Back to School: Having Fun with Sustainable Fashion

Buying back to school clothes in 2021

Going back to school marks a milestone in your child’s life. They are growing older and getting bigger, but they are also developing more into the person they will become.

One of the most exciting parts about going back to school is buying back to school clothes!

Back to school shopping is a great time to spend time with your little one(s). This is also a special time to guide them with how they want to express themselves through their clothing choices. It’s no secret that when you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, you succeed! 


What is sustainable clothing?

Another way to set your kids up for success in this world is to educate them about the importance of ethically-made, sustainable clothing. 

These days, the little ones deeply care about the environment and feel a responsibility to protect it - why not nurture that curiosity beginning with what they wear every day. 

Sustainable clothing is clothing that has been made in a mindful way. The movement of sustainable fashion encourages clothing to be made in a way that minimizes environmental damage, is created in a setting where people are treated safely and fairly, and waste and pollution is kept at a minimum.

There are a few different ways to shop sustainably. When many people think about what it means to shop sustainable, the first answer is thrifting. 

Thrift shopping reduces the amount of waste by recycling the clothing. But it also reduces the carbon footprint in terms of manufacturing. Thrifting is a win-win for both the consumer and the environment.
