perspective and save you money in your journey to slow fashion and conscious clothing.
1. take care
Learn to care for you clothes properly so that they will last for years. Enjoy the process of caring for you items, remembering all of the special moments and places they have taken you.
2. keep it fresh
Finding different ways to style a piece refreshes it and makes it feel like you've never worn it before. Look for inspiration online, in magazines, and in the world around you. Mix vintage finds with your favorite staples to create new and fashionable combinations.

5. support ethical brands
Do research to find ethical brands that truly care about people and the planet and value humanity over profits. Your dollar has the power to change an industry. Read our guide for more info on the difference between ethical fashion, slow fashion, and sustainable fashion.
